Becoming Successful at Six Sigma Deployment! How to Make Six Sigma Last? 2008-01-1277

Over the years Six Sigma has evolved and many creative versions have resulted - Lean Six Sigma, Transactional Six Sigma, and Design for Lean Sigma. Almost everyone in the manufacturing industry has tried or plans to try implementing Six Sigma to achieve near zero defects (3.4 defects per million opportunities).
In spite of all this, most Six Sigma programs never take off as planned or die out after a period of time. Even the places where Six Sigma is being practiced, the organization may never see the financial benefits that were promised!
Six sigma requires a basic shift in the way of thinking about quality. It requires change and managing change can be challenging.
In this white paper we will discuss what needs to be done to make Six Sigma stick so that it becomes “the” way of Quality in the organization. We will list the key steps to implement Six Sigma successfully.
