The methodology is sound if used correctly.
I agree with Chris above. It always comes down to engagement, leader support and resources when measuring success.April 12, 2018 at 9:00 pm #202470

No. Six sigma is just one of many process improvement methodologies/toolkits. The most appropriate one depends on the problem we are trying to solve. Six sigma is about identifying the causes of defects and reducing the defect rate. It works very well for that. In my opinion lean six sigma, 6-ToC (six sigma plus theory of constraints), and other attempts to develop an overarching methodology muddy the waters and make it more difficult to navigate. If there is an overarching methodology it’s DMAIC, which should not be conflated with six sigma.
