Six Sigma Black Belt Training

What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma is a data-driven improvement philosophy that views all activities within an organization as processes whose inputs can be controlled to effect significant improvements in process outputs. Six Sigma uses a rigorous and systematic methodology known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) and several qualitative and quantitative tools for driving process, product, and service improvements aimed at reducing defects and variation. In this Six Sigma Black Belt training course, we explore each of these methodologies.

Companies across various industries are striving to become faster and more responsive to customers, achieve near-perfect quality, and operate using world-class cost structures to gain this competitive advantage, businesses are seeking out individuals with exceptional Six Sigma Black Belt experience.

Why does Six Sigma yield such impressive results?

What makes Black Belt Six Sigma so successful? To answer this question, our Six Sigma Black Belt training dives deeper into the framework of DMAIC – Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. This is a widely-used quality improvement methodology in Black Belt Six Sigma that helps businesses make better decisions and implement process improvement to yield lasting change.

Define Phase

The Define phase is almost identical to the popular corporate practice of recognizing frequent issues of a given business process, with the purpose being to devise practical solutions for tackling those problems. Just like an entrepreneur, Black Belts look to strengthen the delivery infrastructure of their business by closely examining all its key and minor aspects, a thorough review is necessary for improvement.

Measure Phase

When examining the define phase within lean Six Sigma, it becomes clear that the Measure phase is akin to a business owner’s evaluation of how an identified issue may detrimentally affect their company. For any entrepreneur (and Black Belt), this is critical, as it allows them to turn their attention to the areas that face the greatest risk of disruption. Only then can they begin overcoming these issues and paving a smoother path toward success.

Analyze Phase

The analysis stage is much like the entrepreneur’s attempt at examining all potential solutions and rigorously testing each one to find out which alternative will yield optimal results. This step allows Black Belts to come up with effective strategies for achieving their desired goal. As any successful entrepreneur would prefer, the Analyze phase dictates that only those alternatives with high potential and cost-efficiency be selected for implementation.

Improve Phase

Just as the entrepreneur desires, this Improve phase concentrates on providing projects within a set period of time and expenditure. This is no different from their labor in guaranteeing that selected tasks are executed appropriately. By utilizing this stage, resources can be saved while still expediting achievement of goals with precision.

Control Phase

Like an entrepreneur who is interested in monitoring the progress of their improvement projects, assessing whether or not these initiatives are meeting expectations is a central component to the Control phase. Taking necessary corrective measures when results do not align with predetermined goals should also be taken into account during this stage – just as any savvy business owner would want to do.

What will you learn?
