Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Description

Lean Six Sigma's significant transformation is only ever attainable through the deep knowledge, comprehension, support and active presence of the tutor and the top technical and methodological expert of Lean Six Sigma. In the Lean Six Sigma methodology, these experts are known as Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt.
Lean Six Sigma is the fusion of two systems of continuous improvement and optimization processes: Lean and Six Sigma. They share several principles: focusing on providing value to the customer, waste removal, the use of techniques and creation of improvement groups, among others. Lean Six Sigma combines the advantages of these two improvement systems and avoids the individual drawbacks.
The Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt training provides you with a certificate when ending the course successfully.

Enjoy our advantages:

- You will be able to start at any moment.
- Free access to Minitab y Quality Companion.
- The certification is incluided in the price.


Thanks to the Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt certificate, participants will acquire the knowledge and experience that will allow them to create and properly manage complex Lean Six Sigma projects.
