CLSSYB Certifications


What’s CLSSYB?

In the Six Sigma Philosophy there are several belt levels; white, yellow, green, and black belts. During the history of Six Sigma most of the training attention has focused upon Green and Black Belts.  This extensive and generally expensive training which provides key Six Sigma statistical tools and approaches allow for complex problems to be solved.

ISCEA Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training, and Certified Lean Six Sigma Executive Yellow Belt Training provides information to minimize these risks.

The ISCEA Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is focused on providing training to all individuals who may be working with now and the future Six Sigma organizations.


ISCEA, The International Supply Chain Education Alliance, conducts many workshops to improve the knowledge of Manufacturing and Service industry professionals worldwide. ISCEA’s mission is to be a single source for Total Supply Chain Knowledge through Education, Certification, and Recognition. ISCEA is the developer of internationally recognized certification programs of Certified Supply Chain Manager (CSCM), Certified Supply Chain Analyst (CSCA), Certified Lean Master (CLM), and Certified RFID Master (RFIDSCM). ISCEA is the governing body for the Ptak Prize. ISCEA members typically hold mid to upper supply chain management positions in Global 2000 companies.


This training is quite expensive and requires a large time commitment for training which generally includes validation projects. The idea that Black Belts and Master Black Belts would in turn teach and educate project sponsors (investors) and project members on the team so that they could become “yellow belts” has historically been overlooked.

We feel that by overlooking this has increased the risk of failure to many organizational Six Sigma initiatives.  The foundation of a Six Sigma company is knowledge management and it is crucial that everyone understands how Six Sigma works and how they can provide value.  Also, many plant managers, middle level managers and executives who are asked to invest as sponsors to Six Sigma have not been provided information to make the investments.

The ISCEA Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt presentation and instruction will provide an overall insight to the techniques of Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies. As a certified Yellow Belt you will be capable of participating as a core team member or subject matter expert on a project within your company. In addition, Yellow Belts are often responsible for running smaller pro-cess improvement projects using their Six Sigma tools and methodology.

ISCEA CLSSYB will help employees to foster buy-in to the Six Sigma tools, enhance day-to-day workplace activities seeking reduction in cycle-times, improved quality, and less waste. Six Sigma Yellow Belt training provides an introduction to process management and the basic tools of Six Sigma, giving employees a stronger understanding of processes, enabling each individual to provide meaningful assistance in achieving the organization’s overall objectives. Yellow Belt certification provides the stepping stones for further Green Belt and Black Belt Certification.
