The final phase of the DMAIC process is the control phase. In this module you will learn about control tools that are useful in maintaining improvements. Communication is a key component of the control phase therefore it is important to develop standardized documentation.

This module is the "capstone project." You should only complete this project if you have taken all three previous yellow belt specialization courses (Six Sigma Fundamentals, Six Sigma Tools for Define and Measure, and Six Sigma Tools for Analyze), AND you want to complete this specialization. It should be noted that completing the Yellow Belt Specialization does not give the learner "professional accreditation" in Six Sigma. However, successful completion will assist in better preparation for such professional accreditation testing.
