Lean Six Sigma is a unique set of methodologies and tools specially tailored for process improvements that is used in many industries to enhance efficiency, productivity, customer satisfaction and profitability. It aims to improve the quality of output by identifying causes of defects and minimizing variability. With increase in competition today, every organization new or old needs to constantly improve in both the development of products and/or in the delivery of services.
Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are typically full time project leads that undertake organization wide projects or potential entrepreneurs/business owners who need to anticipate implementation issues within a business plan.
In many organizations, Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are also instrumental in building a culture of continuous improvement, removing of silos and facilitating change. They do so often through leading projects; setting up of project pipelines and programme framework; training and coaching of Green Belts, leaders and other employees; and sharing and promoting of best practices.
This course follows a practical learning approach:
- In addition to classroom learning via lectures, case studies, activities, examples, discussions, and online test, the course requires execution of a real Lean Six Sigma project of acceptable level of complexity and scale at a Black Belt level, to be assessed for full certification.
- The curriculum builds on pre-existing Lean Six Sigma Green Belt curriculum and requires the participants to be a proficient Green Belt. This reduces the amount of time needed for a full Black Belt curriculum which typically stretches over 18-20 full days. Again, this model is helpful for professionals who cannot afford taking extended leave from work.
- The classes consist of six sessions, each comprising of two nights and a Saturday, spanning across three months at a pace of two sessions per month. This is helpful for professionals who cannot afford taking extended leave from work.
