Q1: What is Master Black Belt?
Master Black Belt (MBB) is a management qualification for strategically leading continuous improvement in an organization while working closely with leadership. An MBB’s biggest skill is to pick and execute suitable methods for a short-term or a long-term business challenge.
A Business Excellence Master Black Belt has ability to utilize advanced Lean methods, model building & simulation, creativity approaches, theory of constraints, and comparison methods. In addition, an MBB needs to know how technology approaches in Business Analytics and Robotic Process Automation can be put to good use for business results.
Q2: What is required for Master Black Belt certification?
Master Black Belt requires completion of 8 certifications in addition to Black Belt Certification. These eight certifications are Lean Practitioner, Lean Guide, Business Modelling Expert, Business Value Analyst, Creativity and Innovation Practitioner, AHP Practitioner, RPA Foundation and Business Analytics Foundation.
While these 9 certifications (including Black Belt) can be pursued at different times, completion of all leads to MBB qualification.
A Master Black Belt should be willing to lead problem solving in a Strategic Business Unit of an organization.
Q3: How long does it take to get a Business Excellence Master Black Belt?
A Master Black Belt qualification will require about 6-8 weeks if Black Belt certification is already completed.
While completing classes and practice sessions takes only weeks, building thorough competence will take months or years of practice. A Master Black Belt needs to work closely with leadership team to be able to apply his learning and hone his skills further. For quick results, it is best for a company to partner with an expert external consultant to build this competence with application orientation.
