Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and certification for services and industry

An interactive Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training to discover how Lean management refers to process optimization and waste elimination; and how Six Sigma projects are connected to quality improvement and client satisfaction.

This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt workshop provides you with an effective course + exam of what you, as effective team member or consultant, are required to perform as a Certified Black Belt. Training objectives:

  • Use Lean Management principles to identify waste in order to design faster and responsive processes
  • Use Six Sigma to improve customer satisfaction by delivering quality on a consistent basis
  • Prepare you to deal with operational excellence, process management, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction issues
  • Lead DMAIC projects in full autonomy
  • Solve in a scientific and sustainable way complex problems related to products
    or services quality (projects « 6 sigma »)
  • Apply advanced measurement system analysis and statistical tools to determine the cause of a complex problem and take the right decision
  • Optimize and make products and services more reliable
  • Put under statistical control production and service processes and monitor the continuous improvement of quality

After this 12-day program you will pass the certification exam and act like a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt member.

 Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training Program

This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training is a structured and disciplined management method based on process improvement targeting quality. We will teach you a method that aims at reducing the risk of going outside of the client’s expectations by delivering perfect products and services on a consistent basis. It will focus on all types of processes owing to organization complexity and process internalization.

You can divide the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training into 3 parts. The lean management part (3 days) of the training refers to value preservation focusing on eliminating non-value added (waste) resources or activities. The Six Sigma part is a set of techniques and tools used for process improvement. The Black Belt Six Sigma specialization part is focused on specific services and industry tools and methodologies.

Part 1 – Lean Management (Business Game) – 3 days

Kicking off with a little story about Lean principles and TPS (Toyota Production System) shows you the Eastern way of thinking in improving processes. The two days are focused on a Lego Serious Play Production Plant Business Game which will help you to understand Lean tools like the Value Stream Map. During this part you will understand value preservation focusing on eliminating non-value added resources or activities (waste) and a set of techniques and tools used for process improvement.

Part 1 :

  • Introduction to DMAIC
  • Lean vs Six Sigma
  • Experimentation on a process implemented in the classroom (« serious game »)
  • The ‘3 Voices’ (Voice of the Client, Voice of Business, Voice of Collaborators)
  • Measurement of performance (KPI’s): effectiveness (quality) vs efficiency
  • Little’s Law
  • Value Stream Mapping (VSM)
  • 7+1 wastes
  • Calculation of the Process Cycle Efficiency (PCE)
  • Takt time and Cycle time
  • Load chart
  • Theory of Constraints (bottlenecks analysis)

Part 2 :

  • Process improvement workshop on the process implemented in the classroom
  • Line balancing and debottlenecking
  • Basic principles of process reengineering
  • Calculation of resources staffing
  • One piece continuous flow
  • Pull production and Kanban (introduction)
  • Poka-Yoke (introduction)
  • 5S (introduction)
  • SMED (introduction)
  • Calculation of the Overal Process Efficiency (OPE)
  • Kaizen Event
  • Toyota Way


Part 2 – Six Sigma and the organization – 9 days

Lean Six Sigma Belgium_DMAIC
