Six Sigma

What is Six Sigma ?

Six Sigma could best be described as quality that strives for near perfection. It serves as a disciplined data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driven towards six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specifications limit) in any process within an organization. The processes can range from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service delivery. It is the implementation of a measurement based strategy with the purpose of improvement and variation reduction through the application of the Six Sigma improvement project. The Six Sigma Certification is a confirmation of a particular individual’s capabilities with respect to specific competencies. Like any other certification, this certification indicates that an individual has completed the necessary requirements from the company granting the certification. The certification on its own however does not summarise the worth of a true quality professional.
