    Has anyone taken the Villanova Black Belt Certificate Course?  What did you think of it?
    There are a number of BB Certifications out there.  Which certifications are accepted by industry?  Is Villanova’s Certificate acceptable?

    The best course is George Group–they invented Lean Six Sigma.  ASQ is decent.  The rest stink.

    I swear I had nothing to do with this post so don’t get on my case.  When he’s right, he’s right.

    Ahhh but George Group and ASQ don’t sound nearly as sexy as Motorola!!  :-)
    Although I like the combination of Lean and Six Sigma – can you really say someone invented “Lean Six Sigma”?  Seems like a stretch to me.
    I have read and enjoy the Group Group Materials – I agree for LeanSixSigma, they have the best stuff.  I like the case study applications that they use as well.
    Cheers!

    Going through training is one thing, but executing projects is another. I have experienced Motorola’s Continouous Improvement Curriculum and aslo have had the George Group DMAIC training. Both were great. Without some key projects, neither one would have done me any good. Kind of like buying the best tools at the hardware store, and then letting them collect dust. I mentored a few people who went through BMG training, and their materials seemed good too. I think you need to be an expert at applying the right tool in the right situation, and that is more important than who gave you the training.
    I don’t think it is accurate to say that the George Group invented Lean Six Sigma. (Maybe they coined the phrase).  Motorola had a Six Sigma thrust and a cycle time reduction thrust in the late 80s /early 90s. We had training on pull systems, continuous flow manufacturing, process mapping, lot size optimization, etc.  One motto we had in a high volume manufacturing plant was “MORE,  BETTER,  FASTER!”  Definitely “LSS-esque”!

    I do not think George Group claims they are inventor for lean six sigma. George shall be old and humble enough to know that many other people already combined lean and six sigma in early 80s when he was doing his apprentice training in Toyota Japan.
