Master Black Belt


Course length: 2 weeks over 2 months plus apprenticeship period

The development model for Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belts has evolved to mirror the traditional apprentice-journeyman-master model. This is largely based on the recognition that true mastery cannot be gained through didactic learning alone. Mentoring support is provided on a decreasing scale offset with increasing levels of autonomy and the assumption of responsibility for subordinate projects, training delivery and mentoring. The NOVACES Master Black Belt training is typically customized for the client organization. The topics presented below are included in the training portion of our Master Black Belt apprenticeship. The training is followed by a period of apprenticeship by a seasoned Master Black Belt, at which time the candidate learns various advanced skills such as leadership, facilitation, mentoring, and statistical analysis.
