    I have an MBA in TQM/SPC and a PhD on organizational
    management and leadership and the basic difference I have seen
    between the two is that Six allows for more management
    governance in the process whereas TQM is heavy in statistics. With TQM, the numbers are the primary focus when obtaining zero
    defects. TQM also requires management to address the reality of
    hard data over politics and this is where many executives get their
    feelings hurt when their view of reality isn’t backed up by hard
    data.In essence 6 is more QUAL/QUAN whereas TQM is heavy QUAN.
    TQM is VERY, sometimes overtly SPC heavy and face it, even those
    who majored in stats often wonder why they did.
