    • No, completion of a full-fledged DMAIC or DMADV project is not an essential factor for hiring an improvement manager job role. Six Sigma is one of the method for process improvement. There are various methods through which improvements is achievable . One must have sound knowledge of all tools and techniques for effective problem solving and choosing correct approach for process improvement.

    • Since Software is a service now (SAAS) how do we encourage our IT teams to incorporate Six Sigma as a practice. How do we attract them towards the concept so that we give our clients the best! 
    • Excellence Ambassador Perspective Togy's Response Rajesh Chakrabarty YES!!

      As the experience and the transferable knowledge gained from the project counts. The more the projects completed, the better.  While end-to-end project experience is certainly an advantage, if the Individual has enough "Project Management" experience (maybe with a PMP background) wouldn't that coupled with a BB / MBB certification ensure the individual has the maturity to lead large / complex projects while still have indepth LSS knowledge? Santosh Chitale Yes.   A Six Sigma experience in at least two or more should be the minimum criteria for onboarding into a Black Belt.

      Six Sigma gives a wide range of experience in the tools, analysis, and project management of a diverse team. Only with this range can one really go for the challenges that are part of Black Belt. 1) Given that in some industries (eg: Consulting)   where LSS is not encouraged but there are enough high quality profiles, would we want to be limited by this requirement?
      2) Even if someone were to claim having done a project end to end, there is no way to review the data and verify the findings on account of confidentiality. So we’ll limit ourselves to just checking only conceptual clarity anyway.
      3) Not every LSS intervention needs to be a project, even a well-timed and well-documented FMEA can help with prioritised corrective action or a well documented QFD can help with a well structured design process. So a certified BB who has a done a lot standalone interventions deserves a chance. Krishnamurthy Rao Yes, for the role of an Improvement manager, a full-fledged project experience would be absolutely necessary. An improvement manager would be responsible for the successfully executing multiple projects which needs to show significant improvement in savings. An improvement manager will also have to guide the members of the team which would need practical on hands experience for a manager.

      Also on-hands experience would be necessary to carefully understand and work on the minor integrities which might not be acquired only with theoretical experience for a manager to successfully run & complete projects. Handson experience can be achieved by working on projects with clear deliverables even if they are not LSS projects. The key is to ensure that we're using LSS tools / templates to ensure the project is benefiting from the LSS methodology.
