What 6Sigma is
Among the various methodologies for organizational improvement developed in the second half of the 20th Century, one was particularly successful in large companies such as Motorola and General Electric. This methodology is called “6Sigma”.
The name originates from the conspicuous use of statistics with this methodology, especially with its applications in the area of process control.
Along with this, people’s ways of solving problems in dealing with process change and improvement are analysed. To complete its contents, there are organisational models regarding hierarchies and training processes.
Utilization of 6Sigma
Although traditionally adopted by large companies, the principles underlying this approach can also be applied in small and medium-sized enterprises wishing to make the leap towards excellence.
