    Mike,
    Could not agree more, but I see it as a degeneration.  As the methodology goes away from its origin, it has been “customer-ized” by those people in the red shoes.  Can you blame marketers that see the opportunity to cash-in on the trend.  They only really need to sound good, not function at a high level. (besides who knows the difference.)
    Six Sigma is being reduced to little more than waste reducing lean projects because that is what business leaders are looking for… a silver bullet that will yeild results with in a week.  There is little to no strategy in most businesses.  It seems most management is stuck on cutting expense today, which explains the success of knock-offs and lean processing.  Will it yield the success that Welch saw, very doubtful.  It does however deliver what the CTQ of the customer, quick easy short-term improvement.  The power of the methodology, (used by responsible managers) has been reduced to little more than the most basic process improvement.
