CQE vs. Six Sigma

I have been in the quality field for over 12 years now. I have held the title of Quality Engineer for about three years and a Management Rep for about one year. I just took the CQA exam and plan to take the CQE exam when it is offered at the end of the year.

Recently I have tested the job market. The majority of employers are searching for ăSix Sigmaä experience. I am familiar with both green and black belt programs. I am aware of the philosophies and tools they use to accomplish their goals. In my opinion, they are not new. They actually overlap greatly with the BOK of the CQE. In my own opinion, the CQE BOK actually exceeds the scope of ăSix Sigmaä.

In my opinion, a CQE is of more value and worth than a practicing ăSix Sigmaä individual (green or black belt). But the CQE status is getting clouded over to the ăSix Sigmaä hype.

What is the general consensus us of the forum? Am I way off track here with my opinion? CQE vs. Six Sigma, who would win? I am interested in persuing one or the other. Should I go for the 1) CQE and become a better professional or 2) put on my slick used car salesman outfit and go for the latest buzz word Six Sigma and make myself more marketable?

Your comments, in my opinion, are correct. Six Sigma hype has clouded the picture to some degree. Any time anything 'new' hits the market, it generally enjoys the surge.
