Six Sigma Black Belt

Lean techniques eliminate wasteful activities to increase the flow of value, while Six Sigma is a disciplined method for meeting customers’ expectations and eliminating defects in any process, together, both methods enable a culture of continuous learning and improvement


Participants will become proficient in all of the analytical tools necessary to define, measure, analyze, improve, implement and control improvement projects. Participants must have a windows based computer running Microsoft Office and Minitab ( we can provide a 30 days trial) for the training program. Participants require previous knowledge equivalent to a Green Belt certification level to take this training.


Program duration: 15 days
The proposed project must be defined before the training starts

10 Days of Training

3 days or project advisory (coaching)

2 preparation sessions (web meeting) for IIE certification exam


Participants will learn:

  • Develop lean process flows
  • Implement lean in your organization
  • Reduce cycle time by minimizing wait times
  • Analyze process data using comprehensive statistical methods
  • Control the process to ensure that improvements are used
  • Define an opportunity for improving customer satisfaction
  • Implement the recommended improvements
  • Improve existing processes by reducing variation
