    I have completed my Black Belt training, at my own expense. The company I am working for says I am too busy to be working on Black Belt projects and will not give me any projects. I have started calling other companies in the area looking for projects to no avail. Anyone have an idea on how to get the projects I need to get certified by ASQ?

    Vinay,
    You might be confused between SS Project and Quality Improvement? In doing a project, you need a strategic planning in consideration of everthing most importantly now; COST.. Impromtu thinking are not to be considered a project. You are paid to show the after (MONEY $$) effect. Please be guided. 
    Project are define as definite formulated piece of research or plan undertaking. In doing a project you need to at least provide; Problem Statement, History, Objective and Goal, Cost Analysis (including ROI), Members, Action List, Analysis, Improvement Plan, Conclusion and etc.
    That’s the difference of SS among others quality methodologies. Don’t spread wrong analogy and impression in this forum.

    Ted,
    Wonderful. You have just pulled the string by yourself.
    You are already in the right approach by convicing your company and to look-ut to other company that might be interested for your SS project (practice). Anyway, the best way you could do is to convicnce your immediate superior and show to him/her the advantages of using SS by a simple presentation. Normally, if they are not aware on what are the benefits of using SS methodology, they really could have second thought. It is in a manner of presentation and delivery. Offer to your immediate boss, that you will be doing the project (with savings $$$) on your extra time with no additional cost to the company or compensation. You only need to get your boss approval and the support of your team member and whollla….
    Offer the same on the other company with the word “FREE”. Though it is much more difficult to do the project in other company due to culture and supporting, you can be creative in making an offer.
    You could also ask ASQ to help you on this matter.
