Lean Methods has designed the Fast-Track Black Belt Program to give you the opportunity to certify with the same rigor of the traditional Black Belt Program and with the same high quality content, but at an accelerated rate. Through blended learning, (instructor-led live virtual training and state of the art e-learning), personalized project coaching by a Lean Methods’ Master Black Belt, and an assigned project, we give you more than the usual set of tools to set you up for success.

Following the disciplined Six Sigma DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) road map, this course teaches you how to collect and analyze performance data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint root causes, and institute new protocols to greatly improve processes. In addition to teaching the complementary methodologies of Lean and Six Sigma, this course also provides skills in leading teams through the process of change.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply such Lean concepts as 5S, waste reduction, process mapping, value stream mapping and mistake proofing.
  • Define, scope and execute DMAIC projects.
  • Apply the DMAIC methodology to business issues and transition projects from phase to phase.
  • Apply basic and more advanced statistical analyses to determine the relationship between key inputs and process outputs.
  • Effectively manage team dynamics and understand how to work with multiple levels of leadership to remove barriers and achieve project success.
  • Close projects and hand over control to process owners.
  • Present projects to instructors, peers and managers.


There are no prerequisites for this course; however, there is recommended reading which may be found in the “Detailed Information” tab.

Who Should Attend?

  • Operational excellence practitioners and leaders
  • Team leaders; program, product, and project managers
  • Anyone with a focus on career building and improving their visibility within their company
  • Those interested in becoming a Scrum Master

Students will attend four hours per day of live instructor-led virtual classroom via the Microsoft Teams platform and blend this learning with Lean Methods’ state of the art online Black Belt course. The course is designed to be accelerated through three weeks of back-to-back virtual classroom training. Students may utilize their personalized project coaching hours as they wish e.g, studying for exams, project work, or a specific chosen topic.

Students should expect to come to the virtual classroom ready to participate in interactive simulations with students from other industry sectors.
