    MBBinWI definitely has the chops to comment. He’s right. The market is glutted with craptastic Consultants. You should get into something else, preferably something you actually have a knowledge base in. Be warned: you will get eaten alive. Sixsigma/CI Clients are in relatively rarified air and word will get around. How do you expect to vett your Cadre/staff if you have zippo for awareness/knowledge of 6S/CI?

    I agree w/ the OP. I’d like to see a return to the tree format, or at least to be be given the choice. Also, this new format is cumbersome, clunky and very slow.

    INavigation is just shy of excruciating.

    Rick,
    I’ve noticed that as well. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you call it, as long as you are using tools and methodologies to make bottom-line improvements.
    I don’t even call it 6S, or L6S, or whatever. I call it continuous improvement, or just doing “it” the right way.

    No need to get parochial or religious about what belongs under which umbrella.

    Jason,
    1st off, I’m so sorry that you and your dept lost your jobs…It is
    unimaginable…In your case, I would go ahead and pursue through a 3rd party
    Vendor, by then go seek out a local town, city, or county gov’t and
    offer to help them with a project in exchange for experience. I’d
    take it one step further and approach a local church, or synagogue
    and do the same. They’ll get improvements, you’ll get experience
    and some good networking opportunities.

    Freddy,
    My shop, like many other large corps, has had a fairly solid amount of 10-20 mill projects. When dealing w/ the Gov’t, high-dollar progress payments come into play. projects focused on meeting those milestones are numerous. Your statement concerning people being asleep is close, but the RCA indicates an entrenched, protectionist bureaucracy, as opposed to pure ineptitude. What’s worse: poor bottom line due to ineptitude, or poor bottom line due to purposeful inaction? You choose.

    Darth,
    It is simplistic, but it doesn’t mean it’s unobtaneable. You know this, working for a giganto like I do…The waste is epic and the culture doesn’t neccesarily tie waste/bureaucracy with their profit margin, nor do some defenders of the status quo want to change. They thrive in the margins and shadowy recesses. It’s so stupid…so wasteful. The things that are funded around here compared to what probably should be funded…it boggles the imagination. My simplistic approach is more than feasible here, given the large margins and cash flow in the B range. It’s a matter of will for these guys. Say a belt hits the bottom line for 20 million in genuine cost take out. Give him/her a small, but meaningful % of it and watch how many flock to the well. I experienced this for a short time back at another shop. It was really cool. idea fed idea, people were rewarded. people became confident and the culture changed dramatically. If THAT place could do it, my current shop certainly could.

    I consider the awarding of belts below Green as redundant and non value-added.As Stan stated, Please just go fix something.You want to spread the knowledge and change the culture? Reward positive behaviors with cash-money.
    Reward by promoting those who make bottom-line changes using the skills, tools, etc…Now, more than ever, put up $$$ behind the incipient (sp?) sloganeering and cheerleading. You want to be a “six sigma” company? You want to reduce waste and increase profits? Than cough up some dougha nd promo’s for the few that step up to lead. The rest of that care, will follow suit. Reward them with cash money and promos when they step up. The rest of the sheeple…well, send them to slaughter. Where the hell is our next Bossidy? I don’t like Welch, but i liked his style of “get on the train, or get the &*^% outta my company” when it came to 6S.

    MBB and Stan, I agree whole-heartedly w/ you both.
    back to Stevo’s thoughts. I respect Stevo immensly as a successful Change Agent, Contributor to this set of Fora and for his technical acumen.Stevo makes an interesting point, but, as UofCS decried, it is a right of passage of sorts, in that, how can one be expected to challenge the status quo and create, manifest and maintain true (and “sticking”) change, when they can’t handle a virtual-thrashing for laziness on an online/informal internet forum? When “smackees” whine, tuck tail and run from an internet smackdown, what use could they be in the real world of Machiavellian socio-politico goings on? Such a response in an aero/defense environment would be a career-ender. Right or wrong, it’s reality.Seriously…When interviewing potential hires, I look for a certain world-aware hardiness, in addition to skillset, experience and personality. If the Candidate comes off, in any way, as an entitlement, nanny-state, “me too, gimme-gimme”, cry-baby, the interview is over.Can we be more sensitive? Well, sure. But the real question is: Should we? Given the state of our industry and economy, it is in our best interests to vet and winnow the inepts, the entitlement whiners and the cert mill non-starters. No different than what a state bar would do in the legal realm.I had to endure the “rite of passage”, as did most of the other “Old School” Practitioners…and you know what? i am the better for it.To borrow from Mike C. -Just my opinion

Have you forgotten that I asked you point blank, if you had any financial, or any other connection to a certain product offering that you were actively schilling to newbie Posters on the ISix Fora (in open violation of the T.O.S.)? Have you forgotten that you dodged the question(s) for quite some time, finally answering in the affirmative, that you in fact, were involved, quite intimately with that offering from a financial and fillial standpoint. I’m not trying to paint you as a “bad guy”, nor do i think ill of you personally…i just do not personally like your actions on this fora and others related to business practices.Google-cache software is certainly not your friend… -Just my opinion.

    You might consider a small run, or fractional-factorial DOE. Personally, I’d baseline and affinitize your faxes by whatever category is important to you, or your Customer. It could be by Sender, or by affected product/service, or even by time/date stamp. If you have a spreadsheet and the data going back a year, try slicing and dicing by types within 1 month buckets and see what you see.

    Well Said, Stevo.Joyce, As with most things, polarization is bound to occur. It comes down to individual experiences. If embraced and applied appropriately with a generous dash of common sense, Six Sigma, Lean, TPS. Continuous Improvement in general, has the potential of yielding excellent results.Continuous Improvement seems to draw serious and intense feelings due to the effect of change on humans in general. Change is a hard pill to swallow for us humans.Personally, I’ve witnessed the success of Six Sigma, when done right…with amazing bottom-line results related to cost/quality/delivery/growth.
    I also see the other end of the spectrum in my current shop. Lip service and fake-Sponsorhip have been toxic to Six Sigma’s success here. So much so, that there is a full scale slaughter going on. The Veep is hunting down all vestiges of the toxic status quo and is trying to rebuild the initiative. Though painful, it’s the right thing to do.The outgoing Director should have brushed up on his Machiavelli…

    In support of Chad’s view, I would start at the beginning and characterize the current process capability. IOW, SPC. I would see what the initial data set reveals across all measures and for each cavity to gauge if a problem exists at all. The goal would be to see what’s happening in terms of within/between subgroup variation.
    Once done, then set up a DOE, or even a GR&R of the measurement devices/processes if you smell something fishy.

    I can, because I have data to prove it. What you don’t know is that I and several colleagues conducted an experiment in our respective towns to test the validity, rigor and whether or not affadavits were being verified. Bottom line: the experiment demonstrated a lack of rigor in the areas noted above, esp with regard to affidavit validation.

    Lisa-Marie,
    You are dead wrong on this issue. ASQ is a service and cert provider that is well known and respected for CQE/CQm, but their six sigma cert process is an abortive abomination. Their process is little more than a test-based, affadavit-dependant cert mill.Again, kudos to them for their CQE/CQM curriculum and cert processes, but they need to add some serious rigor. Having been in a position to hire BB’s those that came in only bearing ASQ BB failed to gain employment 100% of the time. Those that came in with solid industrial exp with 6S and had ASQ, did much better.

Poor quality is anathema to Sigmoidial Dispersion theory.3) I like to use the Astral project management model to make sure i don’t forget anything on this plane, or the other.4) QFD = Quesenberry-Fogerty Dilation which is another APM (Astral Project Model) for re-encabulative technique application. CTQ = Carter-Tavendish Quality index, which is used for predictive analysis of normal and non-normal Sigmoidial distributions. In addition, you should familiarize yourself with the Valenzetti Equation and it’s effects upon the Variable/Continental Shift methodology.Glad to help anytime!

    Tormented,
    If you can’t get your current Employer to train/cert to MBB standards within, then I would consider shopping around companies looking to fill an MBB spot. Demonstrate your proficiency and ability to Lead/interact/influence/execute across all levels of an organization and roll the dice. You might be hired in as an MBB. Do the work and show them your stuff.As for the paper? I wouldn’t waste time on an external, 3rd party cert at this point.

    Jon,
    I’d suggest benchmarking against firms with established standards. Most internal certs include a period of intruction, followed by monitored action (project(s)), a measure against “key behaviors” and a cert board, rather than a test. The Cert board would normally look for 3 main things:
    1) Does the Candidate know the material?
    2) have they applied it successfully via projects with bottom line results 9cost/quality/delivery)?
    3) Have they also demonstrated impactful Change Agency/Change mgmt principles?

    Removed and replaced is alot harsher than S&S, wherein these folks could have been rehabilitated and course corrected, saving them and their families much anguish. Even if you could have applied some tough love and onlu saved 10%, it is still worth it, no?wow…you are demonstrating both an ignorance of military structures and a callouseness towards helping folks to repair themselves. Everything we have been discussing on the “pro” side is aimed at teachable moments and ultimately, affording non-compliers with a wake up call and an opportunity to repair themselves. You just shuck Oysters and pile up the carcasses.

    HAH! nothing wrong with a good blended, mbb.
    Glenfidditch is a good single, but there is room for diversity in “Le Cafe Six Sigma and Jazz bar”.see Freddy? we can S&S and still be civil, because in the end, none of it matters, if the mantra of bottom line results isn’t drilled into our up and coming practitioners heads.

    MBBWIXYZ,
    hitting the Dewer’s on the rocks a bit early, no?
    Your recent posts don’t “sound” like the old MBBWIXYZ…they are a bit loosy-goosey, hippy dippy…remember to get a cab tonight.
    ;-)
    (that was sarcasm, freddy)

    Uh, MBB, I copied my response from Mr. Breyfogle and provided all copyright info and credit. I don’t like the 1.5 shift, but if you re-read the O.P., he asked for both…
    Plain and simple.

    Indeed karma is alive and well…it points in both directions.
    The forum has seen cycles of intelligent questioning and helpful answers as well as cycles of S&S, especially when dealing with lazy do-nothings who want spoon feeding to pass their University or ASQ-Style BB exams.We’ve all been through the ringer as newbies at one time or another, here and elsewhere. You should the behind the scenes email we trade. Whoo-wee!Your take on S&S in the workplace is interesting and naive. Continuous Improvement is not for the feint of heart and neither is this forum.It appears that as generations fall away, so to does the ability to cope with adversity. All things are cyclical, so we’ll get some thicker skinned practitioners in 10-20 years…if we are lucky.
    (oops, too sarcastic?)Thanks for your suggestions, however naive they are.

    This is ridiculous. You are not asking for guidance, but rather a specific solution set.God help us all if you pass ASQ BB.

    Calculating Sigma
    Defects Per Million Opportunities (DPMO) = ((Total Defects) / (Total Opportunities)) * 1,000,000
    Defects (%) = ((Total Defects) / (Total Opportunities)) * 100
    Yield (%) = 100 – (Defects Percentage)Process Sigma = 0.8406 + SQRT(29.37 – 2.221 * (ln(DPMO)))
    -or-
    Process Sigma = NORMSINV(1-((Total Defects) / (Total Opportunities))) + 1.5Reference: Breyfogle, F., 1999. “Implementing Six Sigma: Smarter Solutions Using Statistical Methods.” Second Edition – John Wiley & Sons.
