SSMI LSS MBB (APAC/Middle East/ Africa)


The SSMI® Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Training & Certification program is designed and developed to upgrade the skill set of already certified Black Belts to become mentors, trainers and change agents, and leaders in their organizations. The programme is designed and developed based on the original teachings of the late Prof. Michael J Harry, principal architect of Six Sigma and National best-selling author along with a panel of experts using years of research. The content is updated constantly to provide the latest knowledge and skills required for developing a competent Master Black Belt.


Already certified Black Belts and Master Black Belts from other institutes with a minimum 2-3 years of post-qualifying experience. Successful completion of any professional qualification or a Master's degree is necessary to support the academic demands of this program.

We can't improve what we don't measure. We don't measure what we don't value.
–Dr. Mikel J. Harry
