Black Belt Curriculum
Lean Six Sigma uses the analogy of belt colors (most often associated with martial arts) to designate competence in applying lean six sigma tools to problem solving and process improvement. A Black Belt is usually considered the highest level expert in Lean Six Sigma.
A Black Belt has in-depth problem solving skills and extensive experience using statistical manufacturing techniques to improve quality and hold the gains. Black Belts are considered expert problem-solvers within an organization and are often called upon to tackle chronic or acute quality issues as well as serving as a resource or facilitator to problem-solving teams. Black Belts may be full-time problem solvers moving to problem areas within an organization as needed or they can serve in another capacity, but be called upon when a problem flares up.
In addition to years of experience solving problems and guiding problem-solving teams, Black Belts have extensive training in problem-solving and process improvement techniques. Their skills enable them to work on a wide variety of issues even if they are not familiar with the core technology.
