Supports the Joint Commission's activities associated with establishing and sustaining a robust process improvement culture. The Black Belt will lead strategic projects for the Joint Commission and mentor Green Belts. The Black Belt will learn and then enable others in adapting Six Sigma, Lean, CAP, and other performance improvement methodologies to drive results. The Black Belt will support the Master Black Belt in the development and implementation of a quality improvement training program for Joint Commission employees, which includes training Green Belts and others in problem solving. The Black Belt provides expert advice to process improvement teams regarding team dynamics, change management, process re-design strategies, performance improvement toolsets (especially those of Six Sigma and Lean), and technical expertise, such as statistical process control and flow, pull and data analysis. Initially the Black Belt will coach internal process improvement teams; however, as internal black belts are developed, the Black Belt will also provide guidance to process teams in the external health care community, as a part of the Joint Commission's strategy to employ Lean Six Sigma tools to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
