    There are many books out there on Six Sigma.  Don’t take offense, but since you are new, I would suggest the Six Sigma for Dummies book because it is very easy to read. 
    I would also suggest that unless you are a Minitab guru, try to get enrolled in Minitab classes.  Minitab has a series of classes.  I would highly recommend the first four days (intro, basic statistics, SQA, Factorial Designs).
    Of course you can also go to Green Belt or Black Belt training through one of any number of consultants.  I think the quality of the training varies considerably.  I would suggest that you BB certify through ASQ.  You can visit ASQ’s website to find out the requirements.  They actually don’t have a specific training requirement, but you must be able to pass their test.

    karthik,
    It seems odd that you would decide to spend the rest of your career as a Six Sigma Professional when you don’t understand what it is.
    There are no prerequisits. The “New to Six Sigma” will not qualify you as a belt but it may help you make an informed decision about the rest of your career.
    There is only one way you will ever know if you really want to do this as a Black Belt and that is to work projects – the implementation side will always be more difficult than the stats side. That will test your intestinal fortitude.
    The only way you will really understand if you want to be a career Master Black Belt is if you do projects, mentor people, institute change, and train people concurrently and enjoy it. It would seem to make more sense if you were planning a career in Six Sigma to find your way to an MBB position. You can shape the deployment rather than a project. It will take some form of formal training.
    Good luck

    all sixsigma people I’ve meet till now, are always happy, relaxed and proud. I’ve never meet sixsigma people stressed, or unhappy. for this reason everybody, and myself, want be sixsigma people.

    student,
    This may seema little perverse but if you are in the middle of a change initiative and are always happy and relaxed then there may be three different things going on independently or interacting 1. Prozac 2. Zoloft 3. you just don’t give a s__t.
    Most belts cycle there are good days and bad days just like everything else and a little stress is good for you.
    Depending on the program most people who have been certified where projects are concerned have a very good reason to be proud.
    Just my opinion.
    Good luck

    Doc,
    Good to see you posting again.
    I believe there is a strong cause and effect relationship between #1 and #3. I think student is describing people who are emotionally constipated and they are time bombs.
    I just moved to the Texas coast so it is time for you to show up with your boat so I can repay that dinner I owe you from Chicago.
    Via con dios, mi amigo,
    Mike

    I have always divided the world into those that like and embrace the unknown and those that don’t. The world described by student has none of the former in it. Those folks will need the latest tranquilizers.
    Student should get a job in government.

    Stan,
    If the Belts he has known worked in organizations that actually held people accountable for reults and were given projects that did not have known solutions there should be some level of stress (as opposed to fear). I have never known a good belt (and many average belts) that skipped through life giggling as they do projects. Those would be candidates for #3.
    Just my opinion.
    Regards

    South Africa. Achbishop Desmond Tutu came out to the mine and community to see what was happening. Actually got to meet him. Very awesome.
    When you imagine what he went through in terms of change it gives you less patients with the guys that constantly whine about not being able to accomplish anything without management support. They moved a nation and these guys can’t move a process?
    Regards

    I can’t imagine what the Archbishop went through. We have thought we have done some awesome things at times – brings us back to reality.
    It must have been neat to meet him.
    You should ask him to do PI.

    Very much like Blanden described meeting Deming. You can’t say much because you get caught in the aura of the man.
    I never thought about PI. That could be interesting. Create a profile for Nobel Peace Prize winners?
