Lots of people are aware of Lean Six Sigma training, but many people are unsure or unclear about how this training can benefit themselves and their organisation.
The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification is possibly the most sought after in the world of improvement. That is because of the benefits that having a fully trained Lean Six Sigma Black Belt or Black Belts within your organisation brings.
The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course takes delegates from a standing start and moves them right the way through the Lean Six Sigma improvement methodology, equipping them with the skills to solve all types of business problems. The core Green Belt skills are taught with the addition of even greater change capability in the form of both technical and leadership skills required to deliver successful change.
Here are our top 5 benefits for training yourself or your staff to a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt level:
- Deliver an Improvement Project during the training
When they complete our course – they need to also deliver a real project to gain certification. We deliver this course over a period of months and your colleagues will work on their project in between training days. These projects also ensure that the minimum benefit to your business is far greater than the cost of the course. In our experience – you can expect a course to deliver 5 to 10 times the benefit to your organisation. Our £20,000 Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course will deliver benefits between £100,000 and £200,000 – just from the project they complete on the course – never mind all the future improvements they’ll be able to work on!
- Improve Leadership capabilities
In our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course, we provide a focus on Leadership capabilities. We’ve found this to be a unique element of our course that tends to be missing from other Black Belt courses. Develop Leadership skills is a sure way to help support your business performance and growth and that’s why our Black Belt course majors on this element.
- Solve more complex problems
There are some business challenges that even your Green Belts are not equipped to solve. That may be because a greater understanding and skills around some of the more technical Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques is required or that an improved awareness of how to go about change is needed. Either way our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course will equip delegates with the ability to tackle any type of business problem
- Service orientated
There are lots of Lean Six Sigma Black Belt courses out there and they come in all different shapes and sizes. Often you will find a course for a Black Belt will cover lots of technical tools and techniques which are relevant for manufacturing but not for service. We focus on helping delegates learn the methods required to solve the problems they will most likely encounter. This ensures that the outcome of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is the right shape for the business they will be working within. This allows us to deliver the training within a 10 day period as we focus on value add for the delegates
- Create a continuous improvement culture
When you have a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt(s) in your organisation you are making a statement of intent that improvement is critical to this business and by having the capability provided by a Black Belt you are better able to drive an improvement culture within your organisation. Lean Six Sigma Black Belts can communicate at all levels of the business, coach others in method and undertake effective intervention to create real sustainable change that will benefit both your customers and your business.
There are many more benefits to undertaking a Black Belt course such as:
- Supports career progression
- Opportunity to link in with other Black Belts and see the problems they are solving to enable even greater learning opportunities
- improve your stakeholder management and communication skills
- and many more…
If you’re looking to improve the capability of your improvement function or your own capability – invest in a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Course. At the very least, they will deliver projects during our training that are greater than the cost of the training – guaranteeing your return on investment – even if they never go on to use the skills further.
Focusing on developing your employees and improving your organisation can never be anything other than a great thing for your organisation.
