    I’m looking for some examples of how to tell a six sigma hack from an experienced, well-trained Black belt. Any takers?

    I would ask the person to provide samples of their work (like a portfolio) of the presentations, calculations, etc. they have done for each of the projects that they claim to have completed.Likewise, I would find myself a Master Black Belt (either hire one from one of the companies who have been doing Six Sigma or contract with one through a consulting firm). Generally, a MBB can tell when someone is blowing smoke or the real McCoy.I hope that this helps.Jim Johnson

    Hack — < 5 years experience riding on the coattail of a great company like GE
    Real thing — > 5 years verifiable experience at a Motorola, Toyota, AliedSignal, …

    Any certified Black Belt that passed a Six
    Sigma written exam with a reputable organization, completed at least to projects successfully (verified by a Qualified Master Black Belt) should be adequate evidence that the Black Belt is not a “six sigma hack”. Experience would depend on what it is that you want done at the end of the day, different people apply different standards before qualifying experience e.g. (number of years or number of projects completed)

    Please tell us who the reputable organisations are.
    Six Sigma Academy? What a joke
    ASQ? Ally of Six Sigma Academy
    Six Sigma Qualtec? All of their good people are gone
    GE? Worship at the alter of GE? I don;t think so
    So who are they?

    No need to tell you who they are…it appears you know it all!
