    I am beginning to put together a research proposal for my disertation and am wondering if anyone can point me toward two sources of information.
    1. What is the approximate number of GB/BB/MBB worldwide.
    2. How many or what percentage of the Fortune 500/1000 have implemented six sigma.
    If you can point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated.

    Dear Dan:
    Good questions but I’d be surprised if you get any response.  Let me see if I can’t stir up the pot for you (smile)…
    I try to keep my finger on the pulse of Six Sigma here in San Diego and so a semi-wild guess for our area is ~10-20 of ~75-150 large companies.  Therefore, based on these figures one might wildly estimate that ~17% (~7% to 27%) of all large companies in America have switched so far.  I’ve made a ton of assumptions here, one big one is that all large companies are alike which I know isn’t the case.  I believe San Diego tends to have a lot more small companies.
    Of course, lots of companies are considering it and we are now seeing all types of industries making the switch.
    I hope that helps bring in some real answers.  Good luck either way.

    To the original requestor, did you ever find the information you were seeking?
    I’m interested in finding information on the size of the Six Sigma market in the U.S. If anyone has any useful information, please pass it on.
