Online Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Workshops

Lead large, multi-functional projects

Why join?

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt workshop prepares participants to be improvement project team leaders as well as statistical experts who can work on multiple improvement projects at a time. Juran certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belts are on-site implementation experts with the ability to:

1. Develop, coach, and lead cross-functional process improvement teams.
2. Mentor and advise management on prioritizing, planning and launching Lean Six Sigma projects.
3. Use, teach, and disseminate Lean Six Sigma tools and methods to Green Belts and team members.

As part of the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training, Juran’s instructor will review, critique, and advise the Black Belt candidates between online training sessions. To be a Juran-certified Black Belt, candidates must successfully complete improvement projects approved by the Juran Instructor. A significant return on investment (at least $150,000 in financial impact) has been the norm for Juran Lean Six Sigma Black Belts who successfully complete Juran assisted projects.

Juran’s blend of online learning and live webinar training contains self-paced instructional modules, as well as reading assignments designed to reinforce what has been learned in the module.

the importance of coaching

(If certification option is selected)
The success or failure of all improvement projects is largely based on the effectiveness or shortcomings of their project management. We consider effective and robust project management to be absolutely critical to the success of an improvement project.

While training is essential for obtaining the knowledge around Lean Six Sigma, coaching makes sure that the learning is applied in the correct way throughout your project. We believe that project coaching highly increases the probability of getting a project completed and in a timely manner.

Typical problems our coaches help combat after training:

Project Selection – Individuals have a hard time scoping their project and determining what impact it can have on their organization.
Disengagement – Individuals lose steam on their project due to getting “stuck” and need help pushing their project forward.
Tool Selection – There are various tools used in the DMAIC process, and individuals typically have a difficult time selecting which one to use and when.
Accountability – Coaches provide a summary after each session with concerns, next steps, and achievements to keep the project on track, and to setup success for the next session.

Juran recommends eight hours of coaching per project. More hours are available for purchase if needed.
