Is Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing still required learning for IE?

I was reading posts from a couple years back and those were the main answers on how to be a successful IE. Is it still relevant now?

Also, what books should I buy and what softwares should I download to become a great IE?

I had plenty of interviews for industrial engineering positions.
It seems to be very competitive out there.
Employers compare resumes.
Having a six sigma and/or lean certifications can help.

Good luck out there!

Richard,

A great IE is not great because he's read XYZ books or owns ABC softwares. Great IEs build systems that solve problems for people. Focus on doing that. The software and books are just tools, you have to solve peoples' problems for them, or practice giving people the impression that you could use your IE skills to solve their problems for them to want to hire you.

The softwares and books change every year, but having people believe in your problem-solving skills is a timeless and incredibly valuable asset.
