Kansas State University offers Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification courses

Submitted by Ashley Nietfeld

Kansas State University is offering three opportunities in 2022 to complete the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certifications, either online or on the Manhattan campus.

An online Yellow Belt course is scheduled for Jan. 13-14, 2022, while in-person courses will be offered on campus May 16-17, 2022, and Aug. 18-19, 2022.

Lean Six Sigma is a business management system that allows organizations of all types to drastically improve their bottom line by creating, measuring and monitoring everyday business activities that lead to reduced waste, fewer mistakes and increased customer satisfaction.

"We've offered the Yellow Belt to faculty and staff at K-State as well as industry professionals with great success," said Daniel Minick, instructor of operations management in the College of Business Administration. "We've also had students complete the program and include the certification on their resumes, which in many cases became the deciding factor in getting a job offer."

For more information on K-State's Lean Six Sigma offerings, including registration for next year's Yellow Belt courses, visit the website or contact Minick at dminick@k-state.edu or Debbie Hagenmaier at debbieh@k-state.edu
