That's probably a loaner to generate some business for the local scooter store.

Six Sigma is a registered service mark and trademark of Motorola Inc. As of 2006 Motorola reported over US$17 billion in savings from Six Sigma.
Other early adopters of Six Sigma who achieved well-publicized success include Honeywell (previously known as AlliedSignal) and General Electric, where Jack Welch introduced the method. By the late 1990s, about two-thirds of theFortune 500 organizations had begun Six Sigma initiatives with the aim of reducing costs and improving quality.


My dad spent 30 yrs working for AlliedSignal AKA Honeywell, and he couldn't stand the Six Sigma policy-wonks. When I worked for GE I couldn't stand 'em either. Must be an inherited trait, eh?

I never heard of Six Sigma until Buzz enlightened me last year at the Torreya chigger fest.

They quit doing the certifications here for some reason, maybe too many experts. Anyway my first experience was in 2006 when we switched to SAP and the cocksucker that was supposed to develop one of the processes quit taking input from users and then disappeared right before it was implemented. Of course because I routed 10x as many setups as any other department I was the first one in the whole entire fucking corporation to discover that it wasn't finished and he had royally screwed us and I was getting blamed for not being able to complete the work that had been stacking up for a month waiting for the change.

Anyway, I pointed out that the process was circular and without an end and required signatures for lines that were and always would be the same from departments that told the developer they wanted to review each item but in reality were never going to invest the time. I sketched a proposal for a new process where all of the defaults were defaulted and redundancies were reduced and the whole process could be handled by the three departments that had anything invested in the process and left out the other 6.

But since I was and am an uneducated plebeian who is not worthy to speak in the presence of the mighty who don't need to understand a process in order to implement one, they got a Six Sigma guy to work with our process guy and they spent an additional 6 or 8 weeks and dozens of thousands of dollars implementing the exact fucking thing I recommended in the first place. Even after 6 or 8 weeks, they still didn't understand enough of the setup so I had to work with the developer to set up all of the defaults that we are still using today.

Someone got major accolades for solving a problem that didn't need to exist in the first place because they used Six Sigma and it wasn't me.

Anyway feel free to move this to the bitch and moan thread.

I give it a 4, but only for the total lack of both profanity AND useless business jargon.

Edit: caught some profanity 4.5

I concur, it's certainly worthy of a 4.5--good word choice, strong vocabulary and sentence composition skillz.

And here's yer daily dose of chuckleheadery--I'm no brand loyalist, and I once owned a Ford that was bulletproof. I've also owned a Ford that brought back all kinds of memories the moment I saw this pic:


After thinking about it a minute, I realized something: I've never owned a Chevy. Don't have anything against 'em tho, and I put lotsa miles on four different Impalas driving around the Southeast for GE back before I said goodbye to Corporate America. I don't miss that gig. I do miss the company car tho--free unlimited personal use...

And I had a trailer hitch mounted on every one of those cars. Very useful for ADVtrailering to ADVrallies.

Don't tell anybody, it was against policy,

Laugh Aunt Gracie was a chucklehead

Aunt Gracie Shoaf also had a burglar phobia, but she met it with more fortitude. She was confident that burglars had been getting into her house every night for four years. The fact that she never missed anything was to her no proof to the contrary. She always claimed that she scared them off before they could take anything, by throwing shoes down the hallway. When she went to bed she piled, where she could get at them handily, all the shoes there were about her house. Five minutes after she had turned off the light, she would sit up in bed and say "Hark!" Her husband, who had learned to ignore the whole situation as long ago as 1903, would either be sound asleep or pretend to be sound asleep. In either case he would not respond to her tugging and pulling, so that presently she would arise, tiptoe to the door, open it slightly and heave a shoe down the hall in one direction, and its mate down the hall in the other direction. Some nights she threw them all, some nights only a couple of pair.
