    Hello.  I am working on a presentation and I would like to give an estimate of how many companies have deployed six sigma worldwide and an estimate of how many consulting companies there are.  Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    i thought you were working on data cubes? if so, aggregate the estimates: five thousand companies and three hundred consulting firms. your manager will never know. he’s living in the world of data cubes …

    The following is a recent article with some summary data of six sigma (excluding # of companies) since Motorola started the initiative (all of these numbers are somewhat dubious …). While it may be impossible to get a number of implementations (including failed implementations?) a more narrow research could focus on the number of companies in your industry or at least the top 10 players and show how many of these have implemented six sigma. there are listings on this site that show summaries of companies by industry. you may be able to piece something together that way.
    … glad you’re not the one who’s telling what he can’t do, but rather refocus on what you can do …

    The number of companies that think they have a robust Six Sigma program: a gajillion.
    The number of companies that actually have a robust 6S Program: probably 1/4 Gajillion.
    In seriousness, this question has been put out there before…try a search (above-right)
