They are expected to use the tools in their functional jobs to continue building up their skills. In order to find employment in the field, a minimum of Black Belt certification is typically required. However, with that said, Lean Six Sigma basic skills and mindset in combination with functional expertise and experiences are valued in many industries. In regards to age, its a different matter in my perspective as that challenge applies to any field of employment.Hanh----- Original Message -----From: Daniel BloomSent: Wednesday, April 30, 2008 5:41 PMSubject: [CI_SixSigmaLean] Having a discussion with some colleagues
I am scheduled to receive my Six Sigma Green Belt on Saturday after
completing the course work. One of the discussions among my classmates
was whether having earned the greenbelt and being toward the
potentially the end of a work career, would that hinder our ability to
find employment in this field. Several of us are in our late 50's
early 60's. Interested in the thoughts of this group on this matter.
