About Six Sigma

Six Sigma is a quality improvement methodology for businesses which focuses on collecting and analysing data on business processes in order to identify where defects are occurring and decide how to reduce them. In organisations, Six Sigma is practised by specialised Six Sigma teams with different designations: Black and Master Black Belts oversee Six Sigma related activities, while Green and Yellow Belts work together with the Black Belts to help carry these activities out. Having been invented originally by Motorola in the 1980s, Six Sigma has since been taken on by many other companies and has proven itself as an effective method for quality improvement in business.

 

Case Study

Arguably the most famous case study on the use of Six Sigma is General Electric’s implementation of it in the 1990s.

In 1995, the owner of General Electric, Jack Welch, knew that the company was in need of a change of strategy. Their product quality was not what it once was and after seeing the success of Six Sigma at his friend Larry Bossidy’s company Allied Signal, he decided that it could be the answer.

Analysis showed that General Electric were currently running at 3 or 4 sigma. By raising this to Six Sigma, or 99.99966% perfection, the company could save between $7 billion and $10 billion. The choice was obvious.

GE introduced their Six Sigma program in 1996 with the goal of reaching the highest level of quality in just five years – Motorola took ten.

Jack Welch knew that Six Sigma could only deliver maximum benefit to GE if it was allowed to fully permeate the company’s processes and culture. This meant focusing on the product not only from the manufacturing perspective but also the value it was delivering to the customer. In addition, almost all employees attended two-week mandatory Six Sigma training. After the company had a few Black Belts these were then able to train other employees to become Green Belts, leading to the creation of Six Sigma teams who were able to carry out projects within the company.

GE’s success with Six Sigma also relied on how it was implemented by the executives. Every quarter, each executive was required to work on a Six Sigma project and have it reviewed in a quarterly meeting. The most successful executives were given stock options, creating a rewards culture where the best workers could see their Six Sigma work celebrated. Once workers could see that Six Sigma got the executives’ backing, it was easy to engage the other employees.  

In conclusion, General Electric is one of the biggest Six Sigma success stories because the company managed to completely turn itself around. In just two years, their revenues rose by 11% and their earnings increased by 13%. After five years, they reported savings of $12 billion. Nowadays, Six Sigma is an integral part of GE’s business model, as well as many other Fortune 500 companies.
