A Quick Glance

Today all organisations focus on providing maximum customer satisfaction and in this reducing the delivery time plays an important part. This is possible if some technique for streamlining is used. The so called Lean Six Sigma is one such method which optimizes organisational processes by removing the waste steps in the making of a product or service.

Pearce Mayfield believes in providing the delegates with the courses that help them and their organisation. This course will help the delegates to design and develop their projects in accordance with the Lean Six Sigma fundamentals.

    Pearce Mayfield offers Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course at an affordable price

A Green Belt certification is required by the delegates who wish to take up this exam. Also, the candidate must come with a Green Belt project that they are expected to complete to acquire the certification.

Those professionals who wish to achieve a higher rank than a Green Belt professional can take this course. During the course, the delegates will update themselves to far more complex and challenging projects than they had in Green Belt.


Key Learning Points




Tutor Support

After the completion of the course a delegate will know how to:

  • Define and Plan projects
  • Determine and manage stakeholder’s requirements
  • Learn and improve upon the various tools used for gauging and analysing business processes.
  • Using Lean principles, determine customer value and value streams.
  • Also, the delegates learn the flow develop pull system to ensure perfection.
  • Analyse, Quantify and Choose the best available solutions
  • Understand Process Change

Course Overview

Lean is a concept that intends at reducing the organisational waste while Six Sigma reduces processes variations and helps to link the processes together tightly.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is the third course inline of the Lean Six Sigma courses the other two being Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt and the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. A Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certified professional leads a group of Green Belt professional.

When the delegates complete the course, they obtain a certification from IASSC – International Association for Six Sigma Certification™ - which is the only third party association within Lean Six Sigma approved for certification purposes.


The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Exam duration is 4-hours , 150 questions and a closed book examination. The exam is held at the end of the training on a Friday afternoon.
