Jim OdomAs I was getting ready for an upcoming training class, I came across the following reasons why Six Sigma has been so successful for many years and thought I’d share it with you.  It is taken from the Sept. 1999 issue of Quality Progress, “Why Should Statisticians Pay Attention to Six Sigma?” by R.D. Snee.

  1. Bottom line results
  2. Upper management involvement
  3. Disciplined approach (DMAIC)
  4. Short project completions (typically 3 – 6 months)
  5. Clearly defined measures of success
  6. Infrastructure of trained individuals (black belts and green belts)
  7. Customers and processes are the focus
  8. Sound statistical approach
