A master at work

The role of a Master Black Belt combines Lean Six Sigma with strategy and (program) management. As a continuous improvement leader, you plot the Continuous Improvement route. Using your expertise, you render advice to the board or deployment manager, acting as senior consultant when new project need to be aligned with the company vision. Using your prior knowledge of Lean Six Sigma, you select the projects which contribute most to organizational KPI’s, and make sure to avoid the pitfalls that others still have to learn about. When it comes down to it, you know how to manage both change and expectations. In short, a Master Black Belt imposes order and provides a true-north for all other Lean Six Sigma initiatives that follow.

A high-level sparring partner

As a Master Black Belt, you are invaluable to organizations. Because you know how to clarify necessity through the creation of burning platforms. With all stakeholders aware of the need to improve, the next step is for you to choose the right projects. Every project is aligned with the needs of other leaders in the organization. You safeguard progress and scope, coaching other Black Belts where necessary. All while keeping the management team up-to-date on the most important events and results. It’s this central position that makes you such a valuable asset and a driving force behind even the most complex themes and initiatives.

Your way of studying

Custom programme

The agenda of the Master Black Belt programme differs per student. It’s based on what you still need to achieve, amount of checks that are required (such as tollgate reviews or progress reviews ), or even possible issues you’ve run into that you want help with. Together with your trainer, you create a planning that works for everyone involved with your project. But the duration, starting date and other details are best discussed personally, so don’t hesitate to reach out to our Master Black Belts for further advice.



About the Master Black Belt Programme

The Master Black Belt programme differs from our regular courses; the content of each programme is tailored to suit the individual participant. From the start, it’s not just about expanding your Lean Six Sigma insights. It’s also about growing your vision as a leader of the methodology. The end-goal of this programme is to offer you everything you need to start as a true Lean Six Sigma leader. However, the steps to get there depend on your experience, understanding and the opportunities that present themselves to you.

One of the key aspects of being a Master Black Belt is being able to steer towards the true north and most important goals on the horizon. This requires you to maintain oversight and choose projects carefully, as well as making the reasoning behind your choices apparent. Communication is more important than ever.

This is where our programme plays its part. With the help of your personal Master Black Belt coach, you explore all of these leadership topics that organizations expect an expert change agent to be familiar with.

These topics range from creating high-level roadmaps and managing financial outcomes, to training other Lean Six Sigma professionals. You classes will also include topics like how to influence people positively and act like a leader, because your work will often require strong change management skills and having to garner support for new projects. But rest assured, our coaches will help you with everything. We have trained Black Belts from every type of industry and level of expertise, and we know how to get you started, and more importantly, how to help you rise to the top of the Lean Six Sigma echelons.

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer any evening or weekend training?

The Lean Six Sigma Company strives to organize its courses training during normal working hours.

This is a conscious choice in order to avoid interfering with the private lives of our students and to get students used to the idea of working with Lean Six Sigma during typical working hours, and continue this habit once they complete the training.

However, some local exceptions apply. Please reach out to to the helpdesk in your region if you have any questions

Do you offer training in other languages?

More information about our worldwide presence can be found on our worldmap page, here you will find in which countries we are currently active and offer training.

What is the right training for me?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. If you would prefer to employ Lean Six Sigma on a part-time basis, for example alongside of other work, the Green Belt training would be the best choice. If it’s your aim to work with Continuous Improvement and Lean Six Sigma on a full-time basis, then the Black Belt training would be the right pick. The same applies to Lean and our Lean Practitioner and Lean Leader training, respectively.
