Rhetorically speaking, what is the purpose of ISO9000? Is it a standard of expectation, much like Six Sigma? If an organization is currently performing to a Six Sigma level, would there even be a need for this standard? If this standard was perfectly deployed and implemented in a corporation, would it be a Six Sigma company? Do you think Six Sigma should be apart of ISO9000, or should it be the other way around? Is there any statistical evidence of a correlation between ISO9000 and business performance? Is it possible for a 4 sigma organization to be ISO9000 certified? What about a 3 sigma company, could it be ISO9000 certified? Where is the threshold, if any? It almost seems that you have a “subordinate” perspective of Six Sigma. What would happen if you turned this perspective upside-down?
How Can Six Sigma can be made part of ISO 9000 system implementation?
