    Hey Stan . . . I have to agree with you.  Unfortunately, I think we’re at one of those familiar historical improvement crossroads where people are gracefully bowing out of Lean/Six Sigma and becoming attracted to repackaged improvement methodologies and tools under a new buzzword slogan.  To justify the new names, people are talking about the shortfalls of Six Sigma (As if their failures are “Six Sigma’s” fault).  There’s a dozen or more labels for Lean and Six Sigma showing up in the  Linkedin discussion groups.  Green Lean, Diet Six Sigma, Continuous Process Optimization, etc. etc.  If only people focused more on execution and results vs. “Belts & Buzzwords.”  The last thing we need is a different ribbon on the same box.

    I am sure there is training material available for it on line and then there will be another company that will certify you to the new standard. There will be no direct links between the companies except the last names of the management.

    Isn’t it ironic that reducing variation is a core ideology of SS – and now we have a variety of SS approaches popping up:Lean Six Sigma
    Diet Six Sigma
    Classic Six Sigma
    New Six Sigma
    Vanilla Six Sigma
    Cherry-flavored Six Sigma (with Antioxidants!)

    I did find a reference to “Diet Six Sigma”:
    blogs.isixsigma.com/…/six_sigma_diet_or_lifestyle_change.html
    As described in the blog, “Diet Six Sigma” is not a marketing gimmick.  To say much more would spoil the blog entry for everyone.

    Amazing. Someone posts a non-sensical statement and everybody goes off on it without qualifying anything.
    The Blog is titled “Six Sigma: Diet or Lifestyle Change”. Nobody said anything about “Diet Six Sigma”… but then the commentors didn’t care, did they? They commented on it anyway.
    So, Roopa, where did you first hear about it? Care to site a reference?

    Johnson,Below is the opening paragraph from the original blog. Bottom line is that the concept of diet and lifestyle change was used as a metaphor for SS deployments. Some organizations like the quick hit aka diet loss via a grapefruit or onion soup approach while others actually change their eating habits and lifestyle and thus have long term sustainable results. Much like SS deployments. It is not another variation of SS although this person tried to move it in that direction:http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/the-keeping-it-real-guide-to-six-sigma-lite-%28without-the-statistics%29/298928″Sounds like this organization is having a tough time changing old habits. Much like the latest weight loss fad, short-term success can be realized but sustainable results will require a lifestyle change. So what is the difference between a Six Sigma diet and lifestyle change? Here’s what I say . . .”

    Darth, I fully understand.
    My comment had to do with Roopa being way off base with “Diet Six Sigma” then everybody assuming what that was and knocking variations of SS training – when, this has nothing to do with that.
    And, Chuck, I have no idea what your comment means.

    Go away, Chuck. Come in with non-contributory little quips that benefit no one.

    Condescending, paternalistic admonishments are contributory to what and benefit whom?

    Actually it’s “…benefit who?”, Chuck.

    Excellent correction B Johnson. It seems we have someone with the propensity to hyper-correct, which indicates his lack of clarity with the subjective and objective cases of English.Jolly good show ol’ chap.Ghost Rider
