Yellow Belt Program
DeakinPrime, a division of Deakin University, believes in maximising the benefit of all learning by providing the most effective learning experience. Our philosophy of Lean Six Sigma learning focuses on the 70:20:10 delivery model, which benefits both individuals and organisations.
DeakinPrime's learning delivery model
The program is designed for people new to Lean Six Sigma or those involved in assisting a Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt.
This one-day interactive workshop is delivered by experienced, practising Lean Six Sigma experts.
The program will cover the best practices of Lean Six Sigma. Upon completion of both the one-day workshop and workplace coaching, participants will be able to:
- use Lean Six Sigma tools to enable the DMAIC (develop, measure, analyse, improve, control) process
- apply the DMAIC process
- participate in Lean Six Sigma projects.
The DeakinPrime Yellow Belt program is an introductory program that uses case studies and workshops combined with theory to introduce the core competencies of Lean Six Sigma.
'Our offer is distinctly different because we do not teach: we facilitate and coach. The DeakinPrime program balances the need for you to practise and learn in the workplace while providing you with the foundational understanding required to reposition your mind when participating in Lean Six Sigma projects.'
As part of this experience you will have the option of becomming a certified Yellow Belt by engaging with our highly experienced facilitator as a workplace coach. Your coach will work with you on real-life activities to ensure you are proficient enough to contribute. Our model of delivery provides an ongoing option to seek support from our Black Belts as coaches, allowing you to truly embed the practices in the workplace.
Our facilitators are Lean Six Sigma practitioners, not theorists. They are Black Belt experts with experience in the utilities, aviation, finance and defence sectors whose improvements in the business functions of strategic planning, procurement, complex project management, information technology, human resources, business development, finance and supply chain management have achieved multimillion dollar results.
The program will include a practice-based workshop and allows for one-on-one coaching time with an experienced practitioner who will focus on your needs.
The DeakinPrime Lean Six Sigma approach develops an integrated perspective through project management units.

- Focus on the customer’s requirements.
- Identify and understand the current state.
