Mercer University‘s Center for Executive Education is offering a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Black Belt Certificate Program. This program is available to Mercer employees and students who have previously earned their Green Belt Certificate.

The upcoming four-session Black Belt program runs Sept. 7 and 14, Oct. 19 and Nov. 9. Each of the first three sessions are on Mercer’s Atlanta Campus from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The last session will be the group project presentations and certificate ceremony from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

“The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program is the third program in the Lean Six Sigma series, and this is the first time we are offering it to our Mercer family,” said Jeff Wolfe, director of the Center for Executive Education. “This program is geared to those who have completed their Yellow and Green Belts and are looking to take continuous process improvement to the next level.”

This program has been designed for any employee who wants to understand how they can improve their ability to handle conflict, create an effective workflow (especially those working from home) and signal to their employer how they effectively manage their time.

In addition to the LSS Black Belt program, registration is still open for the upcoming Center for Executive Education leadership certificate programs:
