Evaluating Six Sigma Project Leaders
Young Park, Business Consultant, Korea (South)

How can I evaluate the talent of Six Sigma project leaders (presentation skill, answering, strategic thinking, and so on)?
What grading and evaluation of the factors do you recommend?

Qualifications for Six Sigma Project Leaders
Matthias Bittrich, Business Consultant, Germany
1. I strongly recommend a person with at least a Black Belt qualification, a Master BB would be even better, of course.
2. His project list should contain a few difficult projects which did not run through easily, he needs to be a challenged person.
3. He should fit with the customerīs culture: if he wears a tie on a factory site he wonīt get the acceptance he needs, vice versa wearing jeans for a banking project is out of style, too.
4. He should be experienced in change management same as in presentation skills. Most projects fail because of the human factor, so being a method specialist is not enough.
5. It is not the job of a BB to do strategy consulting, he reacts on quality and customer problems and supports the staff and leaders in finding solutions together. The maximum is delivering benchmark data of leading competitors which can be used for the analyze and improve phases.
6. He must have statistics-software skills, for example in leading tools like Minitab.
7. I recommend a BB who is experienced in lean management.
