Black Belt

"Excellent trainers with a lot of experience in the field"- Wilma van den Brink

A PowerPoint presentation is replaced by case simulations, post it notes, practical examples and interaction with other participants. This way of learning will help with the usage of Lean and Six Sigma in a practical way, which will help you with fast and long lasting results.

What is a Black Belt?

Black Belts are change agents and upcoming leaders within the organisation. Black Belts are being helped by the current leaders or other executives.

...Change agents within Lean Six Sigma are mostly considered as Black Belts ...

Black Belts are full time project managers and process improvers with a few years of experience. DMAIC is a worldwide known method that is used as the structure of the Black Belt training.

Lean or Lean Six Sigma course?


"Lean and Six Sigma used to be two seperate worlds, but that is not the case anymore"

Our vision is that it is compulsory for continuous improvement, to often use both Lean and Six Sigma. This is the reason why there will be a focus on the Six Sigma approach, even within the Lean course. The Six Sigma Green Belt course will be more focused on the analytical part of Six Sigma.
