Six Sigma in today's business
Currently, Six Sigma is a combination of the Statistical metric and TQM. The main components of Six Sigma retained from TQM. With Six Sigma, the organization performance is not only quality but availability, reliability, delivery performance and after sales service. In additionally, Six Sigma methodology generally build the structure under which training of employess is formalized. One might argue that this nature may create the hierarchy in an organization. However, instead of rely on only leader, black belt trainer, all employees should involve in activities that impact to customer satisfaction.

Analysis Six Sigma
Many experts have positive viewpiont towards Six Sigma, as they believe this strategy help the organization improve their performance. This statement is valid. However, Six Sigma is not majic which any company will always be successful. It is required the good vision from top management, practical and hand on training. Nevetheless, any strategy cannot be success by itself without contribution from people so that the failure occurs when people in organization do not understand and or buy in the concept.

Required factors for transformation in OZ
In order to keep company developing, many business strategies have been adopted. However, whenever the failure occurs we normally think that the strategy is wrong. One might think this statement is valid, but numerous people believe that the strategy is often right. The challenge will be how we implement it. Having study, the necessary factors to be sucess in any type of theories might be these elements: the program was seen as the means to achieve the business goals, gain the engagement from all people not only manager but also the front line staff, leaders felt accountable but supported. Training was meaningful for the job in hand. Furthermore, the most important part is people's mindset.
All in all, the real challenge is not the theories that we decide to adopt but the way to adopt is much more important.

The impact of the book on the management thinking: The management that changed the world, i find this book is interesting. It is one of the best books by two industrial experts, James Womack and Daniel Jones. Some people believe that the term "Lean" has been worl wide by this book. The book defined Leas as...compared to mass production it uses less of evertything such as human efforts, plant area, tools and working hours. I however, found that the key point is how the management team capture the value of product that will be served the customers' need.
