About the course Green Belt to Black Belt
From your background as a Green Belt, you have the necessary base to grow into a Black Belt. You are familiar with techniques such as statistics and measurement system analysis that are further explored in the Green Belt to Black Belt course. You will be trained to be a professional Black Belt and you can take the lead within projects and implement them according to the DfSS methodology.
The focus on customer demand and the proactive way of collecting and evaluating data, leads to better products and an up-to-date development process for your organization. This has a significant impact on product design, quality, reliability, operating results and customer satisfaction.
To increase the effectiveness of the learning process of the Six Sigma methodology and associated tools, the participants will preferably carry out an initial project in sync with the course.
