Six Sigma Champion Certification


About Six Sigma Champion Certification

The Management and Strategy Institute developed the Six Sigma Champion Certification course to teach you the key duties and responsibilities of the Champion role during a Six Sigma project.  Champions act as the project sponsor.  They initiate the project within the organization and act as an intermediary between the project team and company stakeholders.

The role of Six Sigma Champion is complex.  Champions must communicate the vision and goals of the Six Sigma project to the project team, while also balancing the needs of the company and top executives.

A Champion’s efforts for each project are broken into four proficiency areas.  These include:

  • Business and operations interface
  • Project selection
  • Pace mediation and roadblock removal
  • Results Implementation

The Champion is tasked with developing solutions for improving company operations and creating value for the customer.

Their goal is to reduce defects, improve return on investment, and improve customer satisfaction.  This is accomplished through driving Six Sigma as the individual responsible for belt performance.

These are the individuals who execute the vision throughout the company and identify and prioritize projects.
