Black belts become strategic change agents, designing and overseeing
Lean Learning strategies and driving initiatives.

In addition to all Yellow and Green Belt skills, they learn how to:

Identify and Manage all
Learning Value Streams for a
Division or Entire Organization
Increase Knowledge Flow
throughout the Organization
Link Learning
to Business Objectives and
Financial Measures
Green and Yellow Belts

Black Belts learn these skills while actively applying them to help their organizations
achieve their missions. By the end of the certification, the Black Belt will be able to
strategically remake learning throughout their entire organization.

"With Lean Learning, my entire L&D team is working to
reduce training waste in everything they design and deliver.
They are thinking about learning in a whole new way."
— Maverick Black Belt Candidate, World-Renowned Children's Hospital

Self-study + One-on-One Coaching

Maverick certifications are designed to be Lean! Belt candidates study at their own convenience via e-learning and receive one-on-one telephone coaching by a Lean Learning Black Belt. Progress to completion is carefully tracked via project management tools and the candidate's supervisor can view progress at any time.

Three Certification Projects

The Black Belt Certification requires completion of three strategic projects. Choice of projects is up to the candidate, however, we always recommend choosing a project with the potential to generate a 10x return on the cost of certification to demonstrate Lean's power to dramatically save money and resources.

Special Note for Corporate Transformation Programs

In corporate Lean Learning transformation programs where entire learning
teams are being certified, Black Belts typically manage Green and Yellow
Belt candidates as part of their certification. Our project management tools
allow the Black Belt to easily track progress of their team members'
progress in learning and with their projects.
