Georgia Tech Adds Six Sigma to Executive Programs Line-up
Green Belt and Black Belt Certification Offered
Posted February 6, 2004 | Atlanta
The Huang Executive Education Center announces open registration for its new Georgia Tech Six Sigma Green and Black Belt Programs. The Green Belt Certification program is offered in the spring and fall of 2004 and the Black Belt Certification is offered in July of 2004 of this year and again in January 2005.
Six Sigma is a highly integrated management philosophy that top companies world-wide are using to solve business problems and drive out costs in the organization. Six Sigma provides techniques to structure the problem-solving process through a five-step DMAIC (Define/Measure/Analyze/Improve/Control) methodology and is frequently described as a combination of vision, philosophy, goals, metrics and method used to not only create a standard but deal with the necessary cultural and organizational change.
Six Sigma is successfully applied in such corporations as The Home Depot, Motorola, Coca-Cola, TSYS, SunTrust Bank, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, and GE (whose use of the methodology is considered by many to be the industry standard). From a corporate perspective, Six Sigma is an established and successful method that will improve business and the way it is conducted. For anyone interested in Six Sigma, becoming certified can only enhance career development.
"Six Sigma is a proven methodology for problem solving that accelerates the identification of root causes and ensures consistent long-term gains," says Lee Campe, who will teach both the Green Belt and Black Belt courses. In addition to being a Master Black Belt for many organizations, Campe has also been a Vice President at JP Morgan Chase and Director of Six Sigma for Cordis Corporation. He is currently consulting for companies in the areas of Six Sigma deployment, training and development and executive education
The two week Green Belt Certification courses will be held in two modules: March 29 - April 2 and May 3 -7; and repeated October 4 -8, and November 8-12. Black Belt certification requires an additional week offered July 26 - 30 and January 10 - 14, 2005. Black Belt certification is available to those who have completed Green Belt training.
"This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about Six Sigma or earning a black belt certificate. I encourage anyone who is currently participating in Six Sigma or who is interested in starting a Six Sigma program to register for one of both of these courses" says Dan Stotz, Director of Executive Education for the Huang Center.
