Yellow Belt/Lean Practitioner runs for 2 workdays, the Green Belt runs for two further workshop days and the Black Belt for a further 3 workshop days.

Green and Black Belts

The Green and Black belts also require the candidate to complete online modules which support the workshops. Candidates will join other cohorts from different months as we like to get at least 5 into a workshop. We support the candidate in leading their projects which should have a substantial business case. Candidates are provided in a licence for Sigma XL.

We run an Lean-Agile-DevOps one day workshop and these are scheduled as required.

The next one is on the 6th December.

Programs are compliant to the competencies under ISO18404

Philosophy and Approach


We use known frameworks and academic research to establish a culture and structure for sustainable continuous improvement

Training at different levels is important to develop the competencies in improvement methods but  is not sufficient for an improvement culture to become sustained.  Sometimes training can even have a negative effect.  Organisations bring in trainers and when they leave, very little is left behind.  People are not given time or resources.  There is no structure in place to ensure that improvement is driven strategically.  This can mean that the people who have done the training get frustrated and leave.

Training is necessary but not sufficient.

Lean Sigma Institute has researched sustainability of continuous improvement programs for many years and published on the subject.  This is the basis for our work. 

  • Training in Lean Six Sigma at Yellow, Green, Black Belt and Master Black Belt levels to ISO18404
  • Training in Lean Practititoner, Lean Leader and Lean Expert to ISO18404
  • Training in Lean-Agile-DevOps
  • Coaching and mentoring of Black and Green belts in project work.
  • Consulting and workshops for management in establishing sustainable continuous improvement
  • Coaching in advanced statistics methods to solve specific problems.
  • Assisting organisations in developing the systems and structures which support sustainable improvement (such as Quality Management Systems and pipeline structures).
  • Providing general management, short term support to small and medium sized enterprises in the event of organizational and structural changes.

As experienced managers and consultants we are comfortable working with people at all levels from the boardroom to the shop floor.

We have a strong interest in research and education and aim to promote wider understanding of the methods, tools and techniques of sustainable improvement, through our own research, support for conferences, networks and discussions groups.


Lean Sigma Institute provides the whole range of improvement support, consulting, training and facilitation, to assist organizations achieve World Class levels of performance in their operations.

For the potential “Change Drivers” in your organisation we provide advanced improvement skills training in Lean Six Sigma to Black, Green, Yellow and White Belt levels to achieve internationally recognized registration as Professional Practitioners.

However, training is not sufficient for an organization to actually achieve World Class levels of performance. There are often internal barriers and limitations that hinder organisations, making them “under-achievers”. Training and education needs to be carried out within a context of monitored performance that can identify these barriers and deal with them. See A Model for Strategic Implementation of Continual Improvement.

Our background as practitioners, managers and consultants assists us in the role as trainers and facilitators of performance improvement in your organization.

Professional Development

Continued Professional Development Programmes

People who go through our training programs successfully gain registration on the Lean Sigma Institute’s register of Lean Six Sigma Professionals.

To maintain this registration, we expect that people will maintain their professional competence through a range of different activities.

Registering for the CPD Programme is easily completed by joining the Lean Sigma MeetUp Group.

*Registration with the Lean Sigma Institute is free. On-going professional development is important to maintain respect for LSS professionals. Register Here.

Join our MeetUp Group for further Professional Development opportunities.

The aim of the Continuing Professional Development program (CPD) is to:

  • develop relationships with similar professionals, peers and possible mentors 
  • develop your professional competencies
  • help establish professional standards
  • introduce LSS candidates to new topics related to continuous improvement, innovation and design
  • make candidates aware of other relevant professional bodies, e.g. Association of Manufacturing Excellence, ASQ, JASANZ, Australia Organization for Quality, Data Science Melbourne, Pex Network


Lean Sigma Institute will tailor a 1, 2 or 3 day workshop to suits your needs. For example, at a recent workshop there were 10 participants and the focus of the training was around time value and value stream mapping, 5S, FMEA and root cause analysis. The company involved was a service organization.

In some cases this may form a part of a Lean Six Sigma Belt depending on the content of the workshop. In other cases it might be part of an overall strategy to implement continuous improvement within the organization.
