Learning, application & business advantage
Centre for Learning’s Six Sigma Black Belt program combines public workshops with a significant improvement project. The program is spread over six months to integrate learning, application and achieving improvement.
Six workshop modules extend over a period of 6 months. During this time, participants define and carry out a project that will provide a genuine benefit to their organisation.
Each module provides the concepts and tools needed to complete and implement the project successfully, following the DMAIC sequence.
At the beginning of each workshop participants present their work for review and guidance. The criteria for achieving Black Belt status are explained and detailed feedback provided as necessary.
In this way the momentum and direction of the project is maintained, and participants are able to apply the theoretical and practical lessons with confidence.
