DESCRIPTION

Black Belt training enables you to make a difference in your organization by reducing harm, increasing patient throughput, improving provider satisfaction, and delivering more affordable care. To create such an impact, you will master several key quality improvement competencies:

  • Meeting facilitation skills to guide teams through consensus decision-making
  • Change leadership tactics to reduce resistance to change

BLENDED CONCEPT = ONLINE + CLASSROOM

Green Belt for Black Belts

The 2-day classes are highly experiential with role play meetings, data simulations, case studies and videos. The emphasis is on moving your project along during these sessions. And, for this reason, you are strongly encouraged to attend with your project team.

Before and between the class sessions, there are a series of live webinars. And each live session is offered three times a week, as well as saved for viewing later. This offers you the flexibility to select the webinar that best meets your schedule. About half of these sessions focus on Minitab™ and Quality Companion™ software training. In addition, self-paced interactive learning modules are provided to support the live webinars. [The Minitab™ and Quality Companion™ software is included in the price of the program.]
