Time to completion can vary based on your schedule, but most learners are able to complete the Specialization in about 4 months.
What background knowledge is necessary?
A "Yellow Belt" level of knowledge about Six Sigma is highly recommended. This can be acquired by successful completion of the Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate offered on Coursera by the USG.
Those having a strong business background and a firm understanding of basic business operations and principles will do better in this specialization.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
It is highly recommended that you take the courses and modules in their designed order as much of the knowledge builds upon previous courses and modules.
The proper sequence of this specialization is:
Course #1 - Six Sigma and the Organization (Advanced)
Course #2 - Six Sigma Advanced Define and Measure Phase
Course #3 - Six Sigma Advanced Analyze Phase
Course #4 - Six Sigma Advanced Improve and Control Phase
You will not earn university credit for the completion of this specialization.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
Upon completion of this specialization, learners should be able to further their career by helping their organization’s quality assurance using proven six sigma principles and tools.
The principles taught in this specialization are aligned with the "Certified Six Sigma Green Belt Handbook" that is used for ASQ certification training. Successful completion of this specialization (along with the purchase and study of the highly-recommended handbook) should better prepare the learner to sit for a professional certification in Six Sigma. However, successful professional certification is not guaranteed, as every learner is unique.
