Lean Sigma for Public Health Green Belt Training

  • April 9th, 10th and 11th, 2024
  • April 16th, 17th and 18th, 2024

Time:  12:30 pm – 4:00 pm EST

Having taken White and Yellow Belt training, you will develop an in-depth understanding of those essential Lean tools and practices that can be applied to increase efficiency and quality of service; improve access to service; increase capacity; decrease/avoid costs; improve satisfaction among staff and community and create an ongoing culture of continuous quality improvement. The Green Belt program will develop the capability and skills to facilitate/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:

  • Vaccine and medication ordering
  • Intake process for infant and child development programs
  • Condom distribution
  • Student flow through VPD immunization clinics
  • Purchase, storage, assembly and delivery of harm reduction kits

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.
