Dear Kale
I had undergone LEAN SIX SIGMA - YELLOW BELT and GREEN BELT course. Yes, it has specific usage for HRM and can be associated/aligned with other departments based on organisation's requirements and business objectives.
You may contact Mr. Ashish Gupta, LSS - BLACK BELT CERTIFIED TRAINER @ 9702660029. He is based in NAVI MUMBAI. Also you can reach him by email and CC to .
Kindly do refer my name while approaching him.
With profound regards

am a certified six sigma champion from STQC...
Indian Statistical institute would be a good place .. they are one of the apex colleges in india.. and cost effective too.. couple of years back, 5k was the fee for green belt..
btw, the scope in HR is highly limited. people who say that there is scope are simply misleading..

I wrote there is a "SPECIFIC USAGE" that means "USAGE IT LIMITED". Kindly avoid writing something NEGATIVE and none is trying to MISLEAD anyone in this forum. By the way, let me know MISLEAD WHOM?
Its upto the LSS PROFESSIONALS to define its APPLICABILITY & USAGE not limiting it to other DOMAIN. Regarding STATISTICAL USAGE, LSS can also be used in HRM.
For your kind information there is NO GOOD OR BAD PLACE for LSS TRAINING & CERTIFICATIONS. Its all about the TRAINERS who are capable of delivering the SUBJECT and LEARNERS to LEARN AND MAKE BEST USE OF IT.
Hereafter, i hope you will avoid confusing members of this forum.
With profound regards

dear mr khadir,
i have attended more than 15 certifications in HR/ Quality right from ISO 9001/ EMS 14001/ OHSAS 18001/ ISO 27001/ COPC coordinator / six sigma champion / IEC 17025/ CE to certified compensation and benefits manager/ certified performance and competence developer/ certified psychometric testing professional/ certified learning and development manager and so on
i have 14 years of exp with leading brands like HCL/ Zamil/ Cornel in EMEA/ APAC regions.
i reaffirm the scope of six sigma application by an HR professional is "limited"
21st May 2012 From India, Delhi
let me cite a few examples to clear your understanding:
1. CIISA- ISO 27001: it is composed of 127 control points. HR professionals can design better background checks/ work place surveillance/ NDAs etc.
2. OHSAS 18001: occupational health is the bedrock of several imp things like quality of air/ water/ ergonomics/ etc...

Mr Khadir, in today’s world concepts/ techniques are fast changing.. unlearning is a must before fresh learning can take place. kindly do not take personal offence, i did not mean to hurt you.

Dear Mr. S V S RANA,
Congratulations for having attended various certification courses. Although, neither i attended these courses nor i acquired all these certifications but, i do have certain amount of information which i had learnt by due EXPERIENCE.
I meant(SPECIFIC USAGE) exactly the same as you had repeated in your post "LIMITED".
So called "LIMITED" usage can also sound productive if utilized with SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES. Its upto the HR PROFESSIONALS to understand LSS STRATEGIES & ITS IMPORTANCE besides, to what extent they can make best use of it.
I strictly believe in CREATIVITY & INNOVATION and i don't follow anyone BLINDLY.
Kindly feel free to share your knowledge you had gained as i wish to learn more from you. Hope, other members do wish to learn from you. By sharing your knowledge you can add stars to this forum.
With profound regards

dear khadir,
just noticed you are in qatar..
i was based with zamil group, we have plants in dammam/ ras al khaimah/ cairo...
zamil used to give extra holidays in lieu of trainings and they are real cheap in india...

Dear Mr. Surya Vrat Rana
I didnt understand your statement "zamil used to give extra holidays in lieu of trainings and they are real cheap in india...". Would you mind adding more information to your statement.
Also kindly do let me know, what made you compare EXTRA HOLIDAYS with TRAINING'S.
With profound regards

the company had a policy of giving extra holidays in lieu of time spent on trainings..
we used to get 30 days vacation in a year. used to split in two vacations... maximise that by combining with Ramadan in one go and a training in another.
they had a training budget for each cost center and trainings in india are real cheap vs in middle east. so if the company has a budget of 20k riyal, you can use it for a plethora of trainings in india...

Dear Chaitali,

In regard to your query about the applicability of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) in the field of HR, I would like to suggest that Lean Six Sigma is one of the very specialized management tools available to us. Before I explain its applicability in the field of HR, let me quickly brief you about LSS. In every process of the organization, we have value adding and non value adding activities. The objective of Lean is to identify these non value activities which is also referred to as waste or muda. Once the NVA have been identified then it works on reducing these NVA and creates value. After the process has been streamlined then the tools of Six Sigma, helps in further refining the process by reducing the variation happening in the process. Now since the objective of Lean and Six Sigma is organizational profitability and both support each other, so the management guru's coupled these two tools together under the name of Lea Six Sigma. In fact GE connected Six Sigma results to its executive compensation and published the financial benefits of Six Sigma implementation in their annual report.

Now regarding the application of LSS in the field of HR. HR is like any other process running in the organization having its own complexities. Even in HR we have a lot of NVA’s and process variations which rarely get highlighted due to obvious reasons. Identifying and working on these NVA’s and variations and then improving the process depends a lot on the organizational maturity and a willingness to improve. LSS finds its applicability in all the spheres of HR activities right from recruitment, admin, travel, performance appraisal, training and OD, etc. Using LSS as a tool, you can not only improve your existing process but also design good processes and also achieve your Key Performance Indices.

I am sure this will be of some use to you.

Now regarding training on LSS, we are one of the leading lean six sigma training organization with global reach. You can read more about us by visiting our official website. Also we are organizing LSS Yellow Belt Training and Certification Program on 24th June 2012. If you wish to enroll for the same, you can do so by clicking. In case you need further information please do get in touch with us

Dear Mr. Rana and Mr. Khadir,
I am a Diploma Student in HR and am planning to prepare my Project - Six Sigma in HR.
I believe both your view points will be beneficial to me while preparing my report.
Mr. Rana, could you tell me why you believe that scope of Six Sigma in HR is limited? Maybe you can give me some examples of some failed Six Sigma Projects in HR or those which did not yield the expected results?
Mr. Khadir, can you cite some Six Sigma projects which brought about dramatic changes in HR?
Thanks & Regards,
