    I’ve just finished my B.tech biotechnology in India and now i’m thinking of doing six sigma privately by joining the Black belt certification course..(BMG)..I’m pretty ignorant and Would appreciate if someone could brief me on the qualities required for being a trainee.Is anyone is capable of doing a black belt training?
    Thank you,
    John.PS: was interested after reading up on Six sigma-Power of Six sigma, Subir chowdhury

    John,
    As you look at this site, on the left hand side in the blue bar you will find “New to Six Sigma”. In this tab is some good information. As far as anyone being able to do Six Sigma? Yes, a basic understanding of statistics and experience in the field you wish to practice in, will make your training much easier, but neither is a requirement. I highly recommend you start at the Green Belt level and work some projects to gain experience before jumping into the Black Belt level. It is not impossible to go straight to BB Level, but experience far outways training and will make a much more effecient Practioner.
    Just my Opinion

    You can do anything you want…………Like anything else in life, if you apply yourself to acheive that goal it can happen. Six Sigma professionals tend to earn more salary than non SS, so I would advise going for it. The right company can make it very rewarding, the wrong company can make it miserable. I have worked bot sides.

    You started out:
    “..I’m pretty ignorant and Would appreciate if someone could brief me on the qualities required for being a trainee”
    Then you posted:
    “i forgot to mention one small thing..I’d like to do six sigma as a Career??”
    The logic in that absolutely floors me. You don’t know what it is but you want to do it as a career? How does someone make a decision like that?

    Sir its not that i don’t know what six sigma is…..As far as i know most people in this forum have many years of work experience and have probably done masters or mba.
    I wanted to know whether it would be advisable to directly jump after my basic btech biotechnology into a private six sigma course and take it up as a career, because on one side i don’t have any experience of working in a company.I just finished my college.
    Pardon me for being vague..

    John,
    Get a biotechnology job, learn how things are done in the biotechnology business, and observe the inefficiencies and error-likely procedures in the biotechnology business.  Also observe what it takes to change a  business procedure.  Once you have done that for a few years, you can decide if you want to make a career of process improvement.
    Side benefit:  You will be much more credible as a process improvement person if you have significant experience as a worker yourself.

    Sir does that mean i have to limit myself into a biotechnology process improvement person
    That point of view is quite interesting though…
    On my side its difficult for me to get a biotech job right now especially without a masters..

    John, I am sorry you can’t get a job in your chosen profession. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you take an online Six Sigma class or read a book on it. Then you can easily get a job in the Six Sigma profession because any idiot can do six sigma. You should conclude that from many of the postings on this website. There is nothing better for destroying a profession than having a bunch of hacks hanging out shingles and claiming to be experts after a few minutes of training and experience.
