    I work for a Research focused small scale manufacturing pharma. company. I have been put on a team to initiate Six Sigma at our site and have been put in charge of drafting criteria sheets for both Black Belts, and Green belts.
    Does anyone have any examples or templates of what would make good criteria sheets for both BB/GB’s?
    Right now the only thing I have to go by is the general qualities looked for in Green/Black belts, and current “project manager” job descriptions to try and put togeather info on qualities like:
    EDUCATION
    PROFESSIONAL SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

    PERSONAL SKILLS & COMPETENCIES
    MAIN TASKS
    KEY TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
    I would apreciate any input or examples on how to go about drafting two seperate criteria sheets on BBs/GBs

    Pyzdec and Breyfogle have sections in their books describing attributes required and duties performed by BB/GB personnel.  I’m sure any other “How to implement six sigma” book will have similar sections.
    Education and professional skill requirements are going to be highly variable.  Asking for a CSSBB might be a start.  However, knowing cGMPs or pharmacokinetics may not help when attempting to implement QbD or DFSS in an old-style formulation research group.  Likewise, your main / key tasks are going to depend on how your company wants those positions to function (ex part time, full time, level of support).
    For GBs, schedule a good consulting firm and start training interested existing in-house personnel.  Give them lots of love and support.  Make sure the projects your group identifies transparently support the company’s strategic goals and have been appropriately prioritized / supported.

    I think thats a good start for right now and the type of info i have already been gathering. Im just unsure of what kind of format to put this all in. My company does not have any kind of formal or informal documentation besides job descriptions for project managers and such.
    Any ideas on how to draft some professional looking criteria for these two six sigma belts?
    Thanks for any advice/help you guys can provide.

    How about a spreadsheet/matrix with candidates’ names along the left, and criteria along the top, and a weak-to-strong (maybe, -3 to +3) scoring system.  This way it looks like a report card and can be used to actually evaluate people for the job.
    I would emphasize leadership and interpersonal skills, as well as enthusiasm and general technical aptitude.  Particular technical skills can be learned.

    Well right now we do not have any candidates and we need to setup these criteria sheets in order for people in our small company to know what we are looking for. We do not even have a black belt yet and are in the beginning stages of setting this system up. We will be having the top six sigma Master black belt from out headquarters in Europe come over to train and help push everything along.Right now I need to find a format just for the optimal criteria we want in candidates applying for these BB/GB positions.I looked at our available company head count right today and it seems we will only have 1 BB, and 5-6 GB to head operational excellence/improvement projects.Thanks again for all this great infoDoes anyone have versions of what good criteria sheets would look like. I would hate to hand in a simple WORD document with just some bullet points outlining the qualities we want.

    I imagine that first a criteia sheet of some sort needs to be put togeather before an actual job description can be drafted.
    Has anyone else done this for particular Six Sigma belt levels within their company? An example of formal/informal format will be a great help.
