Who is this training course aimed at?
The Green Belt in Lean training is specially for (prospective) project managers of improvement projects. As a rule of thumb, we assert that if you spend 15%-50% of your work time on improvement projects, Green Belt is the most suitable training course for you.
The delegates in our training groups generally come from a mix of sectors. From government to corporate service providers, and from education to industry. This promotes learning from one another and ensures you gain an even better understanding of the Lean philosophy.
What can you do as a Green Belt in Lean?
With a Green Belt in Lean certificate from UPD, you can execute (complex) change programmes in your organisation independently. You know how to identify wastage and its causes. You apply tools and techniques independently to reduce the lead time of processes and improve the quality of them at the same time.
It is crucial to devote attention to the human aspect of change for the sustainability of improvement programmes. You will therefore have gained the skills to generate support for and acceptance of improvement initiatives on completion of training.
Your takeaways after this training
You learn how to lead improvement programmes in accordance with the Lean Six Sigma philosophy as a project manager. That means that on completion of training, you will possess knowledge and expertise in:
- Lean Management, Lean Thinking, wastage and Continuous Improvement;
- Value Stream Mapping, Current State & Future State;
- 5S, Visual Management & Lean Operational Management;

Lean Green Belt Program
To be an effective Green Belt, it is essential that you learn the theory, understand it, and are ultimately able to apply it. We will send you the login details for the e-learning environment after you register. Here you can take in all the theory at your own pace as often as you want! Your trainer(s) will tell you what theory you need to have covered before the start of each lesson. That is incredibly important for learning as much as possible in the subsequent practical lessons. Access to the e-learning environment is valid for a year, so you can fall back on this as often as you want.
Your training consists of 4 days of lessons. The day starts at 09.00 o’clock and ends around 17.00 o’clock. The lessons are all about practical application of the theory you have learned. You are given every opportunity to ask questions, but we then go straight to how to use this knowledge to lead improvement projects as a Green Belt in Lean.
The content of the Green Belt in Lean training course consists of several modules, which you can fully explore yourself. Lessons are tailored to the needs of the group, so you yourself can decide how intensively specific subjects are covered. The subjects below will be covered in the theory in any case and during lessons where necessary:
- The 5 basic principles of Lean
- Identifying and reducing wastage
- Value Stream Mapping – Current and Future State
- Visual Management and Standard Work
