Six Sigma Black Belt


Six Sigma Black Belt Exam Prep For ASQ

 About Six Sigma  Six Sigma is a business management strategy originally developed by Motorola and populated by General Electric in 80's Six  Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying  and removing the causes of defects (errors) in manufacturing and  business processes using a set of quality management methods. It creates  a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Master  Black Belt","Black Belts", "Green Belts","Yellow Belt" etc.) who are  experts in applying these methods to solve problems. Each Six Sigma  project follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial  targets. In  recent years practitioners have intensively applied Six Sigma methods  in both manufacturing and service sectors to achieve the goals of  improving products or services quality, increase customer satisfaction,  saving money and continuous process improvement.​ 

Course Description:This  course provides a comprehensive cover of Six Sigma techniques that  enable the participants to grasp the essential skills to perform the  role of a Six Sigma Black Belt. Through the coaching and in-class  exercises, the candidates receive practical experience from a Certified  Six Sigma Black Belt who holds the practitioners hand-in-hand to  demonstrate their knowledge and capabilities on how to identify and  implement value added Six Sigma projects in their organizations.  After  completing this course, practitioners will learn the critical elements  of acquiring the Six Sigma black belt certification.
