Wes, isn't this similar to the famous "Hawthorne" effect regarding the employees placed in a room with better lighting, and supervisors evaluating the effect only to find it was the supervisor attention that improved the productivity, and not the new lights.

"By Jove, I think he's got it!"

Are you ready to be one of my new adherents, Ralph?

As soon as your check for $1,500.00 USD clears, I will be sending you a gilt-edged Certificate of Achievement to all the theories and principles of The Placebo Effect school of Quality.

(Note this is an introductory offer. Get in on the ground floor before prices go up!)

I have posted my anti-six-sigma diatrabes elsewhere in the Cove, but I thought this would make a humorous story. I received a phone call from a vendor of project management software. He picked up my name in conjunction with some Baldrige site, and stated his company made software used by many six sigma corporations, and he listed a few. I stated, that is no selling point for me, I am anti six sigma. He went on, and again referenced six sigma. I again said, you are not impressing me. So he actually asked me what I had against six sigma, of which I gave him my usual list. I also said if someone showed up trying to sell six sigma software to my employer I would be the first person at the front door with a shotgun. He finally realized he wasn't getting anywhere with his sales pitch.

Wes, I have been thinking about writing some How to books and developing some training classes on getting certified to your new Placebo Effect theory of quality. Could you please email the body of knowledge for the theory? Also, in the spirit of entrepreneurship, could you write a foreward for my book to give it some credibility?

Absolutely!
Close your eyes.
What do you see?
That's the body of knowledge.
The primary requirement for registration/certification to TPE (the official abbreviation for The Placebo Effect) is to make me and my current followers happy. This can be easily accomplished by sending lots of money, which we will spend on marketing to gain more adherents. Our primary marketing strategy is to play Cardinal Puff with a prospect until we "melt" all resistance.

From a 6S bent I was actually looking for some content in practical, workable alternatives. For the sake of defining 'workable' we can omit some of the traditional approaches that, for whatever reason, are not seeing the light of day from the adoption standpoint.

If the posts just above is what's available, then here's a club that will go well with future diatribes:

Surely you guys are better than this.
