Event Details



Successful completion of this training leads to the award of ILM Level 5 Certificate in Service Improvement


Note: ILM = Institute of Leadership and Management.

This eight day workshop develops Lean Six Sigma Blackbelts qualifying them to become agents of change within an organization. It is suited to those who will have a company-wide role in Six Sigma, including the deployment of the methodology, project selection work, and leadership responsibilities. The course uses a blend of theory and practical exercises to ensure that delegates have the confidence and capability to deliver more complex business improvement projects and transformations

Black Belts can develop individual projects or they can engage in a macro Black Belt project which can incorporate several Green Belt projects as support. The tools acquired during training will enable them to solve more challenging problems and use team dynamics to lead improvement teams towards the implementation of change within the organization.

Besides refresher training on key topics covered at Greenbelt level, subjects dealt with in the Blackbelt course include project mandate preparation, team leadership and facilitation techniques, as well as project management skills.

On the data analysis side, Statistical analysis plays a major part of this course. Means to deal with non-normal data are considered, there are also sections on probability, the binomial and Poisson distributions, and multiple factor analysis. Design of experiments is also considered – this is a structured approach to experimentation to help determine which inputs are important in a process.

Previous participant organisations include Balcas, Citi, Kingspan Renewables, Translink, AVX, Terumo, Schlumberger Ryobi, J.W. Kane, and Moy Park

Training Dates:

Define / Measure Phase: Monday 3rd April – Wednesday 5th April

Analyse Phase: Monday 8th May – Wednesday 10th May

Improve / Control Phase: Monday 5th June – Tuesday 6th June

Project Presentation / Certification: TBC

Course Structure

The training modules are split as follows:

Define/Measure: 3 days

Analyse: 3 days

Improve/Control: 2 days

A gap of around 4 weeks between each module provides an opportunity for trainees to work on a project within their workplace, applying the methodology learned during the previous session's training. Extra support can be provided for the trainees with their project work.


Certification is available upon completion of Blackbelt training plus one project in which the targeted savings have been achieved; a report which demonstrates the use of the tools and methodology is required. A test also has to be undertaken.

This workshop can also be delivered in-house as a stand-alone training workshop or integrated into wider improvement activities.
