About The Six Sigma Way

This is the initially book to supply simple, non-technical info on learning and implementing Six Sigma.

Six Sigma is a company administration approach initially developed by Motorola, USA in 1981.

Six Sigma seeks to boost the standard of procedure outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects and reducing variability in production and company processes. It utilizes a set of standard administration techniques, including statistical techniques, and creates a unique infrastructure of individuals in the business ("Black Belts", "Green Belts", etc.) that are experts in these techniques. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an company follows a defined sequence of procedures and has quantified targets. These targets is financial (expense reduction or profit increase) or whatever is important to the customer of that procedure (cycle time, protection, delivery, etc.).

The expression six sigma originated from terminology associated with production, particularly terms associated with statistical modelling of production processes. The maturity of the production task is described by a sigma rating indicating its yield, or the percentage of defect-free goods it creates. A six-sigma task is 1 in which 99.99966% of the treatments produced are without defects, compared to a one-sigma task in which just 31% are without defects. Motorola set a objective of "six sigmas" for all of its production operations and this objective became a byword for the administration and technology practices utilized to achieve it.

About Pete Pande and alternative authors

Pete Pande is a respected writer and consultant in the field of company change and improvement, with over 20 years using businesses and leaders in countless industries and parts of the planet. As President and CEO of Pivotal Resources, Inc. he has led lucrative business change initiatives for such customers as GE Capital, Cisco Systems, Starwood Hotels, HSBC, American Express and BP.

Pete’s special and useful perspective on how to achieve meaningful and sustained success in company change is presented in many best-selling books, including The Six Sigma Way (called by Forbes magazine as the most influential company books of the previous 20 years) and The Six Sigma Leader: How Top Executives can Prevail in the 21st Century (with Foreword by Jim McNerney, Chairman of The Boeing Company).

The foundation for his insights into company change was laid in Pete’s early profession as a consultant and trainer in issue solving and choice creating, where he had the chance to function straight with professionals, center managers and even front-line employees on a range of strategic and daily company issues. Exposed to the problems leaders and managers had in clarifying challenges and developing powerful solutions, he used that experience to supporting the “Total Quality Management” movement. He counseled company leaders at Chevron, Clorox, Read-Rite and alternative leading businesses on
how to organize and boost the impact of their change efforts.

In 1993, Pete established Pivotal Resources with all the mission of providing innovative and useful help for company change of all kinds. Pivotal’s vision of “building enduring desirable companies” — companies that achieve short-term success while creating a long-term legacy of strength, financial performance and customer loyalty — has been an inspiration for numerous top professionals and companies all over the world.

In 1996, Pivotal was chosen as among the lead consulting services to help the groundbreaking Six Sigma initiative at GE Capital (GECC), the big profit engine of Jack Welch’s lucrative stint as head of General Electric. Pete and the Pivotal team worked carefully with GECC leaders to develop a vision, train professionals and administration and apply company change to drive results. Even though GECC was absolutely a effective marketplace leader, Pete’s guidance helped the organization achieve billions of dollars in expense savings and unique profits. More importantly, most talented managers developed by Pivotal’s team have gone on to executive positions and expanded success both at GE and at other firms all over the world.

Several key principles have driven the success of Pete and Pivotal Resources in building long-term, value-adding engagements with numerous leading worldwide businesses. These include:

» Change as a Core Competency – Instead of concentrating on “programs” like Lean Six Sigma or projects that have narrow impact, company leaders have to be worried with building the ability of their companies to adjust and evolve because swiftly and effectively as possible. Creating sustainable value and development in the 21st century usually happen just if a organization will reply to changing requires and chances.

» Improvement as a Company Skill – Too frequently, efforts to enhance a company and even to execute approach are delegated to “specialists” or taken over by technical staff (IT, standard, operations). While those roles and techniques are significant, regularly evaluating and improving a company should be a administration and leadership talent. That signifies concepts and techniques that cause real results need to be useful, conveniently understood, and capable to bring out the creativity and talent of several people—not really the “experts.”

» Assumption-Busting as Constant – To establish and follow a successful and meaningful vision, companies should continually review the fact and assumptions on which their actions and techniques are based. Assumption-busting refuses to signify continual direction-changing (not surprisingly, too much change is a bit more usually a problem), but very assists a company refine goals, adjust priorities and—very critically—avoid the complacency that frequently follows success, and which sets the stage for a company downfall.

These and different tips, which challenge leaders and managers to think more carefully about their actions while encouraging proactive procedures to drive change, have assisted create Pete a valued consultant to companies and have produced Pivotal Resources a key partner to various leading companies.
