Six Sigma – Black Belt Training


This course is designed to provide participants with a profound and in-depth understanding of the six-sigma approach to driving improvement of business processes throughout the entire organization.


Held in a workshop format, this 20-day course is designed to teach participants how to effectively use the tools of six sigma. Graduates.

Black Belt practitioners are the six sigma technical leaders and change agents for improvement, and play a vital role in the company’s six sigma effort.

A Black Belt will learn how to focus on and use the proven six sigma problem-solving and statistical tools to contribute to the success of the organization.

Green Belt training or the equivalent is considered to be a pre-requisite for this course of study. Black Belt training is a minimum of a four-week session of rigorous and applied training typically conducted over a four to six-month period.

The focus of this workshop is to enable participants to implement six sigma projects and achieve measurable improvements in the output of processes.

Participants will learn through lecture, class discussions, class exercises, case studies, on-site data homework consisting of process data collection and analysis, and team breakouts.

SatiStar’s experts will follow-up this training with on-site consultants to ensure that the use of the tools is applied effectively.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
