    Does the Motorola Trademark on Six Sigma cause issues with organizations implementing the approach and utilizing the same naming conventions?  (i.e. adopting the DMAIC acronyms, etc.) 
    If so, how do so many companies get away with calling their initiative – Six Sigma?

    Mikel Harry may sue you for using his black belt service mark if your company is in US.Insofar I have no knowledge that anyone was sued by Motorola for using “Six Sigma”.

    For those who have been attentively following the earthshattering legal battles of Mr. Harris, the following link might be quite amusing. It looks like the very legal system that Harris’ uses to ensure his preeminence and legacy has caught up to the methodology to improve the processes that support the protection of his rights. … Ooops… It looks like Harris is banging his head against the legal walls http://www.dupontlegalmodel.com/files/onlinelibrary_detail.asp?libid=37

    Case Study: Using Six Sigma to Reduce Discovery Costs and Improve the Process of Managing Records (Free five minute preview) Presented by Jason R. Baron, Esq. (National Archives and Records Administration) and James L. Michalowitz, Esq. (DuPont Company)
    The extraordinary costs associated with records discovery have created a newfound awareness of the need to improve the process by which records are managed. This two-part session will begin with a “real world” overview of the problem: one organization’s experience with discovery requests – detailing how complex and costly they can be. Part Two will focus on how, at another organization, the world’s foremost process improvement methodology, Six Sigma, was applied to improve the process of managing its (legal) records – detailing the costs savings, risks reductions and quality improvements that were achieved. Six Sigma may well be the best way to achieve significant improvements in the processes of managing (legal) records. Learn about it and how your organization could apply it to the management of its electronic records.
