    You have already joined the best forum about 6 sigma you can find in the galaxy.
    As for what books you might need, I advise you to visit this website http://www.qualitycouncil.com/ they have excellent books on quality and 6 sigma.
    The certification process depends on where you want to take the test. If you want to study on your own and take the test. I suggest you test through ASQ. No matter what anybody says about it, it is a reputable organization and it is slowly but surely setting the standards.
    You can visit http://www.asq.org
    You will need to work on some project improvements to be eligible to take the 6sigma ASQ test.
    If you want to be credible, do not take the IQF test, no one respects that organization. Do not tell anyone that I said it,  I might be sued.
    I came across a good website on 6sigma that you might want to give a try. It is far from being complete but the statistics part is fairly well done.
    http://www.sixsigmafirst.com
    If you want to pay a lot of money to be certified, you see the blue banner on the right side of your screen, look for the word consultant and click on it, you shall find what you are looking for.
    Hope this will help.

    Akram,
    One our sixsigma black belt was certified by IQF and he is one of the best managers we have ever had at our company. So please stop your slandering. We are very pleased with his work, he has helped our company reduce cycle time , reduce inventory and improve responsiveness to customer demand better than any manager we have ever had, so please…..

    Stan,
    you are the loudest mouth on this forum and when was the last time you made a productive contribution. You are always ready to slander people but no one has ever seen your work. You talk bad about Harry Mikel, bad about Tom Pyzdek but at least we have seen their intellectual production.
    What book have you writen lately?
    It’s easy to hide behind a forum and slander people, it’s harder to make a good intellectual production.
    I like Darth, Vinny and Mike Carmel because I may not always agree withem but they are very helpful

    Joe honey,
    I am glad that your IQF BB is a good manager. Maybe IQF has a good GB that can be a good secretary. Maybe a Lean Expert from IQF could be a good janitor for you.
    The possibilities are endless.

    Don’t “honey” me! I am a man. If you are confused about your sexuality that’s your problem.
    What you fail o understand is that there is more into it about six sigma than just the certificate that you guys or ASQ deliver. A guy with a BSc or a masters certainly do not compare with a someone who only recieved a 4 weeks training from Stan.
    The IQF program is loaded with stat and managerial concepts and is suited for most companies.
    So shut up until you start producing something we can see.

    Can’t you quit calling me “honey”?I am talking sense and 6 sigma and the benefit gained throught training and all you do is just try to demean.I bet your 4 weeks training is nothing but a 4 weeks of screw up.I have never seen anything smart come out of you on this forum. You are the most prolific and the least productive.You are an empty can.

    Quit “honeying” me!You are lucky you are not in front of me. You can hide behind a computer and talk trash to people. I will ignore your comments and this will be my last post talking to you.I was just trying to help him and you are insulting both of us. You are arrogant. I am sick and ired of your silly joke always trying to make people look stupd. I wonder what you see when you look at a mirror.

    Joe,Thanks for fighting the good fight. We also appreciate that you and your company have had an outstanding experience with our organization. While I am not one to get into mudslinging, I agree that Stan has gone a little overboard on this thread. Please ignore him and take the high road. I know from personal experience that he can be a little irritating if you let him get to you.Your sexual orientation is not of anyone’s concern. Stan saw he could get to you and like any four year old he reacted to each of your posts. Keep up your contributions and send regards to your manager.Notice that I do not react when he starts talking trash about IQF. He is entitled to his opinions and comments and is borderline slanderous. But, we are secure in what we are doing and we have a best selling book and he doesn’t. In fact, Mr. Carnell only has that paperback book which isn’t even sold here in the US but can only be purchased in China for about 35 cents. And Darth has trouble writing his name let alone publishing anything of value. So, keep the faith Joe and I look forward to future posts.

    Joe honey,Go back and read what you posted. Did you say that you had a guy who went through IQF certification and it changed his entire perspective? No. I can show yo thousands that do say that that about Mike Carnell, Darth and me. I suspect I could show you the same about Ken, Andy U., Phil, Vinny and several others who post on here and have a little fun. We all help when there is some evidence of thought and effort on the other end. Many help anyway, but not me.And then there is the IQF, Shaininites, Mikel Harry worshipers and other zombies out there. Common thread there? Leader is arrogant and willing to believe they are superior even though the actual results don’t bear this arrogance out.What do I see when I look in the mirror? Easy. A middle aged man who has spent 30 years trying to learn and help people. A person dedicated to being and helping change agents and who will align himself with a company making an honest effort to achieve a strategy that is grounded in reality. I live in a gay neighborhood during the workweek (absolutely true) and spend as much time as I can with my beautiful wife and my kids. My kids are much more improtant to me than going out with the boys, a round of golf, or all of the other manly persuits that are fun, just not important. I teach my kids to be kind, value education, love water, and scuba dive by the age of ten. Oh yea, I’m very sarcastic and don’t suffer fools lightly. Stop playing the fool.Honey.

    Tommy honey,
    Joe did not say his manager had a good experience with IQF. He said that he had a guy who certified through IQF and was one of their best managers. You see cause and effect in that? Heck, they may have all bozos for managers and this guy may just be a winner in a pig race. That aside, IQF certified and a good manager? Would you see cause and effect if he said the guy is IQF certified and watches WWE Raw religiously? Or how about if he said the guy is a good manager and a bass fisherman? Truth is that your certification is an academic exercise and not very well accepted. I could pass yor exam with a hangover, no sleep and one reference book (I will give you that I would choose the book carefully and it would not be yours although I do own one of yours; but then again I also own all of Mikel’s, Shainin “propriertary” stuff, and a vaste assortment of other wasted trees).
    You have a “best seller”? Your definition of a best seller is a fairly low bar – eh?

    Stan, could blow your own horn a little louder.I dont think the dead people heard you.I often wonder in my life what it is that makes some people think they have the only solution to a problem and they are always right, no matter the situation. We are all here to either lend a hand or ask for help; and personal feelings need to be left at home on the door the step.CT

    Joe,
    I’m amazed at the hostility from your set of posts. 
    After reading the posts, are you saying unless you publish you should perish?  It sounds like an academic approach.  There is more than one way to contribute to society.
    I know plenty of folks who enjoyed their weeks of training from Stan including myself.  Stan has many strengths which you might be under appreciating.  Remember in these public forums, sometimes a provocative posting can teach by getting intellectual thoughts racing in the gray matter.

    Looks like Mr.President is attempting to:
    – get funny,
    – Get slanderous
    or is getting corrupted into sarcasm in a manner consistent with other well known, and respected, posters. Some understand the power and creativity of sarcasm. Which is it ?
    And I thought he had the ultimate in levels of posting morality ?

    Stan may have sharp words to say – but he certainly has a long history with successful Six Sigma deployments and with the worlds top companies/leaders – for that he should get respect.
    You may not like what he posts – that’s your prerogative.

    Stan, you and all your zombies are wrong.  The forum is for discussion.  If you don’t want to suffer fools, kill yourself.  The world is full of fools. None of us meet the standard.  We all have our moments of idiocy.  We use our ignorance to learn. 
    However, you, my sadly self-absorbed friend, are the worst of all fools: self-idolizing has-been.  Use your past implementation success as justification for urinating on this open discussion?  What the hxll kind of logic is that?  If implementation is your gig, for God’s sake go do it, and leave us fools alone.  I’m sure we all look like stupid little puppies to you.  Fine. Shut up.
    “Oh, Lord Stan, would that I have trained under the expanse of your almighty wings, and looked into your wondrously deep eyes, and wilted at the sonorous tones of your discourse, and marveled at your endless insight, then I could be so in love with you and your mezmerizing ways that I could smile and sigh as you barf onto these pages.  Your bilge would smell as roses if I had only been an employee at one of the legendary companies that you counseled.  Poor me.  My life will end unfulfilled.
    Carnal, Death, Sin, Ambrosia,  et al… You have no excuse for defending this idiot.  Your “respected colleague” is
    I log on every couple months hoping that you’re gone.  So far, no luck.

    I agree in principle with your comments, that is, sometimes people can go a bit beyond the ribbing, but if you read between the lines from most of these ‘so-called’ nasty replies, there is learning to be made (sometimes you need to look real deep) There are some excellent threads on here that are not merely back slapping & egotistical as what i have just read on one of your preferred sites.
    “never post here” hmmmm
    i am not going to be derogatory to you, but if you really don’t like what you see (or cant read into) maybe you know the answer…

    Guys,
    I just ran the numbers and…..90 % of new posters ask dumb questions while 99 % of the core Monty python team’s responses are tainted with sarcasm; there seems to be a strong correlation. Now as far as cause and effect which one causes which? Does the Monty python core group respond to great questions or do the great new posters respond to the great answers????? Give me a few more years to run a trend analysis and I’ll publish the results in my six sigma is better than your six sigma journal. I publish it myself ($500 per article submission).

It has some awful definitons!Also, someone please tell me what services isixsigma offers…who runs this place? who owns it? Why so many ads? Is it just a marketing company getting mileage out of Six Sigma? And who the hell is Stan? ;) What does he do for a living(besides posting on this forum).PS: I like the Cox – Box striphttp://blogs.isixsigma.com/index.asp?ui=Gary%20P.%20Cox&s=bloggers

    Chris, you’ve wasted Darth. Now who will gladly share his hundreds of years of experience with the huddled masses of this global forum. Someone call Vinny; perhaps GiantMedicalProductsCompany has something in their catalog to bring Darth back from his demise.
    Since I’m Dr. Phil and bring a certain level of brand awareness to any venture, I was certain I was in for a payday for submitting to your journal. But you drive a hard bargain. I have dropped 18 fresh Andrew Jackson’s in the mailbox outside my office here in North Philcisco Beach, marked for delivery with “HF Chris” on them. Keep the change. Now will you please use my funny photo in your journal? 
    What’s his name is right. This is the best internet site for information on Six Sigma, funny pictures, great blogs, teriffic cartoons, and lots of help if you’re needing links to professionals who recognize internet marketing insight in reaching Six Sigma people all over the world.
    Anyone else wonder if Fishbreath will catch any lobster today? Who’s going to take over driving people to the site?

    Dr. Phil,
    I have heard your appeal for help and thanks to some  brilliant design work by Dr. Vinny, we have developed an unobtrusive, hardly noticeable, small and compact respirator to try and revive Darth after his battle with the forces of HF.  Its secondary use is a float bag designed to raise large sunken ships.  Or to help float Stan after he goes over his legal limit of lobsters.  Hope this helps.

    Excellent work by Dr. Vinny and your fine organization. As a suggestion, could you redesign that the bag portion be extended another 50% to incorporate the lower, extremely sensitive area of a normal sized human?
    I suspect that Darth did not meet with his demise as a previous post indicated, but simply had, in politically correct terms, the “wind knocked out of him” by a judo kick strategically placed by HF during the fight. What a day to have left his cup at the office in Indiana……..and it’s still filled with coffee, too.
