Black Belt

Duration: Ten (10) days spread over 5 months x 2-day events

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and certification program will equip participants with the technical competencies, team leadership skills and change management skills to lead Lean Six Sigma projects using the Lean Principles and DMAIC (Define Measure Analyse Improve Control) methodology. The 10-day program will cover the most contemporary process improvement practices adopted by leading organisations and proponents of Lean Sigma Transformation in manufacturing, service, healthcare, financial, public sector as well as many other industries.

Business success in any organisation requires vision, products and services that add value, processes that are efficient, people who are competent and a culture that supports the behaviours of improvement and development. This course will address all these aspects with a significant focus on the cultural change and the role of the Lean Sigma Black Belt in the facilitation, change management and application of the tools to change a culture.

The role of the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is a business improvement professional that is able to support the Lean and Six Sigma implementation journey in organisations, including assisting systems and tools implementation. They possess the ability to mentor multiple teams, monitor performance of all activities and engage leadership support to deliver genuine business improvements.

This programme will run over 5 months and will focus heavily on the application of the tools rather than their academic understanding.

The course covers the phases of a typical Lean Transformation utilising Lean Principles and Six Sigma: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control. The methodology follows a structured sequence of problem solving techniques and cultural change management to arrive at a solution. Statistics aid in the decision-making process and help to validate the success of changes. Cultural facilitation embeds that change.

Green Belt

The Six Sigma Green Belt is a specially trained team member within his or her function-specific area of the organisation. This focus allows the Green Belt to work on small, carefully defined Six Sigma projects, which require less than a Black Belt’s full-time commitment. Our Green Belt Training provides participants with strong problem solving skills, with an emphasis on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) model.

The Green Belt has two primary tasks: first, to help successfully deploy Six Sigma techniques, and second, to lead small-scale improvement projects within their respective areas. In a support role, Green Belts can do much of the data-gathering analysis in support of a Black Belt project. On the Green Belt course you will learn how to use many of the Six Sigma problem-solving methods and statistical tools to contribute to the success of your organisation.

On this four-day Six Sigma Green Belt course participants will complete a practical business improvement project and their assessment will be based on the successful completion of this assignment.
