This book has been created to reflect the most current thinking among key Six Sigma leaders regarding what should be contained in the ASQ Master Black Belt Body of Knowledge (BoK). For quick reference and ease of use, chapter and section numbering exactly mirrors that of the BoK. The primary audience for this work is the individual who plans to prepare to sit for the Six Sigma Master Black Belt certification examination. Therefore, this book assumes the individual has the necessary educational background and experience in quality and Lean Six Sigma. Concepts are dealt with briefly, but supplemented with practical examples. Theoretical discussion has been avoided unless such a discussion was necessary to communicate a concept. A secondary audience for the handbook is the quality and Six Sigma professional who would like a relevant Lean Six Sigma reference book. With this audience in mind, some material has been expanded beyond what the Body of Knowledge requires. The CD accompanying the print book and at the end of the e-book versions includes a practice problem set covering each part of the book and a simulated examination that has problems distributed among parts according to the scheme published in the Body of Knowledge.

Six Sigma is a quality improvement initiative that has evolved over 20 years and is utilized in organizations around the world. The initiative is deployed by a variety of personnel, with Six Sigma Black Belts facilitating the individual projects that serve to reduce waste and enhance customer value throughout all departments within organizations. Extensive education and training is required to become a Six Sigma Black Belt; however, this training rarely, if ever, contains leadership training. As leadership is important to the overall success of the Six Sigma projects and thus, the overall initiative, it is important to know if Six Sigma Black Belts have adequate leadership skills to facilitate Six Sigma project teams. This study serves to quantify Six Sigma Black Belts' leadership abilities through Bass and Avolio's Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire.

Six Sigma has emerged as one of the most successful business improvement models of the latter 20th century; yet, there has been little research devoted to the quality of the training and curriculum that is the foundation of this quality improvement methodology. Bruce DeRuntz explores the perceptions of Black Belt trainers with respect to the criteria they use to evaluate Six Sigma projects. More specifically, he discovers the trainer s perceptions of the relative importance of the American Society for Quality s (ASQ) Certified Six Sigma Body of Knowledge (BOK), the relative importance of non-technical skills for a Black Belt, and the BOK s applicability for use as evaluation criteria for Six Sigma projects. Through his research with Master Black Belts, he identifies; the hierarchy of importance for the major topics within the ASQ s BOK, the effect that project evaluation experience has on a trainer s performance, the value of having a valid and reliable project evaluation instrument, the appropriate amount of weighted scoring that should be used in the development of a project evaluation instrument, and validation of the affective skills needed to become a successful Black Belt.

This book is written for the Six Sigma Black Belt who needs an understanding of many statistical methods but does not use all of these methods every day. It is intended to be used as a quick reference, providing basic details, step-by-step instructions, and Minitab statistical software instructions. Six Sigma Black Belts typically use a statistical program such as Minitab to perform calculations, but an understanding of the underlying statistics is still needed. Anybody can type data into a program; a Black Belt must be capable of understanding which hypothesis test is appropriate for a given use, as well as the assumptions that must be met to correctly perform the hypothesis test. The methods presented here are laid out according to the Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) phases in which they are typically used. However, these methods can also be applied outside of a Six Sigma project, such as when one simply needs to determine whether there is a difference in the means of two processes producing the same parts. A Six Sigma Black Belt using Statistics for Six Sigma Black Belts will be able to quickly zero in on appropriate methods and follow the examples to reach the correct statistical conclusions.

Although the Six Sigma Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) methodology is a widely accepted tool for achieving efficient management of all aspects of operations, there are still many unwarranted concerns about its perceived complexity and implementation costs. Dispelling these myths, Six Sigma for Powerful Improvement: A Green Belt DMAIC Training System with Software Tools and a 25-Lesson Course clarifies the long-accepted statistical and logical processes of Six Sigma and provides you with tools you can use again and again in your own "real world" projects—removing any doubts regarding their simplicity and "doability.". Not only does the book provide you with reasons for using the tools, it reveals the underlying doctrines, formulas, and steps required. Although the tools and techniques presented are specifically associated with the DMAIC philosophy, they are applicable across a wide range of management and improvement scenarios. Explaining Six Sigma processes in language that's easy to understand, the book starts with an overview, followed by specific techniques and procedures. It presents detailed, illustrated lesson segments that include an agenda, roadmap, objectives, and a list of takeaway concepts. It also: Provides seven separate Excel tool templates—each with its own user guide and additional smaller tools Presents completed Excel sample workbooks for each tool to facilitate your comprehension and utilization confidence Includes a CD with a PowerPoint-based DMAIC training course, the aforementioned Excel-based Six Sigma tools and workbooks, and extensive instructor’s notes embedded in each lesson Trained as and employed as a Black Belt and later as a Master Black Belt, the author presents doctrines and procedures with a strong pedigree and history of success. The book uses hundreds of figures and tables to illustrate key concepts and also makes them available in full-color on the accompanying CD. This is also true of the figures in the user guides that document the accompanying tools. For each of the tools, the book includes a completed sample workbook. The PowerPoint and Excel lessons and tools are provided in both 2007 and 97-2003 versions.
