What is the difference between “Black Belt” & “Lean Black Belt Certification?
Lean Six Sigma simply means a program that includes “lean” principles in the Six Sigma Curriculum. Many Six Sigma Black Belt programs are actually “Lean” Six Sigma Black Belt Programs (although they do not include “lean” in the name). The easiest way to tell is simply by looking at their course curriculum.
You can actually request that the Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate be printed as “Lean Six Sigma Black Belt” upon course completion.
