    Looks like somebody is a fan of David Drake and Hammer’s Slammers – shades of the short story Under the Hammer.  ;-)

    Never heard of it…just an abbreviated fire support call-for-fire.
    Didn’t want to flame the kid…trying to change my ways and give him a friendly heads-up that indirect fire will be heading his way.

    Andy, Good afternoon!
    Thanks for your posting.
    What what the topic of your Black Belt certification project(s)?  Do you leverage that in your resume and / or cover letter when you are looking for Six Sigma positions?
     
    Best regards,

    Tip on job search

    Andy,
    One thing that you should review in a job description is if the company requires a BB certification or if it says “BB certification preferred”. If it says the latter, chances are that the company is looking for someone that has the potential to become a black belt and the company will train you. In this case, don’t worry too much about the technical skill and sell your interpersonal skills. Many organizations who hire certified BBs even require them to attend their trainings as organizations deploy six sigma very differently. The easy part of Six Sigma is the memorization of the t-test etc.
    Don’t get dishearted by the likes of HGBB etc. Look at their posts when it comes to “technical questions”. They’re statistical feather weights who know the slogans and repeat the kind of questions a parrot can ask: What do the data say? What do the data say? What do the data say? They’re simply not credible … and all that they have to offer is a BB certificate. BIG DEAL and maybe some financial spreadsheets of “successful projects” that document tons of funny money that they supposedly saved! The newest thing to brag about today is obviously the passing of a CQE exam … how pathetic is that for the crown of an educational achievement! Good luck … you’ll be alright. .
