Foundation concludes “Six Sigma” Yellow Belt classes

Starting in November, the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation hosted the Lean “Six Sigma” Yellow Belt presentations at its offices in Irving for more than 30 participants to include area nurses, quality directors and pharmacists. Classes concluded today and graduates were presented certificates and Six Sigma Yellow Belts from instructor Stephen Griffin.

Six Sigma’s Yellow Belt Certification is a program providing insight into the techniques of improvement methodologies. The training provides introductions to process management and teamwork while enabling individuals to achieve objectives. Participants gather data and work together in problem solving exercises.
