Group of Participants
Project leaders, quality managers, experts or executives

  • from the service or production sector
  • with a degree as a Six Sigma Green Belt as well as relevant professional experience.

Six Sigma Black Belt conveys approaches to quality management as a holistic set of methods and as a philosophy, serving to achieve measurable results such as e.g. the reduction of process costs as well as the shortening of throughput times for companies. This course is based on Green Belt knowledge, extending the methods along the DMAIC phase model to lead project teams, expanding statistics knowledge and offering approaches on how to establish Six Sigma in the company.

The course consists of two presence modules of four days each and a project phase that takes place between the two modules. In the two attendance phases, knowledge is built on the basis of lectures, group work and case levels and practiced with the statistics software Minitab on the institute's own computers. During the practical project phase, the participants will carry out an independent Six Sigma improvement project in their company.
