Six Sigma is a data-driven quality methodology for eliminating defects in any process, may it be in manufacturing or service organizations. It involves a statistical representation of a process that is performing at Six Sigma level where it is able to produce not more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. A Six Sigma defect is anything outside customer requirements and a Six Sigma opportunity is the total quantity of chances a process undergoes. Undoubtedly, it is a gargantuan but doable task. Motorola, GE, Allied Signal, and many other successful companies can attest to this.
This weblog therefore will be THE resource for everything about Six Sigma—from tools/methodologies, training and certification, benefits and savings, and allied continuous improvement strategies. Through this blog, too, companies who are working toward Six Sigma will find a venue to express or share their thoughts and experiences while implementing this initiative. The blog will be both a reference tool and a portal of useful information.
