What can you expect from the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training?—Something great, creative, and different.
The learning experience will be extremely interactive and tailored to the needs of the participants. The instructors have a wide breadth of experience, and can produce examples from practically every organization type (commercial (manufacturing and service), government and military, non-profit, etc.) and the entire spectrum of functional areas (IT, HR, R&D, finance, engineering, sales, contracting, etc.).
We will cover academic material so students understand the foundational theories, but this is coupled with practical applications to solidify a firm understanding of the value these methodologies offer. The simulations we utilize are energizing and challenging – and some can be quite competitive, so bring your A-game. Our courses are designed to be mentorship sessions, opportunities for students to spend time with a proven, seasoned expert. It’s a time for questions and answers, a real conversation focused on improving your skill set and your organization.

The team from Roxtar dug down to our roots and worked with our team members throughout our organization to find the root cause of our concerns and implement corrective action plans. They were able to get immediate buy-in from our team members simply through the successes demonstrated in our first major Lean event with them. Benefits were reaped immediately and our team craved more. A common phrase among our Assembly Department arose – “When is Roxtar coming back?”. Thanks Roxtar for laying the ground work to get us moving forward on a continuous improvement plan!” —Manufacturing Manager at GVM, Inc.
