Now that Six Sigma is a fully entrenched methodology for process improvement, demand for Black Belts and Master Black Belts has created an ecosystem of training and jobs that few would have predicted twenty years ago. Now, the Master Black Belt is an essential component in a Six Sigma project and is responsible for its strategic realization. He or she is also involved with assisting the Black Belts and Green Belts as required, with the ultimate aim of achieving maximum productivity in the process by eliminating errors and inconsistencies throughout.
The scope of the Master Black Belt’s role is dependent on the structure of the company, but they can be overseeing a single complex process or a number of straightforward ones, analyzing and improving as they go. There will be close relationships with suppliers and customers, too, as achieving near-perfection involves the whole supply chain.
Companies that have adopted Six Sigma methodology usually have an infrastructure in place, and you, the Master Black Belt, will be expected to get up to speed quickly in your work with the team. However, as companies are still adopting the system as they embark on quality drives, you could well be overseeing a process from its inception, which requires even more advanced organizational and interpersonal skills.
You should have risen through the ranks of Six Sigma through Green and Black Belt status, and depending on the role, you may require experience as a Master Black Belt with the relevant qualifications, or you could simply have recently passed the qualification and are looking to make the move. Experience of working in the same industry would of course be a useful attribute to better understand the ecosystem and the way the company works.
Have you achieved Master Black Belt status but are still being treated – and compensated – as a Black Belt? It’s probably time to jump ship and put your skills to good use. At Cast UK we regularly have change and transformation clients who have adopted Six Sigma or are looking to adopt it, and who are looking for talented people just like you.
Cast UK is right now filling vacancies in management and directorships right across the United Kingdom, and we’d love to hear from you if you’re a Black Belt looking to make the change. Call us today on 0333 121 3345.
A former postal county in England, North Humberside comprised the areas within Humberside that were north of the River Humber - it had previously been covered by the Yorkshire postal county.
Some of the towns that were located in the region included Beverly, Hull, Hornsea, Goole and Cottingham.
In 1996, the county of Humberside was abolished and the northern half of the county became the unitary authority areas of East Riding of Yorkshire and Kingston upon Hull.
Although the region no longer officially exists, the towns in what was once North Humberside still offer a variety of options for those seeking Master Black Belt - Six Sigma positions.
For much of their past, these settlements were market towns that traded local produce and wool. In addition, Hull was an important port and the famous Hornsea Pottery was manufactured in North Humberside until the factory was closed in 2000.
These days, the local economy relies on a number of industries, including food manufacturing, shipping, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and energy.
Just some of the other companies that have large facilities in the region include Seven Seas, Reckitt Benckiser, BP and Siemens.
