Which compliments a PMP more, LSSGB or SSGB?
Network:96



I am pursuing Six Sigma Green Belt certification. Mostly to compliment my PMP, and partly to satisfy my PDU requirement. I have used SS in the military. I understand there is LSSGB, CSSGB and SSGB. Which should I attain? Thanks, Mark...

from my point of view implementing Lean with Six Sigma gives you higher edge and benefit the use of lean tools in addition to six sigma as it is almost very difficult to separate both from each other

I recommend the Lean version as it is more marketable and provides several more concepts beyond "normal" SS. All Six Sigma certification variants will require adaptation into a business environment but Lean ties into business continuous improvement beyond manufacturing connotations.

Agree here. The melding of these two techniques creates not just a lower error rate, but a complementary set of tools to increase productivity with less complexity. Combine that with something like Agile, where you want low error, through small, bite-sized sprints, and a good quality management Plan using LSS and you have a potential method that is superior to any of the three individually.

Thank you all.

Six sigma is good as quality management.

Lean has much broader applicability to both process and project contexts than pure Six Sigma, so would definitely recommend the combination of the two. However, I'd ensure that you are in a position to utilize this knowledge quickly - lean skills tend to "stick" for a while, but SS knowledge (e.g. where should I be using a two sample T test) tends to fade rapidly if it is not used regularly...
