In a Six Sigma
project, the Black Belt is the team leader
responsible for the operation and outcomes
of major Six
Sigma projects. To achieve
Black Belt status it is necessary to demonstrate
mastery of the tools, through an examination
and completing a project in industry.
A typical Black Belt course
involves about 16 days of training carried
out over four months plus a completed project.
Society for Quality (ASQ) also offers
a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt qualification.
