The Six Sigma Lean Black Belt Certification with Education concentration is designed for those who work in the education sector.

Just like Lean Six Sigma, education is focused on obtaining the voice of the customer. These customers can be students, parents, taxpayers, or even state & federal regulators. Lean Six Sigma is about improving the processes within the education sector to meet customer needs. Many school districts around the world face the difficult decision of cutting programs or freeing up their budgets. Applying Lean Six Sigma allows schools to reduce waste and inefficiencies, freeing up some of that money for other uses.
There are many ways an individual school, school district, or college can benefit from applying Six Sigma. Waste and inefficiencies can be found in most departments, including facilities management and vendor management. Energy management and technology integration are also popular area’s for cost reductions. Applying Lean principles can help you locate and eliminate these costs. You’ll learn about processes such as A3 problem solving and Kaizen events, improvement methods that are being used successfully in the education sector today.
We also offer a Six Sigma Black Belt Certification and Six Sigma Lean Black Belt Certification without the Education component for those who do not want their certification to have an Education concentration.
