Deployment of Six Sigma, Lean, or another continuous improvement methodology demands major investments of time, effort, and money on behalf of an organization. Organizations need to exercise due diligence to determine if Six Sigma or Lean is the appropriate methodology to employ, or perhaps a less demanding quality and process improvement approach is better suited to meet their needs. Having decided on the methodology, improvement teams need to determine screening criteria for the selection of most appropriate improvement projects. Success of these projects largely depends upon the contribution of a variety of Six Sigma stakeholders. As a key Six Sigma stakeholder, Black Belts often lead improvement teams and their skills and qualifications are critical to teams' ability to deliver the expected results. This course deals with the key considerations around the selection of Six Sigma, Lean, and continuous improvement projects. It also explores roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders and qualifications needed for Black Belts for leading Six Sigma teams. 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.
