I got a Green belt while working at GE Plastics in the mid 90's. When I was a consultant I used pieces of it like process mapping and FMEA all of the time to explain to C-Level execs why they want to fix something down in IT. I don't use all of the math as much anymore, but the ideas are good for the toolkit.

It is useful but only if after you do all of the grunt work to prove something, you have someone with power to present it to.

I just never come across it, nor am I in manufacturing yet I still get lectured on how I should get it.
for a large company, it is good for uncovering inefficiencies in their processes, eliminating waste, and restructuring(if needed) their old ways to a profitable and lean/efficient operating culture. 6 sigma probably plays out better for manufacturing companies vs other companies.

I am a certified green belt, but that is only because I have participated on projects that have been successful(savings of $100k+). to be a black belt, one would need to have a college degree, or be a mid-high level manager status, typically. at my old company, a dedicated black belt(vs. a person that is a trained black belt, but still holds their profession and does not conduct 6 sigma projects) would start out now at $80k+

I can see in a manufacturing operation it having some use. I see it every now and then on job postings. I was just curious. My mother in law who i cant stand acts like it's the key to her financial freedom and will make her invaluable to her company. She's bat shit crazy.

Funny thing about that clip, when I was a HS freshman my dad was laid off, then he saw office space a few yrs later. He said his old company did the exact same thing. Brought in these guys and phased out different aspects of the company. He said they were very similar in how big of douchebags the movie guys are. In hindsight it allowed him to start his own business and make way more than he ever would at his old company. He still buys products from the old company and there is a lot of friction there, all those that stayed on the boat are pretty miserable.
