The LSS: Green Belt program provides the opportunity to fully apply learning to a project, so it is important to have a project identified in advance. In order to take advantage of the course content and support, it is strongly recommended that the project be limited in scope with the goal of completion in about four months after the last class session.
We recommend selecting a project that is part of a department goal or objective so that it is supported by management. If the contemplated project is large or complex, consider selecting one aspect or component of it for the LSS: Green Belt project.
Finally, while professionals are called upon to address an array of problems and issues, we recommend that the selected project be one of high interest and offers intrinsic motivation to complete.
