“Anytime you catch yourself focusing on a problem, negativity, or self doubt, as yourself this question: What is the one thing I can do differently that could make this situation better?”

Story
Introduction
Robert Thompson is an engineer and manager by education; QSE professional by experience and statistical enthusiast out of necessity. Robert believes that although it is easy to lie with statistics, it is hard to tell the truth without them.

He holds a BEng (Hons) from the University of Northumbria, an MSc in Total Quality, Safety and Environmental Management from the Open University and an MBA from the University of Durham, along with several other qualifications. After completing a mechanical apprenticeship, he moved into planning for the offshore industry, followed by a move into quality for a consulting firm. Next he moved into high-volume electronics as a quality manager and finally to a filter manufacturing company in NE England.

He is an EFQM Business Excellence Assessor, Six Sigma Black Belt, Member of the Institute of Quality Assurance, Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, American Society for Quality, and also the Chartered Institute of Management.

You can send him an email here:

learnsigma @ gmail [dot] com

(Brackets added to thwart spammers, but just use the usual email format.)

Your email will be read and while he makes every attempt to personally respond to everyone who contacts him, due to the large volume of messages he receives daily a reply may not be prompt. Also if your e-mail doesn't contain a question that requires a response, please don't be offended if he don't reply.

Elsewhere on the internet

Rob also has another other blog: here which is all about his interests outside of work. You may also want to check out his Posterous blog where all manner of random stuff gets stored: check it out here.
