Lean Six Sigma - Black Belt
- Course Overview
In Lean Six Sigma organisations, it's the Black Belts who lead the organisation's improvement processes and provide support to both the "operational" Green Belts and Senior Management on Lean Six Sigma and business improvement issues.
With their higher levels of knowledge and skill, Black Belts can tackle issues that have stubbornly resisted resolution by Green Belts. They can also mentor and support Green Belt teams and take the strategic perspective required to align improvement efforts to strategic priorities.
This five-day program will provide you with the advanced capability required to achieve accreditation at the Black Belt level.

- Benefits for Your Organisation
While Lean Six Sigma is equally effective in all industries, most examples illustrating its success are typically drawn from manufacturing applications, and programs addressing the needs of this industry are already well represented in the marketplace.
For this reason, the focus of this program will be more on the needs of process and service organisations, and will provide you with a strong appreciation of how Lean Six Sigma can be successfully applied in these settings.
