5 Compelling Reasons to Opt for Six Sigma Certification

How does Six Sigma make a difference?

Before answering this, let us tell you a little story about Stanford Hospitals and Clinics. This particular hospital was facing a problem a few years ago. According to a survey, 35% of patients complained that they had to wait for about 45 minutes after reaching the hospital to see the doctor. They wanted to reduce this waiting time to 15 minutes. So they set a goal to do it in the next 5 months. Hence, they applied the DMAIC method of Six Sigma and within 3 months, not only the total waiting time of a regular day decreased to 4-5 hours from a total of 12–14 hours, but they were able to save $25 million per year!

But this is about an entire business. What does a Six Sigma certification do to an individual? Why should you choose a Six Sigma certification if you are looking forward to working in the field of quality assurance?

In this blog, we are going to tell you the career benefits of Six Sigma certification. Drop your queries in the comment section below if you have any.

As we know, Six Sigma is a set of techniques and tools for process improvement. In our blog Overview of Six Sigma - Top 5 Principles, Features, Benefits”, we have discussed the basics of Six Sigma in detail. Let us tell you a little bit about the types of Six Sigma certification now. There are three kinds of Six Sigma certification:

  • Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt: This one is an efficient way to learn the basics of Six Sigma. It is ideal for those who are learning to handle limited improvement projects.
  • Lean Six Sigma Green Belt: This is for them who are a part of a Six Sigma management team and those who usually assists with data collection and analysis for improvement projects.
  • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt: This certification is for team leaders who manage big improvements as it helps in problem-solving projects. At the Black Belt level, you will possess a thorough understanding of each and every aspect of Lean Six Sigma.

top 5 reasons to choose Six Sigma certification in front of you.

1. An Amazing Package

This one goes without saying. Since a person with a Six Sigma certification basically predicts the future of organizational growth, organizations are on the lookout for them heavily! Once you hold a Six Sigma certification, it works as an endorsement for your employers, supporting your explicit skillset.

According to, the average salary of a Six Sigma Green Belt holder is Rs. 878K in India. Can you believe that?


2. Applicability Across Industries

Which industries can use Six Sigma principles for their own benefit?

This is the wrong question. The right one actually should be: Is there any industry that can’t benefit from Six Sigma? 

In the past few years, we have seen Six Sigma methodologies expanding like anything. Along with IT, electronics, aerospace, banking & financial services, telecom, HR, marketing, and healthcare, even food and beverage organizations like Starbucks are making use of it. 

Once you are Six Sigma certified, it will broaden your career perspective across industries as well as increase your career flexibility. 

3. Organizational Growth

The main aim of Six Sigma is the cultural improvement of an organization and, thus, organizational growth. With the help of DMAIC principle, you can define the process and opportunities for improvement, identify critical measures, baseline, process, and operational performance to quantify opportunity, analyze process performance to understand the pain points, develop improvement solutions, and measure solutions with an associated control plan. When the entire organization follows the same process, everyone there can adapt to the change, and hence, the company culture turns into a continuous learning culture. 

Once an organization has a number of Six Sigma-certified employees in managerial positions, it becomes easier to take initiatives and create new projects to improve processes. Once you are Six Sigma certified, you will be able to train the team to have better analytical skills to measure the causes and analyze them before acting on them, attack the problems, and fix them efficiently.

4. Error Elimination

Sometimes, a process goes completely wrong or is overly delayed. Or, you are not being able to meet the deadline, and you don’t have a clue why. Well, with a Six Sigma certification, you’ll know exactly why.

Six Sigma addresses 8 major kinds of waste: defects, overproduction, waiting, non-value-added processing, transportation, inventory, motion, and unused employee talent. Once you know all about them after your certification, error elimination seems pretty easy.

5. Enhancement Of Leadership Ability

This is the top benefit of a Six Sigma certification. Once you hold a Six Sigma certification, that implies that you are officially stamped for leadership roles. With the tricks and hacks to reduce costs and increase revenue, you shine as an excellent leader. Apart from that, you learn to improve the efficiency of the business process.

Six Sigma Black Belt holders are also armed to become change agents within the organization. They are responsible for improving processes and the quality of products and services delivered to customers. They become equipped to handle financial management and risk assessment as well. What do you think? Seeing yourself there already?


You must have heard a few people say Six Sigma is a pretty old school and has lost its charm. Well, we think in a different way. There are almost 50+ new rom-coms releasing every year. But, can any of them make Julia Robert’s ‘Pretty Woman’ or Audrey Hepburn’s ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ look old ever? No right?

So why don’t you too think of Six Sigma as a classic among methodologies and opt for training that leads you to a successful Six Sigma certification right away?
