Certified Green Belt What Does That Mean?

So I got my certification as a Six Sigma green Belt and you ask, "what does that mean"?

Overview of Green Belt

Six Sigma Green Belts are the project leaders.

A Green Belt is a primary driver of Six Sigma methodology. He is a person who is trained in Six Sigma skills to the same level as the Black Belt (black belt training is a ton more of math). Green Belts work part time on the chosen projects and undergo lesser intensive (more math)training than Black Belts. They lead a project under a Black Belt (BB). A Green Belt will apply project specific DMAIC skills. Green Belt projects are locally focused i.e. they work on smaller projects which are limited to a single department.

The methodology used by Green belts is known as DMAIC. DMAIC has five interconnected phases- Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. I went through this discussion in an earlier postings on the DMAIC subject.
