What after Six Sigma ?
Quality jobs are offered to a quality professional, otherwise companies keep these positions empty !
One may be a qualified engineer from ‘A’ grade college with good command over his/her area of specialisation still he or she in lack of some proven methodology practise & experience on them is not trusted by the employers for bigger roles; six sigma certifications being purely practical give hands-on experience to an individual that boost their confidence and therefore chances in quality job market; the employers also get convinced once they see a green or black belt holder in six sigma fraternity.
Globally six sigma is getting momentum on fast pace & quality jobs are becoming reserved for six sigma professionals, the salaries offered to a six sigma professional are around 30 – 40 % higher than their counterparts having same qualification without six sigma certification !
In India too, in bigger job hubs like Bengaluru, Gurugram, Noida, Delhi & Mumbai etc trend is shifting towards six sigma practitioners with better salaries & better future prospects.
Why the six sigma is getting such momentum ?
Today’s world in the era of information blast due to print media, media & social media, nobody & no company is in position to hide their errors in any form so the competition is like never before, so industry now does not need just a ‘knowledge pillar’ but now they need knowledge spreader & implementors that too in error-free manner, this need of the hour is adressed well in six sigma methodologies and therefore now the six sigma qualification is becoming a necessity across the business operations !
