 Lean Six Sigma Certification by Brain Scan Now Available Over Web

Breakthrough Technology Improves Lean Six Sigma Certification Process

April 01, 2008 - COLUMBUS, OHIO – MoreSteam.com announced today a new strategic partnership with ISSISSIPPI.org to apply advanced technology to elevate the Lean Six Sigma certification process. Using proprietary internet-based brain scan technology developed by ISSISSIPPI researchers, Lean Six Sigma professionals can now be certified using a completely objective, scientifically rigorous process – at a fraction of the cost and time required by old school methods such as real-world project evaluations, and question-based testing. This innovative web-based brain scan is completely non-invasive and takes less than a minute to complete. The certification process is now available at no cost to all qualified Lean Six Sigma practitioners at www.ississippi.org.

ISSISSIPPI CEO Zoltan Minsky summarized the approach as follows: “We operate under the old adage that “Nature hates a vacuum” – and there has certainly been a vacuum in the arena of Lean Six Sigma certification. We’ve seen certifications based on pretend projects, certifications based on fill-in-the-blank projects, certifications based on 4th grade math tests, and certifications based solely on credit card signatures. The ISSISSIPPI process will finally provide a definitive skill assessment based on real science, not conjecture.”

“Organizations are very concerned about the reliability of credentials,” states MoreSteam.com President Bill Hathaway. “We believe that this technology represents a faster, better, and cheaper path toward the goal of robust and meaningful certification. Certification can now be administered on a worldwide basis using a single standard, at virtually no cost – that’s what I call globalization.”
