We recommend this training course for any Lean Six Sigma Green Belt holder looking to enhance their knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and manage Lean Six Sigma projects.
Delegates must possess the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification in order to attend this training course. The Green Belt qualification can be obtained with The Knowledge Academy.
We will provide you with some reading to do before the course begins. We also recommend revising the Yellow and Green course material in order to restore prior knowledge. You will also need a laptop with a copy of Minitab 16 or later installed. A 30 day version is available, so details of how to install this will feature in your pre-course package. You must ensure that you download Minitab at the correct time so that you have it for the duration of the course. Please note that Minitab is not currently compatible with Macs.
This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade course is designed for Green Belt certification holders who wish to upgrade to the Black Belt. The Black Belt is a highly sought-after certification, which demonstrates Lean Six Sigma expertise and individual ability to control and guide business development projects using the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) model.
This Black Belt Upgrade training course focuses on the practical application of Lean Six Sigma that delegates can implement to their own businesses without much adjustment. Elements such as analysis, statistical training, and management techniques will be addressed in order to ensure delegates can govern Lean Six Sigma projects.
The difference between Black and Green Belts is the devotion that Black Belts possess for Lean Six Sigma. Consequently, they tend to work with Lean Six Sigma methodologies each day within their own improvement projects, whereas Green Belts collaborate with such methods on a more irregular basis.
The following is included in this Lean Six Sigma training course:
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Examination
As this course covers all Yellow, Green, and Black Belts, delegates need to sit three examinations in order to gain the Black Belt qualification. Delegates will learn everything they need to pass the Black Belt assessment first time. The exams are listed below.
Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Exam
Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Exam
The Black Belt exam is worth 50% of a delegate's overall mark for Black Belt certification. There will also be a case study exercise in the classroom that is worth the other 50% of the overall mark. This consists of 10 exercises plus a final case study based on a given scenario.
