In Lean Six Sigma organisations, it is the Black Belts who lead the organisation's improvement processes and provide support to both the "operational" Green Belts and Senior Management on Lean Six Sigma and Business Improvement issues.

With their higher levels of knowledge and skills Black Belts can tackle issues that have stubbornly resisted resolution by Green Belts, mentor and support Green Belt teams and take the strategic perspective required to align improvement efforts to strategic priorities.

This Lean Six Sigma: Black Belt training course provides participants with the level of knowledge and skill required to achieve accreditation at the Black Belt level.

This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training course is designed to equip organisations with a team of improvement experts who can provide leadership and support for improvement initiatives within the organisation, communicate effectively with senior management and support Green Belts to improve Green Belt team effectiveness.

The Black Belt program requires potential participants to have completed previous training in Lean Six Sigma to the Green Belt level and had experience working on Green Belt level improvement projects.


The objectives of this program are to provide participants with a working knowledge of:

  • Quality Function Deployment methodology for customer focus and innovation;
  • Measurement Systems Analysis techniques, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Chi-squared test for independence;
  • Regression Analysis methodologies, including linear, multiple and logistic regression;
  • Design for Six Sigma Methodology and Techniques;
  • Design of Experiment methodologies, including “the cube”, orthogonal arrays and Taguchi methods.
  • Awareness of management processes, management consulting and change management techniques.


The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Program introduces participants to concepts, methodologies, tools and techniques on which Lean Six Sigma is based to the Black Belt level. 

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are an organisation’s improvement experts and leaders. They bring to project teams a greater depth of business experience and technical expertise in Lean Six Sigma methodology to provide support to Green Belts but also act in their own right to attack the tough problems – the chronic issues that have plagued the company over the years.

Black Belts play major strategic role in liaising with senior management to ensure alignment of improvement activities with strategy and an operational role supporting Green Belts. They have been trained in the full scope of the Lean Six Sigma body of knowledge including the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) process for improvement and the DMADV Design for Lean Six Sigma process.

The best candidates for Black Belt training are typically employees at middle to higher levels who are personally committed to the success of their organisations and to operational excellence as a path to achieving such success.  All will have already been Green Belts and had significant enough experience with improvement projects to feel "passionate" about improvement and to want to get involved more deeply and more extensively in supporting improvement in their organisations.

Good candidates for Black Belt training may include:

  • Senior Managers/Executive responsible for leading improvement and culture change initiatives within the organisation, and who will have responsibility for other Black Belts and building an improvement culture;
  • Middle Managers, Front Line Managers and Team Leaders who wish to dedicate some or all of their career to operational excellence and improvement as an area of focus.
  • Operational level employees who are interested in improvement and in being involved in the process of improvement, who have already operated as Green Belts and have stood out as high achievers.
Training methodology

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program is a hands-on, stimulating learning experience.

The program will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment.

To ensure the concepts introduced during the program are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.

The Black Belt program is a single 5-day workshop and assume all participants have previously completed training to the Green Belt level.

*Note: This program will make extensive use of the Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet software and the Analysis ToolPak Add-in supplied with Excel from Day 2 onwards. It has been our experience that the learning value of the training experience is maximised if there are laptop computers available for participants to use during the program and that no more than two participants have to share a computer.

In addition, more advanced statistical analysis software and templates will be provided to support some of the workshop methodologies.


The Black Belt program builds on the knowledge and skills gained through the Yellow and Green Belt programs, and takes these to an advanced level by providing participants with a working knowledge of advanced statistical methods relevant to supporting the analysis required on complex improvement opportunities.

The Black Belt program also builds knowledge and skills in necessary organisational issues such as management processes and change management which underpin successful implementation.
