A Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

Not that long ago it would have cost you a fortune to become a genuine Master Black Belt. Today it can still be quite expensive though more options are available, predominently in the USA.

At AOBIL we’ve been developing MBBs since the early 2000s through integrating a high quality Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program with a unique set of courses focusing on (a) influence, persuasion and change leadership, and (b) business execution.

This AOBIL MBB development program is now an extension of that approach, albeit with the price and access advantages offered with the development of online training mechanisms.

How It Works

There are 6 steps to achieving certification as a LSSMBB through AOBIL:

STEP 1 – Complete the Lean Six Sigma Green Training

STEP 2 – Get Certified as a LSSGB

STEP 3 – Complete the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training
