Six Sigma leadership is central to implementation success. Instead of a half hearted unplanned
effort, Six Sigma deployment should be a well thought out strategy. Master Black Belts being
teachers, mentors and guides need to know much more than advanced statistical techniques.
This program is designed to help Black Belts graduate to a Master Black Belt role.
