Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

The Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) is a professional who can explain Six Sigma philosophies and principles, including supporting systems and tools. A Black Belt should demonstrate team leadership, understand team dynamics, and assign team member roles and responsibilities. Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They have basic knowledge of lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify nonvalue-added elements and activities and are able to use specific tools.

The objective of the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training is to give exposure to the participants on global best practices in Lean and Six Sigma.  The training will have enough depth for participants to help them adapt to global practices on usage of advanced tools and techniques.

The ASQ Lean Six Sigma Training teaches the principles of Six Sigma for process improvement/variation reduction. Aside from the methodology of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC), the course would cover the fundamentals of Statistics, Qualitative, Quantitative, Graphical and Statistical tools for process improvement and variation reduction. Participants will also be exposed to lots of application-based exercises, using Minitab, during the program.
