To your surprise, there is no ownership of six sigma methodology ! So, tomorrow if you want you can claim an anonymous six sigma certification in the name of ”Modi Six Sigma’ ‘Gandhi Six Sigma’ ‘Yadav Six Sigma’ or ‘Kumar Six Sigma’ and no one can legally object you. But still you want to spend thousands of rupees to get a recognized six sigma certification (either online or offline) and a beneficial training. 

Now the question that arises is of which institute and why? This decision depends on many factors like-

  1. Course content
  2. How well is it recognized
  3. Validity of the certificate
  4. Brand name of Institute
  5. Duration
  6. Cost

And many more…
