    Is there a directory of iSix Sigma certified professionals? Online or  hardcopy?
    Also, I see that an informal list of companies with iSix Sigma programs has been listed, is there something more formal – especially for the companies that have introduced iSix Sigma plus programs?
    Thanks.

    Hi Sandra,
    iSixSigma is the name of the company that runs this portal. Six Sigma is the name of the methodology that is being discussed on this portal. To my knowledge, there is no complete list of companies implementing Six Sigma within their business/organization because the degree of implementation varies from business to business. iSixSigma maintains one of the most comprehensive lists on the Internet because it is updated constantly by practitioners (see Q&A Who section for list). This site also maintains a list of consulting companies that will help a company implement Six Sigma (see Consultants section).
    To your original question, is there a directory of certified Six Sigma professionals, the answer is no. “Pay me $X and I’ll certify you” — that’s the problem with Six Sigma lately, everyone’s in it for the bucks. There are some great Six Sigma consulting companies that truly get it, and then there are others that don’t. Requirements vary, so “certification” by itself doesn’t mean much today. It’s your work experience and application to the business that matters.
    Hope that tyrant helps!

    Thanks John. 
    I have been doing some due diligence and quickly came to same conclusion.  Is this also true of those who have attained black and green belt status as well?

    I’m not sure what you mean by “is this also true…”. Black Belt certifications can be attained from a couple of not for profit organizations in the US, as well as numerous consulting companies. Master Black Belt certifications are typically only attained by consulting companies or companies that have a mature Six Sigma environment (e.g.GE, Motorola, Honeywell, etc.). Green Belts are typically only attained by individuals from a company that is doing Six Sigma (no consultants or non-profits certifying, yet).
