LEAN + SIX SIGMA = Two Powerful Initiatives, One Integrated Program
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt consists of four one-week long sessions held over a period of four months (one week per month).
Dramatically improve cost, quality, and delivery by combining the strengths of two powerful business process improvement initiatives through the systematic approach of the TMAC Lean Six Sigma (LSS) program. Integrated into the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control (DMAIC) project management structure, Lean + Six Sigma results are impactful, robust, and sustainable.
Expect to be immersed in a hybrid learning environment of instruction, group exercises, hands-on simulations, teach-backs, project presentations and review of industry case studies. Experienced instructors emphasize practical application of tools and share lessons learned from hundreds of completed projects.
Learning doesn't stop once training is over. Participants can access TMAC LSS Master Black Belts before, during and after training for coaching to rapidly apply what they learn.
Engage with more than 35 LSS tools.
Earn your LSS BB certification. Complete the course. Apply what you have learned on a project according to the TMAC certification guidelines. Become certified.
TMAC Black Belts experience a median financial impact of $150,000 per year. Registration includes course material including guide books, tool booklets, and binders for in-class materials.
