 LSS  STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT 

You may submit your questions in advance using this link.       

One of the most talked about topics in the past several years has been whether the Lean & Six Sigma community needed some standardization of Black Belt and other Lean & Six Sigma Belt training curriculum. During several panel discussions held during the most prominent Lean & Six Sigma Conferences, the audience and the panel members concluded that standardization of training was critical for providing consistency. In an effort to respond to the needs of the LSS community, a Committee was formed consisting of a group of well-known experts on Lean & Six Sigma, to create a set of standards for Black Belt Training. After a great deal of work, the LSS Standards for Black Belt Training is complete. Dr. Feldman will discuss the main clauses and components of the standard, and describe the implications of the standard on existing and future certifications. He will answer questions regarding the future of other planned Belt standards. 

This is a must-attend session to hear how the LSS community is moving forward and how it will benefit your organization. The audience will be encouraged to ask such questions as:

  • How will the Standard be deployed?
  • What are the key elements of the Standard?
  • How will this Standard help my organization?
  • What other Standards will be developed moving forward?


The following topics will be presented with a brief explanation of each, the rationale for including it in a LSS BB curriculum and examples of how these tools will apply to all types of organizations be they manufacturing or non-manufacturing.

  1. Lean & Six Sigma Introduction 
  2. DMAIC and Purpose/Goal for Each Phase
