North Carolina Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training and Certification
Leaders and supervisors in a company are in those positions for a reason, and when it comes to Lean Six Sigma, that reason is more obvious than usual: because they are more prepared and experienced. This is why a black belt is a level you should go for if you want to fill those roles in the methodology. But is this enough reason to choose the black belt among all the belts or levels in the methodology? To answer this question, you need to know that all belts bring benefits. Actually, they have some in common:
- Gain hands-on experience in quality management and data collecting.
- A better salary.
- More career options and opportunities.
- Learn how to work as a team.
- Develop problem-solving skills.
- Improve decision-making.
- Be valuable for all companies from different industries.
But when you focus on the black belt only, the first difference comes right away: you are able to fulfill leadership roles instead of small ones. For this, the training includes many topics and helps all individuals taking it to develop skills, starting with the leadership skills and guarantee they are able to make decisions based on the situation and company’s needs. There is a lot involved with black belts and if you want to be always present in projects, can handle responsibilities, and want to climb to higher positions, make sure to go for this belt instead of any other.

Therefore, you can count on us if you are a worker from a company that needs to integrate 6 Sigma or just someone who is looking for new opportunities in the professional area.
Is Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Better Than A Green Belt?
In terms of roles, you can fulfill and knowledge you will acquire, yes, it is. Overall, the answer will be ‘yes’ in all cases since it is the next level that follows the green belt, so it is inevitable to say that it is better when it comes to benefits and what you can learn from it. However, everything depends on what are your goals and needs regarding LSS as well. Not everyone wants to fill leadership roles or have so many responsibilities within a company but rather remain low but still with great benefits.
If what you want fits this, you should go for a green belt instead of a black one considering you will have less free time and more things to do when going for the latest. But if you are definitely aiming for better job positions and want to handle an entire team, the black belt will be the best option. Most people who ask us this question are trying to determine the training they should go for right away, but in our experience, we have determined that it is better to go according to the belt progress.
What does this mean? That despite not being a requirement, a green belt before taking the black one would be a great benefit once you move onto this one. Why? Because you will be able to finish it faster and gain some experience that will prepare you more for future roles and responsibilities. However, you can always choose the black belt training without having to feel pressure to spend around 2 to 3 weeks on the green one and if this is your final decision, our expert at Lean Six Sigma Experts of North Carolina will be there for you. Our black belt training reviews topics from the yellow and green belt, which means you will not be lacking in the basics and previous knowledge.
