Lean Six Sigma:
Black Belt Certification Course

Lean Six Sigma is a widely-used methodical approach to improve business performance by reducing waste and increasing efficiency. With today’s companies facing continually rising costs and increasing competition, Lean Six Sigma certified professionals have become increasingly desirable in Operations/ Supply Chain Management roles.

This is the last of the three-part USC Marshall Lean Six Sigma Certification Program. Green Belt certification is required for this Black Belt certification course.

Course Overview

This Black Belt course will build on your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt knowledge, and give you full mastery for leading Lean Six Sigma projects. This course will teach advanced techniques of Design for Lean Six Sigma through a process known as DMADV (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify), and also different statistical methods to make data-driven decisions. You will also learn how to identify and prioritize the needs of different stakeholders of the processes, and design your LSS project for continual improvement.

The above concepts will be practiced through a hands-on approach, on a real “live” project of your choosing that you would bring to this course. At the end of this course, you would have successfully executed a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt improvement on your chosen project.

You will receive a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification upon completion of this course.

This course will run every Saturday for 8 weeks, from late July to early September.

Program details will be posted at a later date.
