Six Sigma Yellow, Green, and Black Belt Training
Six Sigma is a methodology used to improve business processes by utilizing statistical analysis rather than guesswork. This proven approach has been implemented within a myriad of industries to achieve hard and soft money savings, while increasing customer satisfaction.

The Six Sigma methodology is defined by 5 DMAIC steps. DMAIC is the acronym for Define - Measure - Analyze - Improve - Control.
