Six Sigma is a customer-driven approach that provides an overall framework of quality improvement. The methodology follows a disciplined problem solving approach.
The goal of a six sigma program is to improve customer satisfaction through reduction and elimination of nonconformities. It is achieved, not through increased inspection activities which only add cost, but through breakthrough process improvement and the reduction in variation.
The results are increased customer satisfaction, product and service reliability, and improved company financial performance. (Save 20% if you register for the certificate. Call 952.358.8343 to gain discount.)
