The Green Belt program will develop the capability and skills to lead improvement initiatives within your organization.

The program enables immediate application and benefit through a requirement to complete a workplace improvement project. This ‘apply-it now’ approach can generate tangible benefits for your organization. For example, recent Green Belt projects have focused on improving:

  • Digitize policy review cycle through maximizing existing IT infrastructure capabilities
  • Increase number of client satisfaction survey responses received
  • Optimize agency-wide evaluation surveys
  • Improve client experience by decreasing client wait times

As well as live instructor-led training, participants receive access to a subject matter expert mentor throughout the program. Our mentors have significant experience supporting public health organizations and will provide guidance on all aspects of the program – subject matter queries, project scoping and execution.
