#### What is Lean Six Sigma Black Belt ?

ExcelR offers three days of **Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification and training** for both individuals and corporate employees. Lean Six Sigma certification training is delivered by experienced and one of the best Lean Six Sigma trainers in the industry.

Training will be driven by Minitab & practical exposure is assured with a classroom project. Starting with the introduction to Lean methodology, training will go on to explain the advanced concepts of Six Sigma. Underlying idea is that Lean and Six Sigma cannot be seen in isolation. Both these “body of quality” complement each other and hence the name of the program is **Lean Six Sigma**.

Participants will be exposed to various Lean Six Sigma tools used in DMAIC (Design, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology. A brief explanation about DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) methodologies such as DMADV (Design, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify) and IDOV (Identify, Design, Optimize, Validate) will be provided so that participants are clear about the differences between DMAIC and DFSS.

You will be certified by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification (IASSC) through PEOPLECERT, TUV or ASQ. ExcelR is an Accredited TUV (German based certification body) training partner.

#### Features:

- Four days classroom training or 15 days online training or both for one cost
- Mini-tab statistical tool training along with Lean Six Sigma training
- Hard copy of training material
- Mock exams at the end of each topic to get the thoughts ignited
- Exam at the end of training to get certified
- PDUs to claim towards PMI credentials

#### Overview of Lean Six Sigma Certification Training:

This program is aimed to provide both theory and practice-oriented inputs for the participants to enable them to implement Lean Six Sigma projects in their organizations. The training is focused on professionals across all domains including IT/ITES, Civil Engineering/ Real Estate, Manufacturing, Electrical and Electronics industries and is designed to suit their needs.

While discussing Lean Six Sigma Certification, the participants can enroll in four credentials depending upon their experience level – Yellow Belt, Green Belt, Black Belt, Master Black Belt. Each credential requires students to prepare for training in different ways starting with Yellow belt catering to the fresher’s, to Master Black Belt for the advanced practitioners. Successful Lean Six Sigma implementations require a company-wide Lean Six Sigma culture, with awareness and buy-in from all employees in an organization.
