As such, Sparkman has reached a “significant level of professional recognition, indicating a proficiency in and a comprehension of Six Sigma principles and practices,” according to ASQ.
“ASQ provides certification as a way to provide formal recognition to professionals who have demonstrated an understanding of, and a commitment to, quality techniques and practices in their job and career,” Stephen Hacker, ASQ chair, said.
