Green Belts are part time Six Sigma professionals, who are skilled in Six Sigma, but usually work in the Six Sigma teams, rather than run the projects (a role usually reserved for Black Belts, although Green Belts can run projects with Black Belt supervision). It can be a stepping stone on the way to being a Black Belt, or a role for people who want to be involved in projects, so that they can bring their new expertise back to their main role, and help spread process improvement knowledge throughout the business.
Green Belts have usually had at very least a week’s training, and so have fairly thorough Six Sigma skills, although still falling far short of the Black Belts. They can however help run the projects and keep them on track, and do specific high level tasks for the Black Belts. Green belts generally spend about a week (full time) training to be a Green Belt, and may take part in projects during that time.
Green Belt Jobs
Generally speaking green belts will have roles in the company that have nothing to do with Six Sigma, which will take up most of their time. They’re Six Sigma part timers, who have a lot of the skills, and will usually spend on average about one day a week working on projects under the supervision of Black Belts
