Course description

The Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Certification program, exclusively developed by the Management and Strategy Institute, offers an advanced and comprehensive curriculum aimed at providing students with an in-depth understanding of how to lead and manage multiple Six Sigma teams to achieve outstanding results. Master Black Belts represent the pinnacle of expertise within the Six Sigma framework and are typically fully dedicated to Six Sigma initiatives, devoting 100% of their time and energy to this methodology. Their primary responsibilities encompass the execution of Six Sigma projects, the facilitation of training programs, and the supervision of Black Belts who are actively engaged in separate projects.

Master Black Belts play a pivotal role in organizations with multiple concurrent Six Sigma projects. These seasoned professionals serve as technical leaders, guiding and overseeing the successful implementation of Six Sigma projects across various functional areas. For instance, within a manufacturing company, a Master Black Belt might simultaneously oversee a Lean Six Sigma project aimed at reducing waste within the production line and a separate Kaizen project focused on streamlining the accounts receivable process in the accounting department. In this scenario, each project would have a dedicated Black Belt, while the Master Black Belt assumes the role of a technical advisor, ensuring that both projects progress efficiently and achieve their intended goals.

When not actively engaged in project management, Master Black Belts channel their expertise and experience into training others within their organization. They serve as mentors and instructors, imparting Six Sigma knowledge and skills to individuals at all levels of the organization. These training programs are tailored to the specific needs of the industry and organization, providing a customized learning experience that equips employees with the tools and methodologies necessary to drive continuous improvement and process optimization.

The Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Certification program empowers individuals to become strategic leaders and champions of Six Sigma excellence. By mastering the intricacies of project management, training, and technical guidance, Master Black Belts become indispensable assets to organizations striving for operational excellence and sustained performance improvement across the board.

Who should attend?

It is recommended that you have an understanding of Six Sigma and Lean Management principles before taking the Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Certification Program.  Students typically hold a Six Sigma Black Belt certification from MSI or another institute before taking the Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Certification Program.
