The difference between the Lean Six Sigma Belt levels
Most people are familiar with the Lean Six Sigma Belt levels (White, Yellow, Green, Black and Master), but we are often asked to explain the difference between them. Who should do which Belt? What can they expect once someone achieves the various Belt standards?
If you are interested in understanding the Belts and what they mean to you or to your organisation, then presumably, you are working in an organisation which has, or is in the process of establishing, a culture of continuous improvement. The thinking, methods and tools of Lean Six Sigma are important to you.
You value people as individuals and their knowledge of the work. You want to engage them in creative problem solving, and believe that it is everyone’s job to build, maintain and improve the system.
