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.
Wigan could be the archetypal northern town, fulfilling practically every stereotype people might have of the region. It was a relatively sleepy farming and market town in between the minor cities of Manchester and Liverpool and then along came the Industrial revolution and everything changed. While most northern towns had a single trade, be it coal, mills, glass or engineering, Wigan got a bit of everything, particularly the first two. The canals and railways came to town and the population exploded, and Wigan became a real powerhouse in the region, with an estimated thousand mines running simultaneously.
And then, true to the script, the town went into decline as manufacturing went abroad or the demand for its produce waned. But the population of Wigan weren’t cowed by this. They diversified and the town is still thriving to this day. The Tote, Heinz, JJB Sports and Chinamex all have a presence here, and it’s also the home of Uncle Joe’s mintballs!
The town, which is situated between the M61 and the M6, has good shopping and employment, and has a lively entertainment sector, with revellers travelling miles for its night life. It also boasts two top-flight sports clubs: Wigan Athletic Football Club and the rugby league club Wigan Warriors. Ukulele and saucy song maestro George Formby was born in Wigan, as was 80s pop sensation Limahl (he of Kajagoogoo fame, not one of the other Limahls) and the band The Verve. Much-missed actor Roy Kinnear was born there too.
With great links to the major North West cities and towns, an active population of approaching 300,000 throughout the borough and a diverse employment status, Wigan is a great place to find a Master Black Belt - Six Sigma position.
