It's Not Easy Being Green

Somehow I got "elected" to get a green belt in Six Sigma / Lean projects.


On one hand, it is nice that my bosses think enough of me that this would be a great next step for me.

On the other hand - it's five full days of training, planning, presenting and then taking on a project (on top of my other two jobs) that will last 90 days.

Oh my.

My team is ok. One is great. One is fair. And one is a low talker.........yes, just like on Seinfeld. Sitting right next to her, I could not hear one word.  Honest.  I really don't know how she's going to be part of the presentation on day 5.

All that stuff on the wall is just part of our brainstorming work. Right now I'm in the data gathering phase. That is my favourite part. Excel sheets for days.

I won't bore you with the details as we go along. Maybe I'll do another post after they give me my green belt.

......there is a real belt......right?

As long as you are green you are growing. Maybe you can find shoes to match?

Hope your experience is better than mine.

They used this on our procurement processes at work. The result was overpromising, underperforming, and plate scraping.

Yeah, I know, just shut up and drink the Kool-Aid.
