Six Sigma deployments demand major investments of time, effort, and money on behalf of an organization. Organizations need to exercise due diligence to determine if Six Sigma is the appropriate approach to employ, or if a less demanding quality and process improvement approach is better suited to meeting their needs. Success of these improvement projects largely depends upon the Six Sigma teams that understand the project goals. Six Sigma Black Belts lead these teams and must have the qualities and qualifications required to deliver the expected results. This course deals with the key considerations around the selection of kaizen and Six Sigma projects. It also explores Black Belt roles and the associated Black Belt qualifications needed for leading Six Sigma teams to realize their project goals. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
