About the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is an essential qualification and training course for anyone working in a managerial position, particularly those implementing change, transforming a company or growing their career.

As a qualified Black Belt you’ll work smarter, be capable of solving complex problems permanently, and increase your chances of promotion by being able to improve processes and reduce costs within your organisation. The average return on investment for this course is 7:1, and the process allows you to prove it. What other training courses can say that?

Unlike many other Lean Six Sigma Black Belt courses on the market, 100% Effective’s course follows the best practice approach to certification. This means you’ll get hands-on, practical experience running successful projects before you can certify, translating to greater success when you’re back at work. And you won’t be on your own, you’ll get your own dedicated Master Black Belt to support you through your training and beyond.

So why else should you chose 100% Effective?

  • Full certification is included in the price.
  • We assign you a dedicated highly-experienced Master Black Belt, through your training and beyond.
  • We provide lifetime support. If you have a problem now, or in five years, our dedicated team will try to help.
  • We’ll give you a FREE online Yellow Belt and a FREE online Champion Belt to assign to colleagues to make sure you’re supported from within, as well as by our expert coaches
  • See below for even more reasons to train with us.

Our course teaches change management as an equally important part of any project as the technical Lean Six Sigma skills. Our training reflects this balancing act and promotes the importance of change management to successful project development.

Achieve an incredible return on investment for your training.

  • Through the certification process and Lean Six Sigma project work, Lean Six Sigma training offers arguably the most easily proven return on investment of any training courses available.
  • The average saving by a Black Belt is £50k per project and certified Black Belts complete (on average) three projects per year, giving a projected return on investment for the training course of over 30:1 in the first year.
  • Lean Six Sigma Black Belts, as part of their projects, must have financial improvements/gains signed off by finance, meaning return on investment is easily verified.

Increase morale amongst your workforce and improve staff retention.

  • Whilst Black Belts are solving problems, they are improving processes and therefore often reducing workload or streamlining things for others across the business, improving morale.
  • Staff at all levels feel empowered to make improvements, making their own and colleagues’ lives easier.
  • 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!).

Develop future leaders and change agents.

  • Staff who are invested in, and who play a significant part in the success and growth of the company, are more likely to want to stay!
  • Black Belts will challenge the status quo, and influence change within your organisation.
  • Many Black Belts go on to be promoted into more senior positions due to visibility in the organisation during Lean Six Sigma projects, and being equipped with a wide variety of hard and soft skills.

Stay ahead of the competition.

    • It’s now a given that large (and small) companies are running or starting some kind of continuous improvement programme. If you don’t start solving problems and improving your business now, you may be left behind.
    • Many tenders now require companies to prove how they reduce costs or improve service. Black Belts do this as the core of their role, and will generate evidence you can use in your bids, helping you to win additional business.
    • In a growth phase? Lean Six Sigma Black Belts will tackle all kinds of problems, solving them and improving processes so that they are efficient before being scaled or duplicated.

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’s important to obtain a recognisable qualification for Lean Six Sigma, just like an MBA from a reputable provider is worth far more than one from a cheap alternative.

It 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. As such, our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt courses will provide you with a Lean Six Sigma and Change Management qualification.

For a full breakdown of the topics covered in the course, download the brochure. The content covers all of the body of knowledge required by IASSC, ASQ and BQF as well as change, influencing and acceptance skills.

Certifying as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

It is essential that anyone looking to certify as a Black Belt does so in the correct way, so that their knowledge is properly tested and ability verified. Our certification process follows industry best practice as outlined below, so if you’re comparing our courses to others, make sure they offer the same.

  1. Complete training including Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques, as well as skills needed to ensure solutions are accepted.
  2. Take an exam (open book requiring a 70% pass mark). This proves you understand the theory, and will highlight any areas you may need to revise. You can take the exam multiple times, but we have a first time pass rate of over 90%.
  3. Apply your learning to two problems using the DMAIC approach. This proves you can actually solve problems, successfully collect and analyse data, use the right tools at the right time, influence, negotiate and manage change, as well as implement solutions saving time and money. This is the most important part of certification, just passing the exam is not enough.
  4. Present your project to a Master Black Belt, who will assess it to ensure you followed the best approach (if amendments or additions are required, feedback will be provided and resubmission encouraged).
  5. We will then issue you with a ‘Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt’ Certificate with verification details, 170 CPD points to prove professional learning, and a ‘Certified Change Management’ certificate.

Our courses are accredited by IASSC and the body of knowledge we teach covers all topics required to achieve certification through ASQ, and BQF too.

The ability to undertake a course such as Lean Six Sigma Black Belt online has enabled me to learn to a far greater depth, at my own pace, and transfer that learning into the workplace more effectively. Far more so than a traditional face to face course.
