Master Black Belts play a critical role in deployment of a successful Lean Six Sigma Initiative. This course helps develop three key competencies that every Master Black Belt needs:
1. Ability to instruct others in LSS tools, methods, and concepts.
2. Ability to coach other belts in order to help them achive faster, better results on projects.
3. Deeper understanding and competency in basic and advanced technical concepts and tools.

Through this application based class, increase your confidence, enhance credibility, and solidify project, technical, instruction, and coaching abilitities. Participants will:
a) Develop a deeper understanding of basic and advanced Lean Six Sigma tools and methods through extensive technical case studies, 'deep dives', and exercises; this is a very "hands-on" course
b) Gain knowledge and understand methods for successfully coaching and mentoring black belts, green belts, and others.
c) Understand how to prepare for training and learn tips for being an effective trainer
d) Become more confident as an instructor through practice and feedback in a safe environment
e) Gain an understanding of adult learning principles and how they can be effectively applied in training
f) Learn how to set-up, conduct, debrief and enhance debrief and enhancement of simulations and supplement "new" exercises

as a Master Black Belt is a combination of training combined with demonstrated application. Certificates include George Group/Accenture name. world class leaaders and the people who wrote the books on Lean Six Sigma. Two certificates are provided:
Master Black Belt Certificate of Training - upon successfully taking training and passing final exam
Master Black Belt Certification - full MBB certification upon meeting project and other requirements

Mandatory Qualifications and Expectations
1. Completed Black Belt training and preferably certification or equivalent
2. Participants are expected to have basic Black Belt skills such as team faciliation, meeting management, presentation abilities, and influencing others successfully
3. Participants are expected to have a working knowledge of Minitab for typical Black belt graphical and statistical tools. While participants will get extensive Minitab review and training, those with limited Minitab experience should refresh prior to class and in between sessions so at the end of training you will have "mastered" Minitab
4. While methods will be refreshed, participants are expected to have basic competency in Black Belt Lean and Six Sigma tools
