    This is Jagannath S from India. I have done my BE Mech Engg and MBA. I have just finished my studies. I am really interested in taking up a career in Six Sigma. What would be the first and right step to be taken to achieve my goal?
    I read about the various certificates for an individual to specialize in Six Sigma. I came into a conclusion that, getting a Six Sigma Black Belt certificate would be helpful.
    But, I have received some comments that, only a SSBB certificate can’t determine the capability of an individual who is specializing in Six Sigma. The person must be experienced. Here, I got struck. What would be the best way to develop the capability in Six Sigma.

    Please comment on this

    Thanks in advance….

    The best way would be through project wok while being mentored through said project by a skilled black belt. Avoid online certification as that will not give you solid experience. If you have a job already, volunteer to be a green belt first. If you don’t have a job, search for a company with a well established six sigma program and tell them of your desires at the interview.

    Good luck
