What is Six Sigma?

Six Sigma is a disciplined program for improving quality in all aspects of a company’s products and processes. At its core, Six Sigma works to apply quality metrics CTQ’s (Critical to Quality) that are important to a customer and then to understand the relationships between the inputs to the product or process and the outputs (metrics).

Six Sigma calls for businesses to continually monitor and improve processes to constantly improve performance and profitability.

Six Sigma is more than just a quality system like TQM or ISO. It has become a part of company cultures and a way of doing business. As Geoff Tennant describes in his book Six Sigma: SPC and TQM in Manufacturing and Services: “Six Sigma is many things. Six Sigma can be seen as: a vision; a philosophy; a symbol; a metric; a goal; a methodology.”

Thousands of companies worldwide have learned and adopted Six Sigma.

Some of America’s business super stars have made Six Sigma part of their success lore. Among them are Larry Bossidy of Allied Signal (now Honeywell), and Jack Welch of General Electric Company. Rumor has it that Larry and Jack were playing golf one day and Jack bet Larry that he could implement Six Sigma faster and with greater results at GE than Larry did at Allied Signal. Both companies won in that bet.
