Course description

The Six Sigma Black Belt Certification with HR specialization is designed to give students a robust grasp of Six Sigma principles while equipping them with the essential skills to effectively lead and communicate within Six Sigma teams from a Human Resources perspective. Six Sigma is a data-driven methodology that centers around measuring and quantifying the impact brought about by improvement projects. Its success hinges on garnering support and commitment from all levels of the organization, transcending personal viewpoints and opinions.

Within the realm of Six Sigma projects, HR professionals play a pivotal role, particularly in the initial stages, as they often hold key responsibilities in shaping the project's organizational framework. The meticulous assembly of the right team can substantially influence the project's overall success. HR professionals collaborate closely with the Six Sigma Project Champion to identify and select Black Belts and Green Belts, drawing upon their intimate knowledge of the organization's talent pool. Additionally, HR professionals are instrumental in crafting job descriptions for each team member and may be involved in devising retention and training programs tailored to the project's objectives.

Given that HR professionals dedicate a significant portion of their time to workforce planning and employment-related activities, they emerge as invaluable resources during the nascent phases of Six Sigma projects. Black Belts and Green Belts, who often juggle multiple responsibilities within the organization, rely on HR expertise to align the broader workforce needs with the demands of the quality improvement project. This intricate balancing act necessitates the involvement of skilled HR professionals who can collaboratively engage with project stakeholders.

The Six Sigma Black Belt in HR Certification program encompasses a comprehensive curriculum that not only delves into the operational roles and integration requirements that HR professionals or Human Resource Managers (HRMs) provide within an organization to bolster Six Sigma initiatives but also equips HR with the tools and knowledge necessary to drive its own Six Sigma projects. This holistic approach ensures that HR professionals are well-prepared to contribute to organizational success on multiple fronts, seamlessly bridging the gap between HR and Six Sigma methodologies.

We also offer a Six Sigma Black Belt Certification and Six Sigma Lean Black Belt Certification without the HR component for those who do not want their certification to have an HR (Human Resources) concentration.
