OpEx Six Sigma Black Belt is advanced training. Although the participants are learning the more advanced techniques and tools of Six Sigma, this is not the main objective of the course. The practical and effective usage of these tools is the key concept shaping the program’s philosophy. Critical Thinking and the ability to ask suitable questions forms the basis for effective use of knowledge in practice.

Pure data is no substitute for knowledge, and indeed knowledge development is the essence of Six Sigma philosophy. Not even the most sophisticated and advanced methods of analysis will replace good data, which is to say data collected in a way that provides an opportunity to increase our knowledge and improve our products. This is the most important competency of Black Belt.

Training is based on practical tasks which involve the participant having a hands?on experience of discovering the knowledge which we want to transmit to them. We believe that this is the only way to show the practical application of Six Sigma. During training we share our experience. For every subject we present real-life cases which underline the practical application of presented concepts and tools. Training is designed to give all participants the chance to practice each learned concept and tool throughout the course. One training session requires that three to four weeks are dedicated to project work before the participants progress to the subsequent training session. Usually instruction is provided by three trainers, each of whom have second level Master Black Belt Certification and several years of professional experience.
