Black Belt

Following is the brief outline of the 10 day SSBB training program-

Who Should Attend

  • Trained Six Sigma Black Belts are expected to be able to run individual projects themselves, and to lead larger projects using Green Belts as a resource. Candidates should have good communication skills, experience of team working to improve processes or solve problems, good IT skills and ideally some basic statistical knowledge. This programme is designed to ensure that Black Belts are provided with a good understanding of, and the ability to apply the most widely used tools and techniques. All candidates are required to bring a laptop computer to the course, equipped with the software listed below.

  • Candidates are strongly advised to bring with them a welldefined project to work on as they go through the training. This can then be used as one of
