    Have just heard that GE Money announced last week they are suspending all Lean/Six Sigma training and certs. Does anyone on the forum know whether this is true? If so, is it a GE-wide decision?

    Six Sigma and it’s rebranding has been dead at GE for a couple of years.
    GE’s training has been diluted to point of ineffectiveness. Black Belt training is 2 weeks of mostly tool training, with little emphasis on how to get things done. The last week is basic change management training, again mostly generic theories.
    Master Black Belts and Black Belts have been relinquished to the lowly roles of data gathers and reporters for the corporate fads of a pathetic Net Promoter Score and OTR initiative.It would be a wise move to kill the program and all it’s overhead.

    Is it me, or do I sense some level of dissatisfaction with the GE SS effort?  Now that BOA’s SS program resides under IT, maybe it can follow your advice and save a bunch of overhead dollars to lower the high bank fees.

    Be real needs to get real with his information.  So you think the last week of training is just change management and generic theories for BB classes??  If you think these theories are generic, then why are they emulated all over the world?  Hmm, i don’t think they are generic.  Have you even gone through the training?  It doesn’t seem like you have.  As for you thinking that GE BBs and MBBs are relegated to lowly data gathering jobs, you must have very bad resources.  I’m actually insulted by this comment.  I am a OTR SS BB for one of the GE businesses in Asia and I can bet that our BB’s responsibilities to drive Quality and Customer Satisfaction are as contributing to the organizations success as any BB out there.  Can you say that your savings goal for the fiscal year  was $6MM?
    If you were never a GE BB, then don’t talk smack about something you may have heard second hand.  If you’ve been a GE BB, then you’re about to get fired for incompetence.

    Aj, please!!!
    GEs Six Sigma success has run it’s course. Past performance isn’t an indicator of future success, take a look at your stock price.Sorry to hear you’re OTR gig, my condolences. Don’t worry, you will hit your number, everyone at GE finds a way to do so. It sounds as if you’re banking on having career based on you’re association with the big GE six sigma. whoa!

    It is sad to hear that GE is moving to the direction of stopping its SixSigma legacy. I was a former GE employee in Asia and I found that the six sigma training was the best training for knowledge that I have ever attended. To GE gb,bb,mbb, do not get insulted on what other people comments. What you have now (the six sigma knowledge) will remain in you. My advice is IMPROVISED. Continue making changes. It is what you do best.

    Not all businesses are discontinuing SS certifications.  It is up to the individual business to make that decision.  My division has chosen to continue certifying and has increased the rigor and training around its entire program. 
    Observations about GE’s SS cycle (my business specific):  While we have gone from a completely SS based program to a more Lean focused approach, we were only able to get there because of the initial SS efforts.  Now that we have spent a few years Leaning, we are trending back towards SS as we will not be able to make anymore cost reductions without defect reduction.
