Six Sigma Global Acceptance and Success Stories:
All leading companies in the world use Six Sigma
Six Sigma has come a long way since its inception in the mid 80’s. In the present day, Six Sigma is one of the most widely applied methodologies for improvement projects globally. Also, the widespread increase in the demand for certified Six Sigma professionals is a testimony to the fact that Six Sigma is here to stay.
Before, 1987, Six Sigma was solely a statistical term. Since then, the Six Sigma crusade, which started at Motorola, has spread to other companies who are continually striving for excellence. Over the last two decades it has evolved from a problem-solving technique to a quality strategy and ultimately into a sophisticated quality philosophy. After GE’s Jack Welch made it a central focus of his business strategy in 1995, looking at the success, all other leading companies started following the trend. And today, Six Sigma is the fastest growing business management system in industry.
* GE and Dow have been using Six Sigma for new product development and customer support to reduce costs, improve performance, and increase profitability.
* Citi bank uses six sigma to reduce variability in cycle times, error rates, costs, “days to pay” of accounts payable, and improve employees’ productivity ratios.
* Accenture uses six sigma to eliminate waste and become faster and much more responsive to its customers, driving revenue growth.
Following are just a handful of organisations who have accepted and adopted 6 Sigma:
- American Express
Some Success stories:
- The well known GE success story – After implementing Six Sigma, GE realised benefits worth 2 Billion Dollars.
- Starting from 2002 Bharti group (Airtel) accepted and applied Six Sigma in all its Businesses. It has since then realized savings worth millions of dollars. Six Sigma is an Integral part of its DNA with a dedicated team at each of its circles. Airtel’s basic services businesses yielded 250% return on Investment in the first year of implementation itself. There are more than 150 Black Belts working in the entire group.
- Qualtec’s Services saved over 20 Million Dollars over 2 years after adopting Six Sigma.
- Fortune 50 saved over 500 Million Dollars from 500 Six Sigma projects.
The figure below shows that Six Sigma is not only adopted by manufacturing companies but increasingly being applied outside of the traditional manufacturing industry because of its inherent benefits. Today’s competitive environment leaves no room for error. Six Sigma plays a huge role in doing so irrespective of the industry.
