Six Sigma implementation is a multi-step process with different tasks at different levels of leadership.

Yellow Belts are focused on the data – analyzing, measuring, and collecting metrics to help organizations identify areas of strength and weakness to plan best practices moving forward. Meanwhile, overall management of a project and all that it entails generally lies with the Green Belt.
