Seylan expands accreditation of Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts


Continuing its commitment to operational excellence, Seylan accredited the Bank’s second batch of Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts recently. The certification ceremony was attended by Kapila Ariyaratne – Dir/CEO, Ramesh Jayasekara – Chief Operating Officer, Malik Wickramanayake – Deputy General Manager Operations, Ruchith Liyanage – Head of Cards and Ranmore VanDort – Senior Manager Business Process Re-engineering and 19 newly certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts.

Seylan Bank initiated Lean Six Sigma training at the Yellow Belt level in 2019 with the aim of transforming operations into the next level of efficiency. The projects focus on several key aspects such as improving customer experience by reducing product delivery time, optimising the usage of consumables, improving service quality by reducing rework/mistakes and saving staff time and creating capacity for sustainable business growth.

The training and certification are carried out by Seylan Bank’s own experienced and certified Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt trainers. The certification undergoes a well-defined approval process where approvals from different levels are required for the projects to be certified. With the success of the Yellow Belt training, Seylan also commenced Green Belt training in 2021, maintaining its bid to empower internal stakeholders while providing simplified solutions to customers.
