SSC Changes the Six Sigma World and Shifts the Way Six Sigma Is Delivered: Early Adopters Include CBC and Cardinal Health

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Nov. 26 — Six Sigma Consultants, Inc. (SSC) ( ) introduces the “Six Sigma Deployment System,” a turnkey EDU product offering the actual Six Sigma success model and material used at GE, Allied Signal and others. The package consists of intellectual property, slides and detailed instructor notes, DMAIC training manuals, implementation roadmaps, and a multimedia library. The DMAIC training manuals are also available independently and are slated to be the standard for use in Universities, MBA programs, and the continuing education sector.

The product represents the evolution of the Six Sigma strategy since its beginning at Motorola — a decade of experience contained in a stand alone deployment package. The SSC Deployment System was designed to fill the gap between consultant-led deployments, which when done correctly have huge benefits but can be costly, and training programs, such as e-learning and “open enrollment,” that have limited bottom line results.

SSC President & CEO, Greg Brue, says, “We are removing the barriers so that any company, regardless of size or industry, can realize the proven benefits of Six Sigma. Like Microsoft did for standardizing the PC industry, we are creating the same ‘open-architecture’ for Six Sigma delivery.”

Cardinal Health, one of the early adopters of SSC’s Deployment Systems, summarizes the situation: “This product is long overdue. We have been waiting for this. Finally we’ve found the solution we have been looking for.”

Similarly, CBC Companies, another SSC Deployment System user, responds equally enthusiastically, “There is no other Six Sigma system like this currently available. It’s the only comprehensive system we’ve come across.”

The SSC Six Sigma Deployment System is scheduled for an international launch early 2004 and will be available in several languages including French, German, Spanish, Japanese and English.
