This 3-week hands-on workshop provides participants with the detailed methodology and tools of Lean Six Sigma to lead their organization toward “World Class” status. The workshop combines the proven and powerful elements of both traditional Lean and traditional Six Sigma into a blended approach. The emphasis is on 1) gaining process and product knowledge with critical thinking 2) reducing variability and non-value added activities and 3) developing leaders in the organization who are focused on enhancing customer value, decreasing defect rates and wasted efforts, reducing cost and cycle time, and generating business growth and breakthrough improvements. The Lean Six Sigma methodology is taught with a “Keep It Simple Statistically” (KISS) approach and makes use of many in-class examples, simulations, and hands-on exercises to ensure that participants have a practical, working knowledge of the tools.
Participants in the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training learn the details of the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology and tools for achieving better, faster, and lower cost products and processes. Participants learn to select and apply the right tools for a particular problem or question.
As a part of the course, it is expected that participants come with a project to work on so that they can immediately apply their knowledge and realize return on investment on a specific business issue. The course is taught in three one-week sessions, with each week of training separated by a month. The time between training weeks is designed to facilitate project work. Our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training uses the “Present/Practice/Apply/Review” strategy. That is, we present tools and methods, give participants the opportunity to practice them in class, and then apply the tools to their project, and finally review the results of the application to the projects.

Participants are expected to have management sponsorship and a project selected prior to attending the training. Projects will be worked on over the duration of the course and should be completed within a reasonable timeframe, typically near the end of the training but no longer than 6 months after the start of the training.
Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop computer to class with Excel 2000(or above) so that they can install the supplied software and practice using it during many in-class exercises. A basic working knowledge of Windows and Excel is helpful. Basic math and algebra skills are also desirable.
