    I am running a LSS program where we are training green belts and black belts within different business units.  A quesiton has been posed:
    If a certified belt is no longer exectuting LSS projects, what do they need to do in order to keep there certification “active”. 
    Does anyone have a program to keep belts certified as they move from LSS project execution back into business specific activities?



    We require inactive belts to lead a project and submit for recertification annually.  Everyone must continue to complete projects for coaching and susequent recertification.



    Hello Mark,There is an underlying issue which seems hidden in your question. Did your organization create belts to transform and control business processes or as a badge of honor?If the belts exist to transform and control business processes, then those belts should be finding opportunities within their “business specific activities”. If those opportunities they find are not business critical, then they should be lending their talent to where the constraint exists elsewhere in the organization.If the organization cannot absorb and handle change management for more projects; then you don’t need more belts, but need an adjusted managing process to utilize the tools (belts) you have developed.My humble opinion.
