Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Why to become a Six Sigma Black Belt?

Black Belts are application experts and work projects within the business. They are project team Leaders, working full time to solve problems. Black Belts work on projects that are relatively complex and require significant focus to resolve, projects that usually have a high financial return of the company.

Main Training content

  • Full Factorial Experiments, Fractional Factorial Experiments.

5.0 Control Phase

  • Lean Controls (Poka-Yoke (Mistake Proofing), Kanban, Control Methods for 5S)
  • Statistical Process Control (SPC): (I-MR Chart, Xbar-R Chart, U/P U Chart, NP Chart, Center Line & Control Limit Calculations);
  • Six Sigma Control Plans (Elements of the Control Plan, Cost Benefit Analysis).


The training is based upon the Experimental Learning Principles (“learning by doing”). The course will be delivered in an interactive manner; all the participants will be involved in the process. The learning content will be transmitted through presentations (the theoretical background) and especially through specific exercises and case studies (related to the professional activity of the participants).


  • Concept presentations;
  • Case studies;
  • Practical exercises;
  • Group discussions and group analysis of real-life situations;
  • Q&A;
  • Best practice tips and tricks;
  • Recommendations for long-term development;
  • Action Plans.
