- Quality; Six Sigma
- Duration : 5 days
Implementing Six Sigma into a corporate culture improves processes, maximises business performance and adds to the bottom line. Commitment to the process has proved to be a phenomenal success for a number of companies in the United States: Honeywell's application of the Six Sigma methods saved £422 million in 1999; Motorola has claimed more than £10.5 billion in savings since Six Sigma was introduced to the organisation and cites one example where it reduced the manufacturing time for pagers from 40 days to less than one hour. Medium and large-sized multinational companies, including Sony, Nokia and American Express, have all seen results on a similar scale.
Leaders and managers of organisations are continually challenged by both the need for success now, and to then sustain that success into the future. There is a constant stream of “new ideas” of how to get and stay at the top. Six Sigma maybe considered as one of these “new ideas” but looking closely will show a significant difference. Six Sigma is a comprehensive and flexible system for achieving, sustaining and maximising business success.
Six Sigma is uniquely driven by a close understanding of customer needs, disciplined use of facts, data and statistical analysis, and diligent attention to managing, improving and reinventing business processes.
