    Have any of you read the articles to the left the Forum? I don’t know what your impressions are, but I found them to be very “boney” – most of the articles were simply piles of rules and tips. Why can’t the authors provide some results of the projects they have claimed to have accomplished?

    Because they don’t have to. These articles are very informative and educational. Write something and put it there.

    Those that refuse to learn will always find some disqualifier for those that teach. “Knowledge only comes in from the outside, and only by invitation.:”  A quote from some old dead guy that was famous, and not listened to until late in his life . . . Well, one country listened, and they are still kicking our behinds in auto sales and quality.

    Yes, they don’t have to. But there are so many people out there who claim to be consultants and BBs and can deliver results, I have to see the results first before I would listen to them.

    The students delivered the results – not the teacher

    I think the line is, “The students delivered the results – not the teacher, grasshopper.”

    That is true, but the students learned from Deming. Speaking of Deming, why we are talking about SS here?

    Yeah, I guess you’re right.  Nothing Deming did applies to Six Sigma.

    Wasn’t Mozart deaf, or was that Beethoven?

    Actually, it was the Zil, which rhymes with “nil”, which is a good count of their exports.  ;-)

    Neither. And they both made a name in the history not because they claimed how great they were but because people like their work, the results they delivered!

    Actually, Beethoven did become deaf later in life…

    Heebeegeebee BB,
    If the BB stands for anything, you would not say “completely”. Please don’t make the SS thing into some sort of cult, or joke…I do see many BBs here who are trying to make things better.
    As for “Beethoven did become deaf later in life…”, it was you who missed the point of the previous post. That guy tried to make personal insult on me.

    Mozart,
    This is NOT a personal insult on you.  But, Heebeegeebee BB is a BB (which stands for Black Belt) that is (and has for a long time) been trying to make things better here on this forum.
    …sorry for the “insult”, Heebeegeebee!!!

    HornJM or Heebeegeebee,
    Sorry, I am not sure which is your name, but please go back to read my post again, and carefully, before trying to response.

    It was Beethoven who became deaf and blind by the time he composed his last composition.

    As reticent as I am to become involved in this tacky little fracas – I feel compelled to point out that as far as forum insultants are concerned you folks are rank amateurs.   You haven’t referenced mothers, daughters, the disabled, or even called upon deities to smite each other and many of us are truly embarrassed that those new to or simply passing through the forum might think this is the best vitriol haranguing a Six Sigma professional is capable of.

    Welcome to the “kinder, gentler” forum for 2006!  Some of us prefer to mainain a certain level of our professionalism, dignity and respect.  If you want down and dirty, disparage not, I am sure there will be plenty coming to a thread in the near future.

    It was not nearly so much wanting down and dirty as hoping that you didn’t think you were already there.   Looking at the long legacy of forum interaction a little professionalism here and there, while new and taking some getting used to, probably won’t hurt.

    Mozart:

    Mozart:I read them, and I’ve even written a bunch. Two or three are
    rated pretty high when I go ‘Google ego-surfing’. The most popular one is
    simply a long list of SS project ideas and examples with no mention of tool
    usage or hypothesis tests. If you just want some results from me, I can give
    you results; over $200MM in cumulated cost benefits and eight years of
    experience in assisting companies and project teams in executing hundreds of projects.The iSixSigma editors are responsible for soliciting,
    screening and editing the articles for content and length. Other factors
    include respecting confidentiality; companies are generally hesitant to admit
    having severe problems with their processes. The editors must strike a balance
    between the perpetual requests for “an example of a project that is
    exactly the same as the one I intend to do” and useful lessons learned
    and advise to practicing BBs for things to watch out for in the future.I submit a long list of titles of articles with a short
    paragraph description to the editorial staff. They rank my submission list
    against the needs of the customers (you and zillions of other people) and
    return the list to me. I write the articles according to the guidelines provided,
    then they are edited and reviewed by a panel before publication.Feel free to write and submit some articles you would
    like to read, chances are there are other who would appreciate your effort and
    benefit from your experience.Cheers, BTDT P.S. I admit, though, that about half the articles are below
    average (statistical rim shot).

    BTDT,
    You are one of the few contributors here whom I respect. I agree with what you said. Thanks for your response. I was only trying to make a suggestion…

    Mozart:There are always Salieris about…. seriously, think about submitting an article or two. We would all welcome a summary of the pitfalls encountered in a project over an advertisment for consulting services.Cheers, BTDT

    Salieri – gone but not entirely forgotten.
     
    Rest in peace! Uncovered by dusteternity shall bloom for you.Rest in peace! In eternal harmoniesyour spirit now is dissolved.He expressed himself in enchanting notes,now he is floating to everlasting beauty.

    Mozart – gone, but not forgotten, yet not entirely right.
     
    Wonderful homage painted by you both in your discourse, and BTDT $200M saved certainly adds statistical significance and relevance to your articles.

    First off Mozart,
    I am definitely not HornJM.
    Flying Circus Sigma:   Try searching for the answer to your question.   A troll once baited me to post this info, so I did.
    Have a good day.

    If I were you I’d take HeeBee’s word for his results – he has certainly achieved not only incredible and tangible results but also is a master at change management and culture shift.  HeeBee gets my respect and if you knew him you would also.
    Adam
    Oh – and if you want to pick at my results I’m open to share too !
