Six sigma is a known process improvement technique used by organisations to increase their efficiency and quality. Six Sigma employs various quality management methods, empirical and statistical, to identify and eliminate defects. For each project, there is a distinct sequence of steps followed, with specific value targets, to increase customer satisfaction through better quality.
Mainly, there are five phases involved in most six sigma projects, including Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control. Application of six sigma practices into work ensures that there is an adequate focus on the customer, processes are smooth flowing, stakeholder relationship and communication is appropriate and operations are leaner and simpler.
However, to be successful in implementing six sigma in its operations and achieving the desired benefits, an organisation should have leadership commitment to the initiative and those playing important parts in the implementation process should understand and be updated with all information related to six sigma.
