Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

– Advanced change management

As a Black Belt, you have a key role in your organization's improvement efforts. You do all kinds of improvement projects and ensures that identified and resolved improvements are made. An important part is to train and coach project teams and providing support to management.

Black Belt training will give you the understanding of how Lean Six Sigma should be implemented. You get a deep knowledge of the different statistical methodologies and how they are used. You are also trained to lead change and manage group dynamics. After training you can greatly contribute to your organization's performance

For who?

For those of you who will lead and coach change management

Training layout

The training consists of four blocks each of five days. The training blends theory briefings with discussions and practical exercises. Emphasis is placed on practical application, including a project from the partitipants home organization.

The open training will be conducted in English.  Even customized inhouse company specific training in English or Swedish can be implemented.

We strive to implement parts of the last two weeks on a host organization. Learn more about what it can mean for you!

Black Belt

Six Sigma Black Belt 20 days

  • "Study pace was high, theory mixed with practical exercise in a good way. Clear examples to follow in the training and in the presentation material."
  • "A good and well planned training that really covers all. The workshop performed on site in an exterior company was especially successful as you got real life experience."
  • "Many trainings offer statistical theory but the hardest thing with statistics is to understand how to use the tools to make things happen in reality. This was taught in this training which was pedagogic and implementation driven. "
  • "The training was a good mixture of theory and practical exercises. The teacher held a high knowledge level in the subject, not only theoretically but he also dealt with some real examples and demonstrated how theory could be applied in practical life."
  • "An appreciated part was the visit to the production plant which included an exercise in one of the tools that was taught in class. I recommend SBTI’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training as I have had much benefit from the training in my daily work."
  • "The training gives a good foundation and understanding for Lean Six Sigma, how you should work as an organization with DMAIC for problem solving and process development for both industry and service sectors."

Fee and trainingmaterial - Black Belt

 76 800 SEK. All prices are excluding VAT.

The fee includes training, project mentoring and certification costs. Documentation, course materials, refreshments and lunch are included. Lean Six Sigma Pocket Guide is included. Travel and accommodations are not included. Laptop should be brought. We will use Minitabs software during training.

Training diploma and certification

After completing training with at least 90% attendance, you get a diploma.

To become fully certified Black Belt it is required, in addition to completing the training, a completed project where Lean Six Sigma methods and tools are applied satisfactory. Project Certification is based on two aspects; delivered business value and use of Lean Six Sigma methodology & tools. In the evenings during the training week, we can carry out projectmentoring.

You must also pass a knowledge test.

Training attendance + completed project+knowledge test = Black Belt certificate
