Lean Six Sigma Process

Aimed at the advanced practitioner, your accelerated Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification will teach you to generate business improvements in areas such as: customer satisfaction, service delivery, cost control, process performance, & new product introduction.

This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification is delivered by PEEC, an IASSC accredited Lean Six Sigma training provider, meaning you will benefit from accredited instructors and curriculum. During the 5 day course you will be introduced to both Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, meaning that activities focused around the speed and quality of business processes are addressed.

Your accelerated course meets the ISO 18404 standard applicable to all PEEC programs. Delivered in line with the International Standards for Lean Six Sigma, as described in the ISO 13053-1 and ISO 13053-2 standard, you will attain an internationally recognised certification as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.

Traditional Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training lasts 10 days. This normally includes a month between each module, meaning that it can take up to two months to complete. This is compared to five days at Firebrand. Plus, our course contains case studies and exercises - it is not just theory.

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand Six Sigma and Lean and have hands-on application of the Green Belt tool-kit applied to real-life problems.
  • Establish meaningful business metrics that align process performance with financial performance.
  • Have a detailed view of Cycle Time Reduction, Process Variation and Risk Management.
  • Prepare an actionable plan for identifying, scoping and chartering process improvement projects and selecting the right people to execute those projects.

  • Understand how an enhanced value stream can illuminate areas of opportunity through the application of Lean principles to reduce cycle time.
  • Apply a practical understanding of how to lead strategic change, manage a team and transfer Lean Six Sigma knowledge to develop robust breakthrough products, services and processes that perform flawlessly on launch.
  • Prepare an actionable plan for supporting your organisation, and tools to build continuous improvement capability that deliver substantial and meaningful business results.
