What is Lean Six Sigma?









Errors and non-value added tasks at work and in Human Resources Management cause organizations


Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes.  Six Sigma at many organizations simply means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection.


Lean is a tool used by businesses to streamline manufacturing and production processes. The main emphasis of Lean is on cutting out unnecessary and wasteful steps in the creation of a product so that only steps that directly add value to the product are taken.

What does "Barbelo" mean?








Through a kind of self-mirroring or self-contemplation, this supreme First Principle produces the first "created" entity.  The first emanation of the Absolute, and the source of all subsequent manifestation, is a female principle, variously referred to as Thought, Providence, Fore-thought or Foreknowledge (in Greek, all these words have female gender), and "Barbelo".


Gnostic cosmology casts the female creator principle in a dual role.  In fact, there are two Divine Mothers.  The higher one, Barbelo, is the creative Thought of the ineffable Parent, who may also descend for the purpose of salvation of those below.  The lower one, Sophia, is the accidental creator of the ignorant demiurge who made the cosmos, but also works to free the divine spirit captured by the demiurge in human form.


In the Apocryphon of John, Barbelo is described as "The first power, the glory, Barbelo, the perfect glory in the aions, the glory of the revelation."
