    I am relatively new to Six Sigma, but I reckon like a lot of things in life you can get a lot of benefit from knowing a little. I would therefore like to ask all you experienced Black Belts and Master BlackBelts out there, “What are the 10 most important tools, techniques, things I need to learn?”
    Thx

    You reckon?
    Two very important things you need to learn are:
    1. “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing”
    2. “There is no instant pudding”

    1. All the SS tools
    2-10. Refer to No. 1.
    Sorry, couldn’t resist.
    You do need to learn the application of all tools because you don’t know at the front end of a project what will be necessary to identify your solution. Over time and depending upon the variety of your projects you will use some tools more than others. However, you must have a working knowledge of them all.
    Relax – it will come.

    In  every  subject  there  are important  topics and  less-important topics?

    “A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again.”
    Learn Each tool in concept , theory ,understand it, apply it and move forward .
    No short cuts here

    Hi
    No shortcuts, though below are few items that will help you understand most of the stuff if known in depth:
    1. DMAIC
    2. ANOVA
    3. Normal Curve / probability distributions
    4. Quality Function Deployment
    5. Statistical Process Control
    6. 7 QC tools
    7. Measurement system analysis
    8. Read book by Elliahu Goldratt (The goal is the best choice)
    9. Quality is Free by Philip Crossby
    I think if someone has a good understanding of the above concepts can be a good practitioner of quality…
    my thoughts
    Hope this is helpful
    Regards
    Hemanth

    Quality is Free? There’s a blast from the past. I do agree it is worth
    reading if you are just starting. I also agree with Goldratt, but the Goal
    is the only one worth reading.Out of the Crisis and Managerial Breakthrough are absolutes if you
    really want to understand.

    The Goal & Quality is  free have  nothing  to  do  with SS,both  books are  tackling Lean  and  TQM concepts

    There are always shortcuts. And that brings me to my first lesson.
     

    Understand risk vs. reward.
    Ability to interview to get to the heart of the matter.
    Be able to paint a picture.
    Basic leadership skills.
    Be smart enough to know when to ask a question.
    Be brave enough to ask the right person.
    Have an analytical mind

    The methodology puts a little framework around it.
    The tools help narrow and prove.
     
    Don’t focus on the tools, too many people use a tool for the tools sake and nothing more.
     
    My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

    Lila, Good evening!I agree with Stan; when you wrote “The Goal & Quality is free have nothing to do with SS ….”, you were wrong. “Quality is Free” is one of the classics, pre-dating the use of the acronym TQM and the invention of the term “Six Sigma”. Nevertheless, its concepts are certainly at the basis of key improvement methodologies, including Six Sigma.Likewise, the concepts in “The Goal” are not limited to the practice of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) — it is definitely fertile material for the practice of Six Sigma, also.
    Best regards,
    QualityColorado

    Lila honey, My response was as convincing as your uninformed assertion. Only
    difference is I am right.

    Come on people – this has deteriotated enough. Clearly we each have opinions and insist they are the only correct ones.

    Brandon, Whether or not the work of Goldratt and Crosby are at the basic level
    of understanding of SS is not a matter of opinion. If you’ve not read
    these guys, Juran, Deming, Schoenberger, Womack, Taguchi, … your
    knowledge is limited. Those that only do BB training and think the
    know it all haven’t even started learning yet.

    Stan – I won’t argue with that. SS tools are not the be all, end all, so many more skills are necessary.
    My point was this is another string that’s deteriorated to who’s daddy can beat up who’s daddy – again.
