    I am working towards becoming a Six Sigma black belt. Can anyone please tell me if a Six Sigma black belt needs to be good on statistics and maths? Is there a minimum eligiblity for someone to be a good Black belt in both service/manufacturing sector? I have good leadership/ people skills, PM skiils, Can analyse things very well but dont’ consider good on statistics. Can I be a good black belt?

    You can do just fine. Relative to statistics you need only understand what they can do for you relative to analyzing data. There are software tools available to do the calculations.
    Just pay close attention to the theory behind the use of statistics.

    Thank you very much. Is this Minitab which is the statistical software? I haven’t used minitab before. Do we need any training for minitab? Any idea how much the software costs?

    I reccomend taking at least one semester of statistics if you want to be a good black belt.  Neither a lack of training in statistics, nor a six weeks seminar in six sigma will make you a “good” black belt.  It not a matter of running Minitab or calculating a hand full of formulas, you have to understand the theoretical bases of the statistics and choose the right formulas and evaluate the computed statistics correctly.  Be cautious with Minitab…it gives you what you ask for.  If you ask it for the wrong thing or don’t know how to interpret the results, Minitab won’t tell you so.
