    Hi!
    If I get certification done from any company like BMG for BB, how relevant is this certification in job search and what is the scope after the completion in India and abroad?
    Regards

    hey neha,
    It would be really good if you do your certification from BMG. U would need to ocmplete a BB project as well. Play the role of a BB for some time in your current organization. Then look for a change. The scope for a BB is tremndous. Both in India & abroad. You can join any industry: manufacturing, service: hotel, hospital, airline, banking, BPO, retail. Or you can also become a consultant after some experience!

    Neha…for your question 
    Honestly speaking – there is nothing much apart from an additional stuff on your CV…when somebody wants to hire you, he means business. First thing I would ask you (just like anyother hiring manager) is that, how many BB projects have you completed? what were the outcomes? what was the bottomline? any process improvement? re-engineering? and many more. A certification is just an additional xyz after your name. You need to have real time experience as a BB, SS implementaion, number of GBs mentored….and stuffs like that. What Aparna (next post) has mentioned may be true to lil’extent…however India already has too many BBs (including fly by night ones also) So more than the so called “tremendous scope”for BB cert, you need to master the art of SS before you say I am an SSBB!
    Try to get as many real time implementaion projects under your belt and then sell your self in the market as a BB…all the best…roger

    Thanks Roger and Aparna for your views. I understand the importance of experience but if I want to enter this field and make it my career I have to start from somewhere. So if I get BB certified then I hope this will help me in getting a good opportunity in this field ( does not matter if it is an entry level) because if I want to gain experience I need a strong base and a chance in a good company.I mean certification as well as experience.
    So is it that this certification is absolutely useless or does it help in getting job if I have knowledge.
    Pls guide me as I am planning to invest a lot of money in this.

    Hi Neha,
    Roger is absolutely right. Let me give you my example. I am Black Belt Six sigma cert from one of the Best institute in India. I am working in American Express.
    I am hopping for a job from past 15-20 days. However corporates are pulled toward my resume because of the Amex and Institute name, but they have some common question to ask, which disqualifies me:-
    How many real time projects are completed by me?
    Am I in Quality on papers in my current company?
    Most of them are asking for atleast 5 years of experience in same domain. I am ready to start as fresh like you. However Black belt role demands a regular communication b/w BB and senior managment and teams. So, corporates are not ready to take any risk..
    Black Belt qualification is to enhance the statistical knowledge and business understanding. However corporates need real time expereince as well.
    Hope I am able to make you aware of the business scenario in India. If you still have some doubts, you can drop in this forum or can mail me at abhishek.kapoor@rediffmail.com or can call me at 9871190069. i will be gald to help you.
    I understand the pain of all the people who wants to join the army and are not able to do because corporates want only experienced people. I don’t understand how to improve conditions in India?

    Hi Neha, in my view you need not invest more money for learning this Six Sigma as you can gain much knowledge thro’ your self study…you may require some help for understanding few statistical tech. like DOE / Hypo. but not only the certification helps. i joined in a leading software co. as a full time Six Sigma Black Belt without any certification but i had 9 years of manufacturing ind. exp. & I practiced all quality tools / techniques…now I’m a certified BB – you need to understand various business processes, customer expectations in each processes, failure modes, alternative thinking, possible solutions etc. these things will come once you gain some working exp. i would say that starting a career with Six Sigma without any exp. is a risky drive in our drive as we will not have any exp. in terms of process insight. please drop me a mail at ramesh.harimugundan@gmail.com in you have any queries.
