The Lean Yellow Belt is 3 days in duration due to the number of methodologies that are discussed. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is a 1-day course that speaks to Waste, Lean and Six Sigma definitions.

Neither of these courses require a math background, although basis algebra is used in some of the sessions.
