SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT

 

Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are highly trained professionals in Quality improvement methodology, who are able to apply Six Sigma principles to business processes and lead a quality improvement initiative. They are well versed in the Six Sigma Methodology and can skilfully lead and assume full responsibility for large scale quality improvement projects. They are competent in the use of six Sigma tools and techniques and standard principles. Black belts typically demonstrate their skills through significant financial improvement and customer benefits on multiple projects. Black belts may be utilised as team leaders responsible for measuring, analysing, improving, and controlling key processes that influence customer satisfaction and/or productivity growth.
