What You Will Learn

As teachers, mentors, project leaders and change agents, master black belts (MBBs) play a critical role in driving quantifiable improvements throughout their organizations. There is no option, therefore, but to prepare future MBBs in a challenging and rigorous manner so they can perform effectively in their new roles.

MBB candidates in this course are already certified black belts, so they’ve learned and successfully applied their change leadership and problem-solving skills within the context of the DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyse-Improve-Control) methodology. To reach the next level as certified MBBs, candidates in this program will:

  • Focus on the advanced tools and facilitation skills needed to lead change within their organizations
  • Complete at least 20 days of advanced coursework, choosing approximately four electives from this list of options
  • Achieve a 90% or higher exam grade on BMGI’s black belt exams
  • Complete three applied projects, one of which involves mentoring green belts or black belts or a large-scale project that significantly impacts a primary metric
  • Submit a paper to a periodical or deliver a public session derived from a paper
  • Be nominated for MBB status by a 360-degree team. Three letters of nomination are required: one from a superior, one from a peer and one from an individual the candidate has mentored

Master Black Belts serve as internal consultants in organizations and enable the internalization and institutionalization of your Six Sigma deployment. BMGI’s Master Black Belt program is the most comprehensive program in the industry.

How You Will Learn

You’ll begin your Master Black Belt training course of study and application by getting paired with a Master BMGI Black Belt consultant who would coach you through every step of the certification process—help you select your electives, pass your exams, write your paper and complete your three projects.

With guidance from your instructor, you have the freedom to chart your own path for Master Black Belt training, setting timelines and deadlines that work for you—and choosing the right courses for filling your unique knowledge and application gaps.

If you’re extremely well versed in the analytics of problem solving and need more people skills, or want to tighten your grasp of creative thinking tools, you can sign up for these Master Black Belt training courses. If you are well versed in Lean or Six Sigma, you can take electives that bring you up to expert status in one or the other domains.

If you have the opportunity to engage in and complete your three projects in a short period of time, the program will accommodate this, as it will accommodate a more extended time frame for project completion.

The program is highly flexible in this and other regards. Some elective courses, for instance, allow you to learn remotely via webcam so you can interact with the class and instructors as if you were all together in the same place. Other courses require your physical presence because of their experiential nature.

In any case, your classroom time is reinforced with access to BMGI’s state-of-the-art eLearning system, giving you interactive flash-based tutorials and sample quizzes to test your knowledge on virtually any topic. You can also access downloadable templates, tools and case studies as you make the transition from candidate to full-fledged Master Black Belt.
