Celebrating achievment

I have been a very quiet blogger lately with a reasonably good excuse.  Since the beginning of August, 2014, I have been working to achieve certification in Lean Six Sigma. As of last Sunday, the formal part of my education in this discipline is now complete.
Why is Six Sigma certification so important to me? That is a question I have been asking myself - most often when working on a statistics question.

The answer is that it is important to me to perform at a high level. I want to advise my colleagues on the best way forward for their process improvement initiatives.  I want to work with teams who get to that high functioning sweet spot of maximum  output.  When I suggest a path, I want my colleagues to trust that I am not sending them on the pot-hole filled, meandering,  gravel side road, but ahead of the line of vehicles on that freshly paved, multi-lane, freeway that has great merge lanes, off ramps, and rest stops.

For me, achieving a Master Certificate in Six Sigma is the road map and the compass and the GPS.  The tool box of tested methodology to find the best way forward. 

It was also a lot of fun!
