    Hi
    As long as we can align the external customer “Y” to leadership team KRAs and put a method in place to achieve this through “simple” or “quick” or “lean” means – it would work well. The key here is that Six Sigma must be spoken about, focused upon and made a key result area for every one in the organization top-down.

    We tried this in our company – and it worked.

    Hi Poornima

    To think of it we know what kind of credibility did ISO 9001:1994 landed organizations into down the line, when many companies had certifications purely for market requirements and not for serious process improvement efforts. And yes there are registering bodies who ensured that there were more and more orgn. getting “certified” so as to increase the impression of the clientele list they serviced.

    With Six Sigma, it is really to be seen to believe how some organizations have used it. Few have certainly, demonstrated major improvements in the earlier phases of DMAIC – and then there are others who have reported upto the Anlyze Phase alone and never really published down the Control Phase.

    So in trying to answer this question to myself, I found that if there were organizations (lets talk of India) who were serious, there could be some genuine results demonstrating reduced variations – thought the impact converted to dollars could at times reduce the phenomena. However, given the slump in the IT economy in general, organisations could gain heavily if and only if they were demonstrated perseverence in implementing Six Sigma..and yes then it does not remain a fad no more. Otherwise, it could last as long as the Statistical Process Control Clause of ISO 9001:1994 did.

    Hi folks

    On going thru these emails it appears that possibly because of a non-representation or because of lack of a more visible forum, we BB’s/MBB’s/GMBBs and Champions mostly apprear like those blind men with the elephant.
    I am a trained Six Sigma Black Belt – I was trained by practicing MBBs from Six Sigma Academy and Johnson Controls. And guess what, back home, I am yet to find one organization in the Software Industry who has a presence in the market wrt Six Sigma.. Sad though, these Software organizations have claimed their fame all the way to other models / frameworks ISO, CMM et al.
    In India though, KPMG Peat Marwick is conducting training on the SSA model. I have heard of TQMI as well, and some other small time “consultants”..and they are of their own individual classes with certainly lots of variation at the end of the day.
