GB and BB Projects for Certifications
- June 9, 2018 at 2:26 pm #56015
I am going to start Green Belt theory and certification soon and planning on getting my black belt. I am concerned that an organization will not want an outsider mentoring a project that will have sensitive information directly relating to their company.
How do you get around that with an employer?
If you need to do a project or two to get proper certification (mr miyagi style) can the certification provider, provide an internal case or two for the candidates?
Meaning you dont need to do a real life project with your current organization you can do a project that is provided by the issuer?/

Some certifying bodies allow you to do a simulated project, that they provide, but I can’t recommend that. To get around the sensitive information issue you’ll need for you, the company, and the certifying body to sign non-disclosure agreements. It can be done but it’s a royal pain. An alternative is to do a project for a non profit. A few years ago my ASQ section did one for a local charity as our annual service project. None of us used it for certification but we could have since it was successful and well documented.June 13, 2018 at 9:30 am #202661
@raiden I have had several Belts on projects over the years that have Top Secret classifications. Normally what they do is code the data before I am allowed to see it. I was never allowed to take anything into the conference room with me such as a computer, cell phone, memory stick, etc.
As Strayer said you want at least NDA’s in place. Security clearances are a whole different level but you still need them.
