Friday, October 13, 2017

9:00 AM-5:00 PM

The Drexel Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training is a comprehensive and rigorous journey that a dedicated student can undertake to expand and hone his or her continuous improvement skills. Facilitated classroom teaching is used to demonstrate and practice tools and skills which the student then immediately applies to a real world opportunity.

Sessions are fast paced and timed to synchronize with a typical project life cycle. Throughout the project, the student will receive coaching and mentoring, both as part of the classroom group and individually, to maximize the student’s success. Upon completion of the class, project and a final exam the student will become a certified Black Belt, able to address larger and more complex challenges.
