Bill Warner receives ASQ-Certified Six Sigma Green Belt

Bill Warner (Woodring College of Education) has completed the requirements to be named an American Society for Quality-Certified Six Sigma Green Belt. As such, Warner has reached a significant level of professional recognition, indicating a proficiency in and a comprehension of Six Sigma principles and practices, according to a press release from the society.

CSSGB professionals analyze and solve quality problems and are involved in quality improvement projects. Warner is also certified by ASQ as a Certified Quality Manager/Organizational Excellence and by the Project Management Institute as a Certified Project Management Professional. He teaches College of Business and Economics MBA seminars.

“ASQ provides certification as a way to provide formal recognition to professionals who have demonstrated an
understanding of, and a commitment to, quality techniques and practices in their job and career,” said Peter
Andres, ASQ president, in the release. “This is a great accomplishment and, although not a formal registration or licensure, it represents a high level of peer recognition.”

In order to sit for the Six Sigma Green Belt examination, an individual must have three years of work experience related to the Body of Knowledge. Certified SSGBs apply tools and techniques from the DMAIC model (define, measure, analyze, improve and control) while working on Six Sigma projects under the supervision of a Black Belt.
