The Certified Six Sigma Black Belt is a professional who can explain Six Sigma philosophies and principles to their reports, including supporting systems and tools. A Black Belt should demonstrate team leadership, understand team dynamics and assign team member roles and responsibilities.
Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They have basic knowledge of Lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify non-value-added elements and activities and are able to use specific tools.
Six Sigma professionals exist at multiple levels – each has a different role to play. The Black Belt leads problem-solving projects, trains and coaches project teams.
So, it’s clear to see that Six Sigma provides much of the structure for running a manufacturing facility in a clean, lean and seldom mean manner. Become a Six Sigma Black Belt!
