    I am looking for a project to start my black belt certification.

    After a discussion, my supervisor is trying to make me pick a project that needs solutions on very many fronts.

    I think that they are trying to push me to failure. Is there a way to screen it and find if it is a suitable project?

    Thank you

    Check this website. or google…but lots of advice out there.

    Basically, find a project with measurable results, a manageable size, identify team members with a project champion and find an impactful goal and start there.

    @geozor – A good approach would be to do a root cause analysis, identifying the several contributors to the issue (a fishbone diagram would be a good approach).ย  Categorize the several contributors as to their likely impact.ย  Then select the one that is the greatest contributor and go after improving it so that it either no longer is a contributor, or the contribution is lessened.ย  Then attack the next greatest contributor.ย  And so on.
