    Is there a minimum size for an organization before six sigma is successful and economical.
    Could a manufacturing organization with 250 employees and $100.00 million sales annually implement six sigma effectively.
    Thanks.

    The answer to that is no, size does not matter – in the general sense. I am a company of 1 right now, but that corporate entity is being built from a 6S (personal) initiative. Everything in my company runs through the initiative – expecially the voice of the customer. I am also building an initiative for a service organization which includes both athletic and dining facilities. The 6s skills are the same.

    Yes, you can make great improvements in a company of this size.  The last plant I did a 6 sigma project was a teir 1 facility doing around $74 million in sales.  The project ended up saving $300,000 a year in uptime and through put.

    Stan: Thanks for the comment, it reminds me that I am on the right track! After lots of years in IT, I decided to be a clock builder, rather than a clock watcher. What “sells” the customer is walking the talk, and leading by example is a successful approach!

    If a company with 300,000 employees can do it, so can a company with 1 or 250 people.
