Course Title
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training
Instructional Method
Army Public Health Center
Four-week course that familiarizes students with the principles, practices and tools of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) to maximize the effectiveness/efficiency of business processes and improve customer satisfaction. Topics covered include an overview of LSS, as well as all aspects of traditional Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) methodology and tools. Successful graduates will be able to identify non-value-added activities and lead teams tackling more complex projects. The Black Belt curriculum accommodates students with no prior LSS experience. There is generally a three-week break between each week of training so that candidates can work on their assigned LSS projects.
