Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification provides an overall insight to the techniques of Lean Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies.

A yellow belt must know how to integrate Lean Six Sigma methodologies for the improvement of production and transactional systems to better meet customer expectations and bottom-line objectives of their organization.

In addition, Yellow Belts may often be responsible for running smaller process improvement projects.
