    Stephen,
    You just connected with one, despite Fake’s sarcasm. Don’t blame him, he is a decent guy. I suspect he is just a little tired tonight.
    So, how do you select a star? Well, I am not sure there is such a thing but I will give you my advice, in no order of importance:

    How well are your candidates respected by the group and group managers?
    How knowledgably are your candidates of the group?
    How well have your candidates performed in delivering successes on past projects (within or outside of the group)?
    If they do not have project experience yet, then how respected are they buy their trainers, fellow trainees, mentors, and you?
    How proactive are they? Do they have a history of sticking to timelines?
    How urgent are they to leave the group once they complete a single project? That is, are they willing to stick around and see the group’s overall success improve before moving on to greener pastures?
    Those are just a few thoughts. Please take them for what they are and who they come from. If I can offer more help, simply ask.
    Good Luck,
    Dr. Scott

    thank you for your advise, I do apreciated it . I’m six sigma junior manager for one of small group and we still under the first stage cause we launched out six sigma activities within whole group just one year ago. The purpose of six sigma star are policies designed to encourage someone who did good performacnce on six sigma. I’m not sure do you have any operable matrix or excel file to screen out it? or should I prepare it by myself ?

    Fake,
    Seriously, i have a question for you. Which formula would you choose for determining the degrees of freedom say on a t-test with unequal variances? There are at least three I have found, and the consequences on the outcome between the three are minimal. But I don’t get the assumptions behind them. Just a nagging thing that keeps me awake at night.
    Thanks in Advance for your help,
    Dr. Scott

    Stephen,
    I would recommend you take the criteria (questions) I suggested, along with others that might reflect the culture of your company. Then rate each candidate on each criterion, and weight each on the importance to you or your company. Multiply the importance by the rating on each criterion and add the results for each candidate.
    In other words, build your own matrix. I have a couple, but they are copyrighted by the companies that developed them, so I can’t share. Plus, the spreadsheets I have would be of little use to you now unless they were used during the development of your BBs.
    Good Luck,
    Dr. Scott

    I would add to look for the one who is the natural mentor. That is the
    one who helps the others understand concepts and applications.Mike Carnell was the most natural in this role I have ever seen. Let’s
    get his take on this as well.

    Dear Dr.Scott
    I  really  don’t  know.All  I  can  say  that the  t-test is  a  Hypothesis  test for the “mean”  and  not  (as  you  said  ) for  the  variance.For  the  variance  we  should  use  the Chi-Square (X^2) test.Fot r  the  t-test  we  use  the  following formula t=X-bar minus “Mu”(Mean) divided  by S (samples sd)/n (r.sq.),where  for the  Ch-Sq. we  use  the  following  formula:(n-1)S^2 Divided by Sigma^2 (Sigma  stands  for Process  sd).
    I  hope  that  helps ,if  you  wish  I  may  elaborate  that  through  a  practical  example.
    Best  Regards

    Fake,
    I was asking your opinion on calculating the degrees of freedom when variance is assumed to unequal. I was just curious as to what was behind the different approaches used by different software packages and different trainers. No biggie, just different ways to calculate d.f. I guess.
    Thanks Anyway,
    Dr. Scott

    Stan,
    Good point. Similar to what I was trying to convey, but you made the point more straightforward.
    Regards,
    Dr. Scott
