       BBm as the key power in six sigma implementation, play a main role in six sigma management. I think everyboday invoived in six sigma management want to be a real excellent BB. But I mean is real excellent BB,  not the paper BB whihc only passed the BB examination( In china, it is easy to pass the examination even you have no real six sigma experiments but only theoretic knowledge. Also the ASQ, my one friend which only get the internal BB training and just on going his frist BB project got the ASQ BB certification).
         Then what is real excellent BB? What is the real/important role BB take in organization? How can we be a real excellent BB?          1¡¢What is the real role of BB in organization?
            Just do the project whihc selected by MBB and function leader or need more functions?    2¡¢What is a real excellent BB?      Comapring to the paper BB, what is a real excellent BB? How should be evaluate a real excellent BB? What and waht degree should a BB do to became a real excellent BB?    3¡¢After the discussion above two, let us go to operation issue, how can we be a real excellent BB?

    Want to be an Excellent BB !!!!!!!?????????
    Forget getting into Management – you need to step into the shoes of Leadership.  There is a huge difference between Managers and Leaders.  Poor BBs are Managers, Excellent BBs are true Leaders !!!

    Super BBs are businessmen who employ all poor and excellent BBs. Watch “The Apprentice” TV show to enlighten yourself on who is super BB.

    start up a new project and use six sigma to solve it. I did alot of project in college. I advice you to take this courses at local college for six sigma. statistical quality control.This will lead to six sigma. Quality measurement, and few mores.

    Doesn’t need it unless he is working in the US and he is expected to write gramatically correct, coherent documents.  Then again, we have many US posters who have shown it isn’t needed to post on isixsigma.

    It’s not really true. English is a main language used in office in my place though English is a second (may be third) language taught in school. Many local graduates remain unemployed due to poor command of English.

    Yet, you seem to be gainfully employed so your thesis does not hold up.

    The Case for Leadership
    Leadership is often the most important factor in a Lean Manufacturing implementation. The paradigm shift of Lean Manufacturing demands visionary leadership.
    Visionary leadership is quite different from management. The necessary qualities for it may lie deep inside the human psyche. But even visionary leadership can be learned.
    Managers Versus Leaders
    Managing and leading are quite different. Very few people can play both roles with distinction. This is why many great military leaders developed a strong supporting staff. MacArthur, Patton and Rommel, for example, had exceptionally good staff officers to detail and support their visionary plans.
    Leaders establish new and radical visions. They bring vision to reality with shared values that gain commitment.
    Managers work within a system to maintain existing goals and direction. They generally use reward and punishment to gain compliance.
    Successful organizations need both managers and leaders. Firms with long periods of past success, such as the American automobile industry, have special problems.
    During periods of success, management is highly valued and true leadership is often discouraged. When the external environment (markets, technology, social structure) changes the organization cannot adapt new visions to cope. This is why large firms with successful histories have the most difficulty with Lean Manufacturing.
    Leadership Style
    Much is often made of leadership style. Note the wide range of styles in these successful military leaders:

    George S. Patton

    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Ulysses S. Grant

    Robert E. Lee
    One would find an equally wide range of styles in failed leaders. The conclusion is that style does not determine success or failure for leaders with formal authority.
    Peer leadership is another matter. Peer leaders have no official authority. They lead through casual mechanisms such as respect, knowledge, and rapport. Peer leadership is increasingly important in today’s informal, fluid organizations.
    For peer leadership, the quiet style of a Robert E. Lee is far more effective than the bombastic style of a Patton. Try walking into a process improvement meeting with a pearl-handled revolver and riding crop. Your next stop will be the psycho ward.
    But, If style does not matter, what does? The U.S. Army’s Charismatic Leadership model provides some answers.
    The Charismatic Model
    Successful leaders in all fields and situations exhibit a common behavior pattern. They:

    Challenge The Status Quo

    Create A Compelling Vision

    Establish Shared Values

    Enable Others To Act

    Model The Way

    Encourage The Heart
    Charismatic leaders do these things constantly in large and small ways. Cumulatively, these actions change attitudes, responses and methodologies within the organization.
    More Information
    This page is the first in a series on Leadership. See the links below for other pages. Our upcoming page, Charismatic Leadership, will have much more on this topic in a few weeks. At “Leadership Lessons From Twelve O’clock High” you can download a wonderful article on this paradigm by Major Attila Bognar of the U.S. Army.
    Shakespeare used leadership as the theme for many of his best plays. Our new page, “Shakespeare on Leadership” shows how King Henry V fits the Charismatic Model.
    Learning From The Movies
    Movies are a great way to learn about leadership. Just watching, however, will add little insight. This learning requires structure and active reflection. Our upcoming web page “Hollywood on Leadership” will summarize the lessons from several great films.
    Our seminar “Team Leadership” uses clips from several movies as a learning tool.

    Hi Tony, Adam,
    Just thought you might be interested on the following books on leadership :
    1. The Fifth Discipline : The Art and Style of a Learning Organization
    2. Heroic Leadership
    3. Management of the Absurd
    4. Mind of a Manager, Soul of a Leader
    Hey Adam, i saw from what you posted about learning from films. I really liked “Crimson Tide”  and “Glory” as a good cases on leadership style. I also recommend, Star Trek Voyager Series.
    ’nuff said .. ciao …
