Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification
Master the skills to lead complex improvement projects.
Why Choose Our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification?
A Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is a professional with an extensive understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology, adept at leading complex projects across diverse industries. Typically working in a full-time capacity, Black Belts spearhead improvement projects to eliminate waste, minimize variation, and enhance process efficiency and quality.
Black Belts possess a thorough knowledge of the DMAIC methodology – Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. Their training enables them to identify problems, gather data, assess processes, pinpoint root causes, and implement sustainable solutions. Furthermore, Black Belts are proficient in project management, employing tools and techniques to coordinate team efforts and achieve project objectives.
Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are skilled in using statistical tools and software for data analysis and result interpretation. They are well-versed in standard Six Sigma tools like process mapping, Pareto charts, cause-and-effect diagrams, and statistical process control charts to detect process variation and diminish defects.
Black Belts are also experts in applying Lean principles such as value stream mapping, 5S, and Kaizen to streamline processes, eradicate waste, and enhance flow. They boast advanced problem-solving skills and are trained in techniques like Design of Experiments (DOE), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Root Cause Analysis (RCA).
Lean Six Sigma Black Belts at the Pyzdek Institute complete 180 hours of training (including homework assignments), pass a proctored, comprehensive, timed exam, and present a real-world project to a Pyzdek Institute certified Master Black Belt or Thomas Pyzdek himself.
