Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and certification in Brussels​

Discover everything you need to successfully launch your Lean Six Sigma Black Belt project.

An interactive Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training to discover how Lean management refers to process optimization and waste elimination; and how Six Sigma is connected to quality improvement and client satisfaction. Our easy to understand, hands-on and fun learning methods will make it enjoyable to learn Lean Six Sigma.

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:

  • Learn how to improve business flow in Kaizen Event mode
  • Learn to eliminate waste, streamline operations and prevent malfunctions
  • Learn how to improve a process for the benefit of all stakeholders (customer, worker, owner)
  • Understand the philosophy, principles and tools of Lean Management
  • Learn how to deploy a Lean Six Sigma program
  • Learn how to identify and define the problem to be solved and the improvement objective of the project
  • Learn how to scientifically and sustainably solve simple quality (statistical) problems
  • Learn how to scientifically and sustainably solve complex statistical problems, including reducing the variability in the quality characteristics of products and services
  • Learn to statistically control manufacturing and service processes and drive continuous quality improvement
  • Learn how to achieve a higher (optimal) level of operational performance (sigma > 4) by identifying residual levers of improvement through a deep understanding of statistical decision making

After this 9-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.

Lean Management (Business Game)

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.
