The Black Belt course is designed for personnel who have a problem-solving need in day-to-day management and operations and need a structured approach to problem solving. This 15- day modular course includes a practical introduction and then training on the full range of Six Sigma and Lean tools.

This program includes training on the advanced statistical tools required to execute the full range of Six Sigma DMAIC projects. Practical exercises and simulations are incorporated to provide a hands-on experience. The Black Belt course modules are:

  • Lean Six Sigma Foundation (YB + GB)
  • Change Management
  • Statistics 1: Data Measurement Techniques
  • Statistics 2: Data Analysis Techniques
  • Black Belt Advanced
  • Personnel who have a problem-solving need in day-to-day management and operations and need a structured approach to problem solving.
  • Leaders considering embarking on a Lean and/or Six Sigma strategy.
  • Departments or organizations that have been charged with implementation but do not have a good understanding of Lean and/or Six Sigma.
  • Managers concerned with the status quo and interested in investigating options for productivity improvement, performance enhancement and organizational change.
  • Get delegates to be able to work as leaders of Six Sigma DMAIC projects upon completion of this course.
  • Be pioneers of change and improvement.
