    Would you like to learn how to guide and implement the improvement projects but already successfully completed the Green Belt training? Then the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt to Black Belt training will be the right choice for you.

    Target Audience

    You have completed your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training and gained experience in optimising processes as a Green Belt project manager. Now, you are ready for the next phase of your Lean Six Sigma knowledge and you want to develop into a Black Belt. This is possible with our Green to Black Belt training in which both your knowledge of statistics and your Lean Six Sigma techniques will be expanded and developed within 8 days. During this training, you will also learn how to coach Green Belts at your organisation and how to support the others with statistics.

    Length of the course

    This training takes 8 days and it is being divided into 4 blocks, which has total lessons time of 64 hours.

    The training times are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Also, you are going to prepare for each block, therefore you should reserve approximately 4 hours of preparation per block, so 16 hours in total. This is about putting the learned theory into practice as much as possible.

    If you choose to take an exam, the exam follows the training, and it will take 3 hours. Exam preparation time varies per participant. From our experiences, we recommend for the most of participants approximately 20 hours of preparation. This exam includes both the Green Belt and the Green Belt to Black Belt materials.


    Like our other trainings, the Green to Black Belt training combines theory and practical approach. After completing the training, you will be able to implement independently Lean Six Sigma project improvements within your organisation and to guide improvement programs based on the Green Belts. Briefly, an intensive and practical training, which you can apply directly in your own situation.

    The outline of the 8-day training is as following:

    Assignment preparation: “Portfolio Lean Six Sigma Green Belt”

    Block 1:

    • Masterclass Policy Deployment; This deepening module deals with program management and Lean Six Sigma Policy Deployments. The main question is: “How do we roll out process improvement in organizations and what is getting involved?”. This block involves a step-by-step improvement program for the organisation. We’re dealing with techniques such as Scrum, Lean Leadership, OGSM and the change map.

    Assignment preparation: “Make a change map for your own organisation”

    Block 2:

    • Masterclass Advanced Six Sigma; During this block, the participants learn how to analyse data according to the Six Sigma method. This includes hypothesis testing, process performance analysis and measurement system analysis. No woolly statistics but concrete examples and implementations. Next to it, we’re also working with Minitab.

    Assignment preparation: “Data collection and analysis”

    Block 3:

    • Masterclass Advanced Lean; Lean offers many techniques to analyse and improve even the most difficult processes. We will discuss it during this module, and how the processes can be analysed using Value Stream Mapping.

    Assignment preparation: ” Future State Value Stream Map for an own process”

    Block 4:

    • Masterclass Black Belt; As a Black Belt you will implement Green Belts projects. Supervising projects or coaching are required skills but one can be learned. Based on the Kata coaching, we will teach our participants to coach Green Belts.

    During the last part of this block, we will ensure adequate exam preparation.


    There are several routes to go from Green Belt to Black Belt.

    We offer three variants:

    • The 10-day variant Lean Agile Six Sigma Black Belt is our most complete training and we recommend it for most participants. In 10 days, a deepening of the Lean Agile and Six Sigma method follows. We spend a lot of time on the participant’s own experiences and projects.
    • The 8-day Lean Agile Black Belt, in which you skip the two optional Six Sigma days. In addition to Lean, we pay a lot of attention to Scrum and Agile management in the process.
    • The 8-day Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, in which you skip the two optional Lean Agile days. We pay a lot of attention to analyzing the data with regard to statistics and the use of Minitab.

    Certificate Green Belt to Black Belt

    After this training you will receive a certificate of participation. To be fully certified as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt you need to meet the following requirements:

    1. The certificate of participation: you have obtained this by completing the training.
    2. The theory exam: you have succesfully demonstrated a knowledge of the theory by taking an exam. All components of the training are being tested. This exam includes the multiple-choice questions and open questions.

    It was really interesting to look at fundamental concepts from both Lean and Six Sigma through a very practical lens, as opposed to the theoretical approach I was trained to do. Ward’s professional experience enabled him to guide us on realizing critical insights. Totally recommend!
