Six Sigma Black Belt

Black Belts are considered the leaders within a Six Sigma team. Part of their duty is to oversee what other members (Green and Yellow Belts) have accomplished and keep all team members on track to reach goals and deadlines. Their primary task is project management; they are the individuals who define a Six Sigma project and its scope. It is their task to set goals and timelines for the project as well as constantly update executives and stakeholders of the current status of the business. Additionally, they often exhibit excellent communication skills and take on the role of the ‘change agent’ within their organization.

Since they are given a lot of responsibility within a Six Sigma Team, it is a requirement for these individuals to undergo training and earn sufficient experience in the form of leading Six Sigma Projects. These experts are well rounded in their knowledge of financial and statistical analysis, project management, and Six Sigma Tools. This knowledge and experience enables them to perform a wider range of tasks. Six Sigma Black Belts are often sought after and are highly employable because of these characteristics.

All our Six Sigma training and certifications are accredited to Council for Six Sigma Certification, Ohio, USA.
