    That is an excellent question.  I am very curious to see the responses to that as well.

    Jaycee,
    Rod Howes has been working successfully with Crompton Greives in India. The CEO has vision and has stayed visible through the deployment. The Leadership Team stays involved.
    Why don’t you go find out why it is working there then we won’t have to go through another inane diatride on why it does work.
    Good luck.

    There are all sorts of things that influence the success of any program, but Six Sigma is really a company transforming exercise, so to have a chance at success, it needs the support of top management.
    It’s not sufficient for management to go along with it.  They need to be behind it 110%.  If the CEO and his staff go off to Six Sigma Academy, if the top management levels are all expected to certify as Green Belts and have meaningful Six Sigma goals that affect their compensation, if the company’s best and brightest are recruited to drive the program, then the program will likely be successful.

    I just browsed through a statement from a US productivity consulting firm. That US company claimed that a company’s top management can laid back in the boradroom with their productivity program and can guarantee 20-30% savings.
    Any experienced Six Sigma practioner should aware that achieving 30% productivity improvement in a 2 or 3-sigma company is a piece of nut. Actually, what that consultants do is just to pluck the bottom fruits and then go off with handsome consultancy fees.
    This kind of improvement without top management commitment is tantamount to digging their graveyard in the long run.
