    Dear Friends,

    I would first thank all of you for such answers and responses

    I have graduated with MSc in trade, logistics and transportation

    During my 1st year experince as customer care and outbound logistics manager I have decided to go through Phd in lean six sigma

    I really appreciate to recieve an advise about name and addresses for some universities that works in that field

    Thanks

    Hi Kamal,

    it’s great that you’re interested in Lean Six Sigma.  I don’t think a Phd is necessary.  Depending upon the improvement tools and methods that you choose to use, some statistical knowledge is helpful.  You can also implement Lean Six Sigma without statistics, but basic analytical techniques are necessary.  I recommend SSD Global’s online program.  You can attend training sessions in person or online.  You can find more information here, I tried the link and there seems to be some kind of problem with the website (Sunday 8/25/19).

    Since the website is having a temporary issue, I recommend the book Leaner Six Sigma, written by SSD Global’s CEO Terra Vanzant-Stern.

    Black Belt Certification is a great way to get started in Lean Six Sigma.  If you anticipate that you’ll be teaching others, you may want a Master Black Belt Certification.

    Good luck! -jw

    Thanks Joe

    I am happy to receive that

    You touched the right point, in addition to teach others I am looking to get an academic degree along with it

    Thanks

    @kamal1974 You probably want to check out the Program at Ohio State University at the Fisher College of Business.

    I have not looked into what is going on at Notre Dame but there seems to be a lot of discussion around a program there. I think Bill Hathaway who started Moresteam is involved there as well.
