  • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt courses are among the only courses in the world that can truly prove ROI.

Increase morale amongst your workforce and improve staff retention.

  • Your Black Belts will be more confident, enthusiastic and capable.

  • Successful projects not only help reduce or avoid costs to make the company successful, but typically result in happier customers, and happier customers make for happier staff!
  • Savings/cost avoidance realised through completion of Lean Six Sigma projects gives your organisation more capital to spend on staff rewards and further training (and staff consider training a perk!).

What will I learn?

This Black Belt course is the highest practical level of training you can take in Lean Six Sigma, and it provides an internationally recognised qualification. Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are in high demand due to their extensive knowledge and understanding of process improvement.

It is also the ONLY course which covers both technical Lean and Six Sigma skills, tools and techniques as well as acceptance skills and approaches to ensure solutions stick in your organisation.

The overall ‘eLearning Black Belt Course’ from 100pceffective experience has been a good one. The course has a great balanced mix of audio/visual and practical activities in lots of LEAN Six Sigma fields. You have the ability to set your own pace naturally within the timeframe of the course. The support and communication from 100pceffective has been second to none. I would recommend the course on your LEAN Six Sigma Journey.
