Hello everybody,

I am a student pursuing my post graduate in Management with specialisation in HR.

I have a decision to make whether I should devote my time for Six Sigma, for which Training is being offered at my college. The doubts I face is how much relevant is it to the field of Human Resources? What benefits and what kind of benefits can i expect vis a vis a career in Human Resources? Considerable time and energy would be spent if i choose to join the training. This is what has put me in dilemma if i should opt for it or spend my time in other learning activities.

I want your valuable inputs to help me decide for the same.

Thanks in advance

Hi Rehaan,

Six Sigma is a proven concept. Can we call it "upcoming in Indian Business". Has been adopted by almost all major global corporates. My guess is it would help you get extremely good process orientation and then it would be ++ on your resume too. My suggestion is take it, unless of course you have an equally compelling elective!

Best wishes

That's a good elective to make a choice, considering the growing opportunities in the BPO market segment for Process consultants in the HR domain, six sigma adds value to your profile.

just pick it, if you are serious about HR and making a career as a Subject Matter expert (you would be callled on after gaining some operational experience to HR processes though)

Dear Rehaan,

Six Sigma is not only for technical person it is more applicable to non-technical people as well. Most of the organizations are driving towards this concept as they have to be process oriented. To each of the funtion six sigma can be applied.

It's is very good tool and I have undergone the training and I am doing a project in HR. I personaly find it to be very useful.
