About the Master Black Belt Masterclass.

Organizational development and continuous improvement have become crucial in modern companies. Organizations no longer compete on processes themselves, but on the ability to continually improve them. Companies initiate improvement programs such as Six Sigma, Lean and Design for Reliability. However it is challenging to deploy such programs successfully. A Master Black Belt plays a key role in turning improvement programs into a success.  

The Master Black Belt is a course in practical competencies in three areas: the design of an improvement program, managing the improvement effort, and theoretical understanding of product and process improvement. The course aims to develop skills, and topics are offered in the form of interactive workshops based on video material and role play. Theory is brought to life by case-based teaching methods. 

Course: Master Black Belt.

Outcome
