Predatory Lean Six Sigma training providers whose pretense of serious certification is dragging the profession into the dirt. These firms offer their students online case studies (pretend projects) as a shortcut to actual project experience. The students may complete their training quickly, but they have no real-world experience to show for the cost of their course. Hiring managers and organizations generally dismiss or devalue Pretendicon Black Belt or Green Belt certification.
