Six sigma, Slow Process?

Although of its effectiveness, development of processes using six sigma can be time consuming. It approaches the processes by isolating the problems and handle each at a time (cycle). Moreover, it does not handle the causes of the problem as a group. only by going through cycles  usually these causes can be revealed and their degree of contribution to the problem is defined. Therefore, achieving a target of 6 sigma can take a quite long period of time.

In such competitive environment some can assume that the advantage for who starts earlier. Stages can not be overstepped hence a business has to go in sequence through the cycles. However, the argument will be about how good the process is designed in the first time and how much improvement it requires.

It would be interesting to look for opportunities to develop six sigma to become more time efficient. In the meanwhile it proves to be one of the best available depending on the results of the companies that have applied it.
