Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
Get the benefits of lean and Six Sigma with this course. Encompassing the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology with integrated lean content, you will learn how to use both systems together for even better bottom-line results.
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training will bring both Green and Black belt participants together ensuring consistent Green Belt level knowledge in the principles and practices of Lean and Six Sigma. Black Belt participants will return for a deeper dive into the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies and bring the participant to the level of Black Belt, able to lead project teams to achieve breakthrough business improvements for their organizations. The Lean Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application that can be applied in service-based, transactional, production-based, and healthcare environments and is focused on achieving significant business results and increased customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma Black Belt virtual training consists of multiple sessions spread over several months. In the virtual setting there will be frequent breakouts sessions as well as some independent work outside of the virtual classroom. This course will use Minitab statistical software.
Each participant is required to have their own current version of Minitab statistical software.

Detailed Course DescriptionThe Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application that is focused on achieving significant financial results and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology can lead to a significant reduction—and in many cases, elimination—of defects, process waste, and out-of-control processes, which translate into dramatic business gains.
This Black Belt course provides a comprehensive and disciplined model for improvement. Every participant will learn how to meet his or her company’s business objectives through the recognized DMAIC process. Attendees will learn how to direct Lean Six Sigma projects and obtain the maximum improvements from the learned techniques and skills. This course is conducted in four five-day sessions with four weeks between sessions.
Learned skills are practiced and applied through individual and team exercises, as well as to the individual projects. Participants will be able to apply the concepts learned in the class to a business improvement project assigned to them by their management sponsor.
