Lean and Six Sigma are just tools that an Engineer should have as one of the options when designing or improving a process, equipment, or a system. I am an Engineer and worked that way since 2008.
I first started practicing Lean Six Sigma in 2011 through internal training as Green Belt in our manufacturing plant. In 2012, reorganization resulted to the creation of the Manufacturing Process Improvement (MPI) Department. Since there were no Black Belt to run and manage the department, I acted as Black Belt from 2012 to 2015 when I left and joined my current employer and role taking on more challenges w/ higher complexity. Lean Six Sigma is not a silver bullet against the werewolf of a problem. My take, since 2011 when I first became a practitioner, LSS or SS is just another tool in one’s arsenal of businesses tool set. I worked and drove projects to success, and even got an award because of it, without the title of a Certified LSS or SS person. Its not the certification that matters, its what’s in between your ears that does. But, yes, having some title adds an air of credibility – I have several myself. 😁👍
