Advanced Tools for Six Sigma

Advanced Tools training is designed to provide Green Belts, Black Belts and Master Black Belts with a mastery of DMAIC tools. This is an advanced class that is focused on helping participants learn how to apply Six Sigma techniques in unique situations. While Six Sigma came from manufacturing environment, many companies have gained tremendous benefit in service oriented processes. This course will also provide practitioners with advanced tools to tackle problems in the transactional environment.

Advanced Tools training is a critical component to helping students take their knowledge and skill set of DMAIC to master’s level. This course is one of the electives of BMGI’s Master Black Belt program.

Course Description

The course agenda integrates both a review of traditional Six Sigma tools along with invaluable advanced topics that are always asked about, but almost never taught. In this hands-on class, participants will achieve a level of proficiency and understanding that will take them well beyond the peers and enable them to solve previously unsolvable problems. Tools such as non-parametric testing, covariate DOE, and others are introduced for the first time.

Master Black Belt Development

A comprehensive education for well-rounded master practitioners.

Master Black Belts drive the evolution of a company’s Six Sigma deployment. They are teachers, mentors, project leaders and implementation guides who oversee activities that help companies become self-sufficient in the planning and execution of a Six Sigma management system.

Developing dynamic and capable Master Black Belts involves much more than teaching advanced statistical techniques. Master Black Belts also need to learn how to become powerful leaders and change agents.

BMGI’s Master Black Belt program is designed to help practitioners transition into the Master Black Belt role with ease by providing them the tools they need to succeed. It is for this reason that BMGI’s Master Black Development program is known as one of the most challenging and rewarding certification programs in the industry.

Course Description

BMGI’s program builds Master Black Belts that have the skills they need to perform each of the four primary roles – the Teacher, the Coach, the Project Leader and the Champion. The road to BMGI MBB certification has eight requirements. Four of the requirements are one-week class electives, chosen from a group of available classes. These courses are designed to build a mix of both hard and soft skills. Additional requirements for certification include completion of three projects, high scores on exams, co-teaching, and paper submission. Candidates become certified when all of the requirements are met. (Participants should note that before starting BMGI’s Master Black Belt Program all candidates must complete Black Belt Certification.)

Certification Requirements

In addition to participating in training classes, candidates are required to undergo evaluation on a number of levels designed to improve leadership skills, technical skills and teaching capabilities.
