    Honestly, I don’t have an answer for your case. But you are not alone, I am in a similar situation, the difference is that I am in California.
    My recommendation/comment: don’t give up and shoot for a non-managerial position; you will be able to work your way up the ladder once you are in.
    Good luck and don’t get discouraged by useless replies, like the first one by “S” (probably “sour grape”?).
    Take care!

    Anonymous,
    I completely agree with you on the statement that Minitab is not only for the “simple stuff”, in addition is not that “user friendly”.
    SPC XL and DOE Kiss are quite more basic than Minitab, for example

    Check your measurement system as well! Maybe there is something wrong with it.
    Good luck!

    Hi all,
    I invite everyone to value the positive things about this forum! If by any reason (misinterpretation, egos, etc) you think a reply is aggressive, please don’t take it personal. I believe that most of us are trying to help each other.
    Enjoy this and many other things in life,…. life is too short to get upset over insignificant events. It is all about attitude!
    Happy weekend!

    Hi Chaz,
    Without the specs you won’t be able to calculate “precision to tolerance ratio”, but you can calculate the “precision to total ratio” (sigma measurement divided by sigma total). I assume you know how to make the calculations; othewise, feel free to e-mail me:

    I agree with you, let the market decide.
    Companies should be careful; there’s all kinds of consultants.., some are good, some are not good at all; some are interested only in their profit, others also care about a win-win relationship with their clients.
    Ciao!

    Hi Joe,
    I am sorry to hear this. I don’t know if it will give you some comfort to know that you are not alone. I have been in a similar situation!
    I carefully read the five points that you described in your message. Here’s my input:
    1) Six Sigma is an initiative/philosophy that requires top management support to achieve a successful deployment; therefore you won’t be able to do it by yourself. Do whatever you can to learn and improve your area, maybe you can work on smaller projects that don’t require much of the MBB’s support. Learn, learn, learn and get ready for the future.
    2) Offer your help/support to other departments (talk to everybody, not only the managers or directors), this will help you to identify improvement opportunities, if you identify those opportunities, talk to the Manager of that Department, he/she may have a positive reaction and a new project can result from this.
    3) Do whatever you can to cooperate and get involved. If you don’t have GBs or YBs (or other kind of support), then get ready to do all kinds of things: from writing procedures to training people, etc. When we cooperate we feel good and useful.
    4) Keep your eyes open for other opportunities! I am sure you will find something better because you really want to help and make a difference!
    If you want to e-mail me, please do so. Good luck!

    These are the requirements at my company:
    1) Complete BB training (4 weeks) + complete 2 projects as a BB + apply and obtain BB certification.
    If #1 is not complete, you can not continue with the MBB training.
    2) Complete MBB training (2 weeks) + complete instructor internship (certain number of weeks teaching GB and BB) + mentorship
    These elements shall be covered in order to apply for the certification.

    Dear Jack,
    I have the same problem and my frustration has reached the highest point. I am a MBB at a very big company, my team developed the SS infrastructure for a new division, we trained BB, GB and YB; selected the projects based on top level CTQs, etc, etc, etc. The Top Managers are the members of the Steering Committee. Wow! “They are involved”.
    I even did Six Sigma on how to improve Six Sigma …., applied DMAIC (sounds crazy, but it’s true); Top Management knows perfectly the root causes and main barriers to achieve continuous improvement, they know what we need to do, etc. They keep saying that they will support…., but they never have the time to initiate the change. Without their involvement, support and direction we are not going to be successful. We already started loosing our best GBs! I guess I am next.
    Good luck!

    The KBM Book (Knowledge Based Management) by the Air Academy Associates is simple and basic.
    Good luck!
