Students learn tools for pulsing the organization to test the effectiveness of their approaches and assess the degree of support from key leaders. Students are encouraged to adopt an evolutionary design perspective and modify their solutions continuously based on feedback and results achieved--documented benefits in cost savings, process speed increases, enhanced customer satisfaction, and revenue enhancements. All examinations must be passed with a score of 80% or better. Students present their final project reports and receive feedback from faculty and a team of peers. Those who complete all requirements with a grade of B or better will earn a Black Belt Certificate demonstrating proficiency in using advanced Lean Six Sigma methods and processes to lead organization performance improvement initiatives.
