What Customers Are Saying
"My main purpose and ambition in my career has been to help people create direction, structure and improve their work toward the achievement of their team goals. George's green belt and black belt training has enabled me as a business improvement practitioner to provide a far more superior service to my colleagues at work. George's tutelage is forever inspiring and he has an amazing ability to take highly complex concepts and create understanding and applicability. Since we started our journey with George we have seen our operation move from a highly unorganized, unstructured, variable and cashflow negative operation to the rising star in the company portfolio. We have improved our drill metre advances and stoping tonnages by 30% in 2019 and realized profitability for the first time since the inception of the project. Thanks George for all your energy and inspiration through our business improvement journey."
Gary-Jon Brown - Mondi Group South Africa
"George delivers such an informative course that is not only practical but also gives you the tools to apply it in the real world."
Peter Pasquareli - Australia
"I have done six sigma training a couple of times informally. This is by far well thought out. I have used a couple of the tips and tricks for project delivery. I think the stakeholder engagement part and problem statement components of this course are the best."

Your Trainer and Coach - George Lee Sye
George is not a lean or six sigma zealot. That doesn't mean he isn't knowledgeable technically. What it does mean is that he's committed to the idea of improvement and getting results effectively using whatever tools make the most sense. And that's what he teaches his students.

After more than two decades of leading projects and practical application, with a dedication to studying that which works most effectively, George has developed an extraordinary, widely sought after, body of knowledge upon which this training is built. His story is here.


Frequently Asked Questions

Do students need to complete a project during the training phase?
No they don't, the purpose of this phase of certification is to confirm ability to use lean tools only.

Application of lean and six sigma methods in the solving of problems is confirmed in the LSS Green Belt certification process after students lead an improvement project.
Do students need to complete a project to get certified?
Yes, this is important for two reasons:

(a) the students learns how to apply the different methodologies in the real world situation of the work place, and

(b) value is generated for the host company through working on an actual value adding improvement project.
How does the coach work with a coaching student during the project phase?
The coach will provide just-in-time video based pro tutorials that will help them set up for the project work, and undertake activities that follow a carefully thought out sequence of work.

The ultimate goal is to guide the student in taking their project to the point where solutions are identified and an implementation plan is underway ... as a minimum.

In reality, the actual implementation of solutions may take much longer than the 26 week coaching program time frame.

Students will have up to 1-hour of coaching calls available during this phase.
How does a student know what tools they need to show competency with?
Assignment guides provide all of the information a student needs to undertake the work.

If a student completes all assignments, they will have worked with the lean tools listed as evidence requirements.

Those who have chosen the certification option, will be provided with a checklist of tools that must be lodged for certification.
How will a student know what the standard is for using a tool?
If students provide evidence that is similar to what is shown in the text book - Process Mastery with Lean Six Sigma - they will have met the minimum standard.

The standard the coach is looking for when reviewing work is also described in each assignment.
Does a student need to use every tool in their project?
Definitely not!

Competency with tools is assessed during the lean practitioner course and six sigma practitioner course.

During the project phase, we simply want the student to (a) lead a DAMIC oriented project that (b) solves a problem and (c) provide the specifically listed evidence related to that work as well as (d) an affidavit confirming the value they generate through their work.

The focus here is on execution of a project, not use of tools.
What happens if a GB Pro coaching student does not lodge assignments?
It is ultimately up to the student to do the work. In cases where they don't, the coach will prompt them.

In cases where it persists and the coaching arrangement is part of a larger company contract, the coach will escalate the situation by providing information to the relevant BI Manager or representative.
How is the certification exam conducted?
The exam is conducted online via the 9 Skills Factory platform.

It is a self-paced, open book exam where students are given 7-days to complete the 4 parts.

Each of the parts can be undertaken separately and on different days according to what works best for the student.
How will a student know if they’ve passed the exam?
The pass rate is set at a minimum of 80 percent correct.

For each part of the examination, students get immediate feedback on (a) whether or not they passed and (b) the percentage answered correctly.
What does a student do if they do not pass the exam?
The student can undertake the exam as many times as they need to in order to achieve a pass result during the 7-day examination period.

It's not the intention of the exam to test memory, rather the intention is to reinforce learning and test their ability to find answers and utilise the tools.
