Six Sigma Training (6 Sigma) is fundamentally a business management strategy, developed by Motorola that is gaining worldwide attention and is being embraced by every type of organisation for its remarkable success in improving business
process efficiency. Originally developed to improve manufacturing processes in reducing variation in a process and consequently reducing defects to near perfection, it has subsequently been extended to any process -- from
manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.
The primary objective of the Six Sigma methodology is the implementation of a measurement-based strategy that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction through application structured improvement projects, using the DMAIC approach. The Six Sigma DMAIC process (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control) is an improvement system for existing processes falling outside specification and subsequently reducing defects to a goal of 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Six Sigma processes are executed by Six Sigma Green Belts and Six Sigma Black Belts, and are overseen by Six Sigma Master Black Belts.
Six Sigma green and black belts are well sought after by many organisations for their problem solving prowess and are highly respected in all business sectors. According to the Six Sigma Academy, Black Belts save companies approximately $230,000 per project and can complete four to 6 projects per year. General Electric, one of the most successful companies implementing Six Sigma, has estimated benefits on the order of $10 billion during the first five years of implementation. GE first began Six Sigma in 1995 after Motorola and Allied Signal blazed the Six Sigma trail. Since then, thousands of companies around the world have discovered the far reaching benefits of Six Sigma.
