Course Introduction

This Body of Knowledge™ is a group of a wide-ranging set of subjects that are intended to be statements of the universally and commonly accepted, minimum abilities and core aptitudes required from professionals who are Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certified. This Standard is recognized as a relevant and practical version of the knowledge that is expected of Lean Six Sigma Black Belt professionals. It consists of the DMAIC procedures, which are broken down into sub-categories consisting of individual subject matter topics.

  • Learn to manage excess waste and increase organisations productivity

  • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is recognized by major brands in all the industries

  • Not limited to just one specific industry

  • Certified Lean Six Sigma Instructors to teach the course

Key Learning Points




Tutor Support


The delegates who wish to acquire this certification must already hold a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification. In order to get the certification, the delegates must come with a project that they are supposed to complete after the course is over.

What Will You Learn

The delegates will have become familiar with the following concepts of Lean Six Sigma after completing the Black Belt course:

  • Define and Plan Projects for improvement including the developing charters
  • Determining and managing stakeholder requirements
  • Understand and improve the various qualitative and quantitative tools that are used to gauge and analyze business process
  • Use  lean principles to determine customer value, determine value streams, understand flow develop pull systems and ensure perfection
  • Analyze, quantify and choose the most suitable solutions
  • Control business processes and understand process change through the use of SPC and change management skills
  • Manage Green Belt projects and resources

Who should take this course

Those professionals who want to improve their skills and have experience in managing Green Belt Projects can sit for the course where they will learn to manage more difficult and complex projects.


Those delegates who wish to sit for the exam they must have taken some training from an accredited institute, or trainer. The Maven training is one of the best training providers. The delegates who wish to sit for the exam must also have a real-world Lean Six Sigma project experience. Once the delegates complete their certification successfully, they receive Black Belt Certification issued by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification™, which happens to be the only independent third-party Certification Association within the Lean Six Sigma Industry.


The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Exam takes place during the second Friday afternoon at the end of the course. The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Exam contains 150 questions. It a closed book proctored exam that lasts for 4-hours.
