“Faces” of 6 Sigma.
In the process of researching and tryin to filter out what articles and books I would use for six sigma PMA, I stumbled across a journal which talks about the different “faces” of six sigma being used either as a Company -Wide Strategy, as an Improvement Program or just as a Toolbox….and i have been wondering if the application of six sigma can work; following just the use of only one of these “faces”…from the little knowledge i have acquired,I think one basic element of six sigma implementation is to improve the business of an organisation by waste reduction and minimizing defects.
So I am of the view that the Company -Wide Strategy initiative is a better approach since it starts from the top management down to the bottom involving everyone in the organisation rather than six sigma being used as an improvement program or as a toolbox which focuses on just certain departments or units within the organisation.
