    American Society for Quality and Indiana Quality Council are good resources for training materials, both introductory and advanced. Do you have entry criteria for the training? Can you assume students have basic understanding of statistics, risk management, and root cause analysis? You need to know what starting level your typical students will have before you can choose, or any of us can recommend.

    I suggest that you do NOT teach the Six Sigma farce.

    Ohio State University has a pretty rigorous program but I think it is graduate level. I am sure if you contact them they can help you figure out what you need to know.

    @drab Farce? Maybe you need the “force”. :)

    @cseider You don’t want to get into a battle of wits with this guy. He is defenseless. He goes on ad nauseum about the 1.5 sigma shift which has never been a point of interest for me for about 20 years. He talks about control charts but obviously doesn’t understand that there all his little control charts in the Control Phase.

    The most pathetic part is he obviously doesn’t understand the idea of breakthrough versus Control as it was defined by Juran in 1964. You hang everything you think you know on a Control Chart which may work out well if you want no change since by definition control means “lack of change; maintaining status quo.” Basically if you process is operating in a suboptimal point he wants to slap a control chart on it to make sure it stays there. Only someone from academia would get into such a ridiculous argument.

    Yeh “force” of blatant stupidity.
    From its laughable foundations, every aspect of Six Sigma Stupidity is a bad joke … except of course, what psychologist, Harry called its “80% TQM”.

    Burns once again you choose to display for the world you complete ignorance. You stated (we all understand your proclivity to lie so remember this is written in your last post) “every aspect of Six Sigma Stupidity is a bad joke….” You obviously do not understand that the Control Phase is primarily driven by training on your beloved Control Charts?

    That said of course you had to resort to what appears to be what you consider your best argument. Calling names very much like a child in elementary school would do i.e. “blatant stupidity.” That is as good as you have? Nobody here cares about your 1.5 sigma shift nonsense and your rants about control charts (Dr. Wheelers thoughts of course, nothing original from you of course) makes you a one trick pony.

    Do us all a favor. Just go away until you can return (or not nobody really cares) with something constructive to add.
