But what does the Master Black Belt certification entail, and what does it mean for both an individual and a business?

The articles on this page explain how both individuals and organizations can benefit from a Six Sigma Master Black Belt, and why it’s the highest – and one of the most important – levels of Six Sigma training. You’ll get qualified insights about the role a Master Black Belt plays within an organization’s larger leadership profile, and what separates him/her from other belt tiers in the Six Sigma management system as well as from a traditional Six Sigma black belt.

Becoming a Six Sigma Master Black Belt can help professionals in any industry improve their management skills and become better adept at leading projects from conception to successful completion. Master Black Belt training is especially useful for contractors, who can lend their increasingly valuable skills to organizations on an as needed basis. A Master Black Belt is adept at leading projects, but also mentoring others, interpreting data sets, and setting goals that will move projects toward success with efficiency and care.
