    Hi All

    I am an Six Sigma Black Belt (ASQ). Having considerable experience in manufacturing and IT industry. I am interested in setting up my own consulting in UK. I wanted to know is this market already saturated with LEAN/Six Sigma consultants and what would be the initial hurdle one could expect.

    I have a business model and could compete on cost.

    Looking forward to the reply.

    I don’t believe the market is saturated in UK yet but there are an awful lot of consultants pushing Lean Six Sigma Consultancy without demonstrating any qualifications to do so. The Black Belt is probably a minimum requirement along with evidence of areas you have worked or consulted so far. Other than that I’d suggest you need a network of contacts to try and get some work.

    @bluesheep Hey if you have that business model and can compete on cost then you should go for it. I would ignore the fact that in most of the contracts that are getting negotiated by experienced companies/people the discussion is around ROI and results. There will always be that part of the market that purchases on cost and wonders why the results aren’t there. This would just be a suggestion but you might consider a company logo of Very bright red, 6 inch stiletto heels.

    Just my opinion.

    It is my observation that a lot of consultancies are combining pieces of various disciplines and selling services as general ‘process improvement’. I am also here in the midwest, and some of the people knocking on our door have been mixing Lean, SS, TRIZ, and standard PMP type offerings and roles. I believe this points to the need for consultants to expand their toolkit to compete as BBs become more commonplace.
