Champions consist of the executives or other leaders within a business that are sponsoring Six Sigma projects. These individuals are in charge of assisting, aligning, and incorporating the Six Sigma deployment within their corporation. A Champion must know the fundamentals of Six Sigma Methodology, with a concentration on the selection of projects which are associated with the business goals of the organization. In addition, Champions will choose and mentor the “Belts” or Six Sigma project leaders by ensuring the Belts get the instruction and assets required to lead Six Sigma projects productively.
