Lean Six Sigma Green Belt with Capstone Project Turnkey
image description

LSS Green Belt Certification with Capstone Course led by an Expert TQG Instructor.


This turn-key course makes rapid scaling of your improvement initiative simple. It includes an expert instructor from The Quality Group’s OpusWorks® Institute who is highly skilled in delivering an all-virtual classroom experience. This frees up your expert practitioners to focus on leading projects to deliver tangible results. Your expert practitioners can also provide more coaching and mentoring to your developing Green Belts and Black Belts, accelerating your speed to results. This course is simple, flexible, and adaptable to meet your needs.

This course combines all the material covered in the "Lean Six Sigma Green Belt" course, plus the addition of our simulated Capstone Project. The simulated Capstone Project option is highly recommended as it brings students together to work a simulated project from start to finish in small teams to further cement the knowledge transfer. The total course time is approximately 4.5 in-class days spread over 10-12 weeks. The simulated Capstone Project can be integrated into an all-virtual format over the 10-12 weeks or can be completed at the end of the course in a physical classroom - your choice.


This course requires 22-26 hours to complete Part 1 of the self-paced e-Learning. Because the course is self-paced, a student can take individual modules over a series of a few days or many days, at his or her preference, based upon a timeline that may be established by the customer organization.

This course requires 15-21 hours to complete Part 2 of the Capstone Project, approximately 21 in-person hours spaced over 3 days, or approximately 15 hours spaced over 4 sessions, if in a virtual team setting.

This is a turn-key class that includes an expert TQG OpusWorks Institute Instructor.


  • Is three days long
  • Follows DMAIC
  • Is technically rigorous and includes tools, data, simulations, and report-outs
  • Is team oriented (which is the case for most real-world process improvement projects)
  • Tests Lean Six Sigma knowledge, with feedback for learning
PART 1 Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Methods

This self-paced course covers Lean Six Sigma methodologies at the Green Belt level skill sets.

This course section includes:
  • E-Learning Modules
  • Student Guides for each module
  • End of Module Test
  • End of Course Certification Exam
  • Instructor Guides
  • 35 modules that artfully blend the tools of Lean and the techniques of Six Sigma within the rigorous DMAIC methodology and statistical tool set.
  • Learn anywhere at your own pace 24/7 with the online self-paced course, versus typical 100% classroom-based instruction.
  • Features media-rich interactive content. Students can download student guides (at no additional charge), complete pre- and post-tests, and go back to review materials.
PART 2 Simulated Capstone Project
This course section includes:
  • Capstone Project Student Guide
  • Capstone Project Instructor Guide
  • More than 20 electronic project tools/templates
  • Students supplement their self-paced learning (with the modules described above) by participating in small teams with other students to complete a simulated Capstone Project that can be done with in-person or virtual teams.
  • The Capstone Project is a web-based simulated project of a real-world problem, in which students work in teams, facilitated by the customer organization, to gain training and practice in applying DMAIC principles to a fictitious Department of Motor Vehicles Process for a New or Renewed Driver’s License.
  • Teach an improved thinking process that incorporates the use of tools learned in Part 1 of the course.
  • Use the "define, measure, analyze, improve, and control" (DMAIC) phase tools and methods to identify the root causes of the problem, simulate options, and provide potential solutions for process improvement.
  • During the Capstone Project portion of the course, students will go through the following phases and complete the deliverables tools associated with each phase. Upon successful completion of the Capstone Project, and the solving of the fictitious DMV problem, students will be much better equipped to run and successfully complete their own projects, for a process significant to their own organization.
