Who is a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt?

The Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) is a professional who can explain Six Sigma philosophies and principles, including supporting systems and tools. A Black Belt should demonstrate team leadership, understand team dynamics, and assign team member roles and responsibilities. Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They have basic knowledge of lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify nonvalue-added elements and activities, and are able to use specific tools.

What are core competencies of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt?

✅ Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the define, measure, analyze, improve, and control (DMAIC) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles.

✅ They have basic knowledge of lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify nonvalue-added elements and activities, and are able to use specific tools.

✅ Advanced understanding of project definition as well as team roles and responsibilities.

✅ Advanced understanding of the measure phase, including process mapping, data collection plans and techniques, understanding variation, and visually displaying baseline performance.

✅ Advanced understanding of the analyze phase, including displaying data visually, cause and effect analysis, and verification of root causes.

✅ Advanced learning of the improve phase, including brain-storming, selecting a solution, and implementation planning.

✅ Advanced understanding of the control phase, including assessing the results of process improvement, statistical process control overview, and documenting the process.
