Immersed in an environment that is increasingly competitive and globalized, it seems essential to continuously undertake projects that lead to the improvement of processes and products so that the organization maintains its competitiveness in a framework of sustainable growth. Lean Six Sigma is the improved fusion of two proven scientific methodologies called Lean and Six Sigma that, independently, aim to maximize productivity. But together as a single methodology, in addition to reducing costs, they also maximize the efficiency of the processes, achieving greater competitiveness in their respective markets for the companies that decide to implement them.
This Lean Six Sigma methodology implies a change of thinking and needs a structure to be successful. The professionals who will be in charge of leading this project to a successful conclusion need specific training at different levels that demonstrate competence based on adequate and appropriate training, skills and experience.
This course provides the Black Belt level competencies that appear in a standardized way in the UNE-ISO 18404: 2017 standard “Quantitative methods for the improvement of Six Sigma processes: Competencies of key personnel and their organizations in relation to the implementation of Lean and of Six Sigma”. This will allow students to become leaders of internal change, implement improvement projects with impact, certify the rest of the staff in their organization and accredit their competence and capabilities as Six Sigma Master Black Belt, before any organization. When finished it will be an expert in methodologies (UNE-ISO 13053-1:2012) and tools (UNE-ISO 13053:2012) for the improvement of Lean Six Sigma processes and will be able to implement and lead high-impact projects.
Virtual classrooms are an online tutor-led training room that allows us to train people anywhere in the world as if they were all together in one class. The difference between e-learning training and the delivery modality through the virtual classroom is that the training, in this case, is directed by a real tutor and is live. Students can ask questions and interact with the tutor and other classmates. The platform allows workshops, exercises, surveys, videos, audio, documents, the tutor’s webcam and games to be shared with students, making the experience immersive and interactive.
The participants in the course will receive at the end of it, the certificate of the course corresponding to the “Six Sigma- Black Belt” level, according to the competences established in the UNE-ISO 18404: 2017 standard. Degree issued by 6sigma.
