Six Essential Features of Six Sigma:
A genuine focus on the customer, backed by an attitude that puts
the customers' need first, as well as by systems and strategies that
serve to tie in the business to the "Voice of the Customer".
Data and fact driven management, with effective measurement
systems that track both results and outcomes (Ys) and Process, input,
and other predictive factors (Xs).
Process focus, management, and improvements, as an engine for
growth and success. Processes in Six Sigma are documented, communicated
measured and refined on an ongoing basis.
Proactive Management, involving habits and practices that
anticipate problems and changes, apply facts and data, and question
assumptions about goals and " how we do things".
Boundary less collaboration, featuring cooperation, between
internal groups and with customers, suppliers, and supply chain
A drive for perfection and yet a tolerance for failure that gives
people in a Six sigma organization the freedom to test new approaches
even while managing risks and learning from mistakes, thereby "raising
the bar" of performance and customer satisfaction.
