Before even thinking about introducing Six Sigma into your business, you need to know that it is going to produce the results you want right? Of course you do. Is Six Sigma just the latest management ‘buzzword’ or is it a quality management programme that produces significant results?

Six Sigma only appears to be a little different than TQM in terms of Quality tools, techniques, and principles, but from a global perspective it’s a whole new animal. Some consultants are earning six figure salaries, CEOs of large companies are reporting millions of pounds saved… but why does Six Sigma work?

The following blog will outline 5 reasons why introducing Six Sigma to your business effectively can 100% positively affect your bottom line.


A variety of hugely successful blue chip organisations have been implementing Six Sigma for a while now and have found it highly effective. The likes of Apple, NASA, Motorola, Microsoft, Sony and Ford are to name a few.

A successful team is one of the most influential driving forces behind any successful business. But, how do you get the most out of your team?

Six Sigma incorporates a very efficient uses of highly trained, cross-functional, and empowered teams to locate and make improvements. Black Belts are trained to get the best from high performing teams and Green Belts are team members with capability to deliver significant savings through Six Sigma projects.


Six Sigma uses metrics that focus on customer Critical to Quality (CTQ) measures and a single scale called DPMO (Defects Per Million Opportunities) This means that improvement activities deliver results that will directly impact ad benefit your customers.


The use of defect metrics (DPMO) allows comparisons from division to division, department to department, process to process, etc.… across the organisation.


Making an effective change in an organisation usually requires a change of company culture. Employees need to be inspired to want to make positive change and innovate.

Implementation of Six Sigma creates a new environment that naturally promotes the creation of continuous improvement efforts.
