Six Sigma fashion

According to some people, Six Sigma is a fashion, a trend in large multinational companies to improve their processes, cut their costs and increase their profitability. It is also argued, that the excitement of members about Six Sigma programs is faded away after a while and the motivation of employees can be reduced. A successful implementation of Six Sigma programmes is very expensive and involves a lot of training and mostly large companies are able to invest in it and plan for long-term. Therefore, Six Sigma programmes may fail after a short-term success. Six Sigma is another quality management system like TQM, ISO, EFQM which needs to work with other approaches like Deming's SOPK, PDSA in order to be successful. Six Sigma is a great tool depending on its application and implementation by an organisation, as well as, what are the objectives of an organisation with Six Sigma programmes.
