What Is Six Sigma Certification
Lean six sigma training India is quite famous worldwide. Many people have written to us and iSixSigma asking various questions about Lean Six Sigma Training Noida. How can I get Six Sigma certified? Where can I get Six Sigma certified? Is Six Sigma certification transferable if I leave a company for another? The list goes on and on. This article will help answer these questions regarding the ubiquitous and confusing “Six Sigma certification” topic.
For instance, millions of people have applied for, tested and been granted a driver’s license in the India. It certifies that a person has passed the minimum guidelines and requirements for driving. The individual must pass both a written and hands-on driving test in order to “certify.” Not all individuals in the United States, however, have the same proficiency in driving – even though they may have passed the tests and been granted a driver’s license. The same is true for Six Sigma certification. Certification alone does not summarize the worth of a true quality professional.
What Is Lean Six Sigma methodology Noida?
Lean Six Sigma methodology Noida is a confirmation of an individual’s capabilities with respect to specific competencies. Just like any other quality certification, however, it does not indicate that an individual is capable of unlimited process improvement – just that they have completed the necessary requirements from the company granting the certification.
What Is Involved In Six Sigma Certification?
As with attaining a driver’s license in the United States, Six Sigma certification entails learning the appropriate subject matter, passing a written proficiency test and displaying competency in a hands-on environment. The materials can be purchased from almost any Six Sigma training and consulting company, but almost always comes bundled with classroom training. Usually you or your company will purchase a training session, which has different bodies of knowledge and durations for each Six Sigma level (Green Belt, Black Belt, Master Black Belt, etc.).
The written proficiency test may be given by the training company or the business hiring the training company. Typically, companies new to Six Sigma will defer to the training company’s proficiency test. Companies that have been performing in-house training for years (such as Motorola or GE) have created and administer their own written proficiency tests.
After a quality professional has completed training, they must complete one or two quality projects and display competency in applying the concepts learned in the classroom training. This is where certification companies diverge – this part of the certification is the most fuzzy and undefined. Some organizations require a certification candidate to complete one project if a Green Belt, and two projects if a Black Belt or Master Black Belt; others require less or more. In addition, there is no standard for what passes and what fails to display an individual’s competency.
So, what’s the takeaway from certification? Any worthwhile certification involves training, a written proficiency exam and a hands-on competency display of the methodology to real world problems. The specifics around each of these three requirements vary from company to company. Will it ever become standardized? Probably, but not in the near future.
