John P. Reiling, PMP: How Six Sigma and PM Certification Compare


Why would you earn the Six Sigma Green Belt certification, whether you are a certified PM or not? This post highlights some key considerations that can help you decide for yourself. Here are five things to consider – comparing Six Sigma to project management, whether you are PM-certified or not:

  1. Project Management is broad…Six Sigma is more specific, but conceptually broad.
  2. Six Sigma is in demand in many industries.
  3. There is a career track for Six Sigma.
  4. Six Sigma is more knowledge-centric – analytical, consulting, engineering…
  5. There is an overlap between SS and PM – hence you can earn PDUs.

In the end, Six Sigma – especially starting with Six Sigma Green Belt – certification is very doable for a typical business professional. For more detail, see Comparing Six Sigma Green Belt to PM Certificationin the blog.
