Course description

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Black Belts are at the core of every Six Sigma implementation. Motorola used the term “Black Belt” to describe “an individual who has developed a synergistic proficiency between his or her technical discipline and the Six Sigma strategies, tactics, and tools. These individuals will continually work towards institutionalizing the effective use of these tools throughout the corporation, its clients, and its suppliers.”
