    Does your organization have a quality department?  If so, you may want to have a conversation with them.  Something like “I recently completed green belt training and I’d like the opportunity to tackle an issue that the organization currently has using a six sigma approach…”.  Don’t undersell yourself or think that you absolutely need a black belt mentor right from the start.  With any problem, you can flow through the DMAIC process starting with making sure you have a good definitive problem statement and then progressing to capturing additional information in your project charter.  Ensuring that you have an operational definition of the metric you are hoping to improve and then taking a data driven approach to getting a fully objective view of the problem, will probably show your organization the value even though you don’t really have advocates of the approach at your company.
