Six Sigma is the name given to a management concept originated by Motorola in the late 1980’s with stunning results. It enable them to become one of the first winners of the prestigious ‘Baldrige Award for Quality’ and is claimed to be responsible for very impressive improvements in all aspects of business performance.
The results were so impressive that Six Sigma soon attracted the attention of other serious organisations in the USA and in particular Jack Welch the high profile Chief Executive of GE. There, the concept was introduced company wide with equally impressive results. Business performance at GE is now so impressive that the company has become the benchmark for the rest of industry.
Other star performers such as Allied Signal, Navistar, Polaroid, Bombardier, etc., also developed Six Sigma programmes and soon became disciples of the concept and advocated its use down through their supply chains. With such a success record and backed by these influential names, it was bound to be only a matter of time before Six Sigma began to appear in the United Kingdom.
During 1998, a number of British subsidiaries and suppliers to these large companies found themselves being introduced to the concept by their American customers with the result that Six Sigma is now the most popular means of continuous business performance Improvement.
