Michael Cyger


Founder of iSixSigma


I first discovered the power of Six Sigma in 1995 when I worked for GE. In those days, then-CEO Jack Welch was focused 100% on making Six Sigma the last and greatest initiative to transform the business under his leadership.

When I left GE and helped start-up Six Sigma at an online-only banking division of Citigroup called Citi f/i, I realized just how hard it was to implement Lean and Six Sigma without the resources that were common at GE. Most, if not all, of the major banks I interacted with on Wall Street also were experiencing difficulty.

So I started in 2000 as a way to share information, ask and answer questions, and create a support system for those interested in implementing breakthrough improvement at their organizations.

In the years that followed, we launched the iSixSigma jobs board ( to help connect the best people with the finest companies, and the iSixSigma store ( to share templates, presentations, ebooks and more. Here’s the full history:
