    A manager in my office is always talking about 6-sigma. Ive only just started so dont really understand it. From what he says its worth doing, something else for your CV. His always talking about blackbelt projects aswell...

    Several years ago when I was a jobbing sociologist, I did a research project on software development methodologies*. One of the conclusions was that good people do good work anyway and that the use of specific methodologies means that much time is spent trying to show that they did in fact follow the methodology.
