Become a Master Black Belt, and help connect your senior leadership team to the change team. You'll learn how to drive strategic change programmes across your organisation. Plus get the management skills needed to support, coach and mentor Green and Black Belts.

The Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt certification will help you to develop your leadership and process improvement skills, in any industry or organisation. The course will give you an advanced Lean Six Sigma toolkit, suitable for handling the most complex assignments.

Who is the Master Black Belt for?

The Master Black Belt certification is aimed at two types of people. Maybe you need to learn how to efficiently run complex projects, on a large scale? Or do you want to lead the development of Six Sigma across your organisation, through coaching other Green Belts and Black Belts? Maybe it's both!

This Master Black Belt course has been developed for leaders with a high technical ability. You'll learn how to use a statistical tool kit that lets you roll-out Six Sigma across your business.
