Six Sigma Black Belt

Prerequisite: Six Sigma Green Belt or equivalent Green Belt from an accredited training organization.

Workshop Description:
Learn the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) strategy for developing and achieving better, faster, and lower cost products and processes. The intended audience is anyone who desires to become a practitioner of the Six Sigma methodology and tool set and who will be leading Six Sigma projects within an organization. They learn how to handle non-normal data analysis and Design-of-Experiments for advanced process control. Black Belts have more statistical tools available to them to make more in-depth analysis of data. They can lead larger teams and be a technical resource for Green Belts in the organization. Coursework consists of 11 days of classroom training after Green Belt Training with a mix of lecture and hands-on simulations to reinforce the learning. Classes are held 2 days at a time every 3 weeks to reduce time out of the office.

The training makes use of many in-class examples, simulations, and hands-on exercises with a variety of processes to ensure that participants have a practical, working knowledge of the tools. As a part of the course, it is expected that participants come with a project to work on so that they can immediately apply their knowledge and realize return on investment on a specific business issue.
