Webcast: Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt Series

Free seminars in April and May for lean Six Sigma professionals

Published: Tuesday, March 15, 2011 - 15:10

(MoreSteam.com LLC: Lewis Center, OH) -- MoreSteam.com, a global provider of online lean Six Sigma (LSS) training and blended learning support technologies, announces its 2011 Master Black Belt (MBB) spring webcast series, which will be offered in April and May 2011. In this series of free, one-hour lectures, process improvement experts will cover three advanced topics: negotiation, transactional design of experiments (DOE), and process modeling. The webcasts, spread over a four-week period, will provide lean Six Sigma professionals with continuing education on a selection of essential subjects not covered in basic training classes.

The 2011 MBB webcast series follows MoreSteam’s successful 2010 summer and fall series. New in this series is a lecture by Roy Lewicki, Ph.D., Abramowitz Professor at the Max M. Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, and a pioneer in the teaching of negotiation skills in business schools across the country.

The spring lectures are:
• “Experimental Design in the Transactional Arena,” Smita Skrivanek, MoreSteam.com, Thursday, April 14, 1 p.m. EDT
• “Negotiating Your Way to Success," Roy Lewicki, Ph.D., The Ohio State University, Thursday, April 28, 1 p.m. EDT
• “Driving Insight Through Process Modeling,” Lars Maaseidvaag, Ph.D., MoreSteam.com, Thursday, May 12, 1 p.m. EDT


The series material is geared for experienced lean Six Sigma professionals looking to add to their skill set. Attendees can register to attend any or all of these lectures, which will all be recorded and made available for download from the MoreSteam.com website. Note that these presentations also qualify for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Black Belt recertification program, where professionals can list webcasts under the “professional development” category.

The current webcast topics are based on the requests of prior series attendees and on the materials presented in greater detail in the MBB development program jointly offered by The Ohio State University and MoreSteam.com. Each presentation will define the concept, explain how the concept is applied, and include suggestions for how to successfully coach others on the same material. Attendees will receive summary and supporting materials following the webcasts.

In April 2010, MoreSteam.com and the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University launched an innovative and affordable MBB development program. The collaborative program, which employs a blended learning design of classroom instruction at The Ohio State University campus and online instruction from MoreSteam, covers the MBB body of knowledge and topics such as advanced design of experiments, project management, process modeling, financial analysis, ideation, process modeling, and design of lean systems. More information on the MBB development program may be found on the MoreSteam website.
