    The George Group is the main Lean Six Sigma certifier.  In their training, you gain all the principles of Lean and Six Sigma.

    Are you advertizing for the George Group or what? I know that it is a big name but are they really the best?

    Stan is right about the fact that anything related to Motorola is going to carry a lot of weight — especially if it’s from someone involved in the founding of SS or who worked with the founders of the initiative.
    Having certification from GE, Six Sigma Academy or American Society of Quality (ASQ) looks good as well.  There’s some dispute among many SS experts about ASQ certification but almost every SS job on Monster (as well as many on isixsigma) references it.

    Previous threads have established the credibility of Six Sigma Academy especially if you studied under Dr. Harry.  As the primary founder of Six Sigma as we know it, any association with him has to be of tremendous value.  Even some of the original Motorola guys learned from him.  And let’s not forget he was the one who divined the universal truth of the 1.5 shift.

    ASQ BB certification is not all that deep.  Requirements are to have 2 completed projects (with signed affidavit) or 1 completed project (with signed affidavit) and 3 years work experience within the Six Sigma BOK.  Oh, and you must pass their test.
    Best bet — regardless of the certifier, make sure your project portfolio is strong, showing that you have used the methodology and tools to really do something for your organization.

    Can’t say about Harvard, but Newton’s laws were, as were many other foundational scientific precepts, a little more elegantly stated and derived at Cal Berkeley, but other than that I’d agree with you.  Physics is physics and data are data – except for some of the 3.44 ppm “let’s postulate a science” crap.

    The bad news is that they are actually worse since he left. Imagine – snake oil when he is there, worse now.

    Hey Sigmordial, hope all is well.  I will be out your way next week.  Email me and let me know whether you will be around.  Would love to catch up and take advantage of the raincheck you owe me.

    That was that kinder, gentler, prettier Stan. Besides that, anyone dumb enough to go the MH/SSA route deserves what they get.
    I hear that the best implementations are taking place in Milwaukee and Cleveland and are led by some folks with Motorola / Deming roots. The best implementations have to have, by definition, the best trained people.

    Hello Folks,
    I got a black belt that holds my pants up (no suspenders yet) and a yellow belt and a green belt from 6S training that sit home someplace in back of some closet. 
    My black belt is the most important belt, ask the women who work with me.  But i use the tools I learned in training to earn these colorful belts.  But I am not impressed by belt colors.  Show me you can use the tools, show me your success projects, show me the projects you knew to walk away from as be scoped wrong and then I’ll be impressed all you reputed belts!
    Its not the belt color, or where you got it from..it is ……….can you use the tools…..
    Go Pats!
    Later,
    Billybob

    Learning is very much dependent on the individual. I am trying to find out the the BB certification with the highest “Market Value” . Hope that makes my question clearer.

    Boy are you wrong!
    Where you obtain your training is critical. It is critical because there are many “wanna be” consultasnt types that claim six sigma knowledge but never deliver the goods.
    Next would be your personal vigor with which you apply the tools you learned.
