Sorry I'm a little late to the game, but I get this in digest form and
sometimes things pile up.

My company is big on Lean 6 Sigma, but the certifications stop at Green
Belt or Black Belt. (For the record, I'm GB certified and BB trained,
working on certification.) These certifications are not in a particular
area such as tech writing, finance, et cetera... they are certifications
for facilitation.

Each company tends to put their own little twist on things, so I can
only speak for how things are at my company.

Subject: Lean Six Sigma Black Belt or Green Belt in tech writing

Has anyone become Six Sigma (lean or otherwise) certified as a green
belt or

black belt in tech writing? Is there such a thing? I will be working
on a

project in which several business analysts are working on their green

certification in financial management and much is being made of this. It

seems like this certification is becoming more valued; I attended a

conference last year and several of the presentations focused on the
lean six

sigma process. I am curious about how it applies to tech comm.
