Waste Walk and Process Identification

Yellow Belt training is the first level of training in Six Sigma. Yellow Belts are individuals often responsible for the implementation of improvements identified by the Six Sigma process. It is vital that organisations implementing Six Sigma have a culture of improvement and a fundamental understanding of how improvements are identified, implemented and monitored.
