    1. It removes the excuse management often gives for not improving organizational processes
    2. It requires people to actually use data to make decisions rather than gut feelingThere is no disadvantage for doing SS CORRECTLY. A poor deployment will cause all kinds of problems but a properly executed deployment of SS tools, methodology and principles can improve any organization.

    Well, there may be a couple of disadvantages:
    1 – You may eventually have to come into contact with Stan &
    2 – You will now be accountable for your performance since data is being used for evaluation.
    Other than that there are none.

    Darth was right to put emphasis on the word “correctly” in his post.  Unfortunately, there are more bad deployments out there than folks are willing to admit.
    Assuming you are contemplating a Six Sigma deployment, I highly recommend “Understanding Six Sigma Deployment Failures” by Mark Carnell (available on the Isixsigma.com website).
