Six Sigma Yellow Belt Specialization

This Specialization*, developed by the University System of Georgia, is for you if you are looking to learn more about Six Sigma or refresh your knowledge of the basic components of Six Sigma and Lean. Six Sigma skills are widely sought by employers both nationally and internationally. These skills have been proven to help improve business processes, performance, and quality assurance. You will learn proven principles and tools specific to six sigma and lean.

Upon completion of this specialization, learners will have created a project charter, project team charter, data collection plan, process map, along with null and alternative hypotheses, problem statement, business case, goal statement, process and scope description, and timeline. All these will be created using the six sigma principles and tools they learned.

Yellow Belt knowledge is needed before advancing to Green Belt (which is a second specialization offered on Coursera). Note that completing these Specialization does not give the learner "professional accreditation" in Six Sigma. However, successful completion will assist in better preparation for such professional accreditation testing.

Once you successfully complete all the required courses including the Capstone, you will earn the Specialization Certificate from Coursera and the University System of Georgia, which you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
