Do you know that in the U.S., those with at least one level of Six Sigma training make an average of $17,762/month more than those who had not received Six Sigma training? In Canada a six sigma trained professional makes an average $5,861 more! And a single Master Black Belts make an average of $44,636 more than those without a Master Black Belt! On an average, enterprises achieve 65% of higher project savings by adhering to Six Sigma methodology. Enterprises using Process Improvement Methodology (like lean & six sigma) achieve 40% more ROI than those who did not use it.

Six Sigma is a continuous, controlled and data driven method of eliminating defects in such a way as to go for six standard deviations between the mean and nearest specification limit in any process throughout the life cycle of the product, business or service. To achieve six sigma, the process shouldn’t produce more than 3.4 defects in a million opportunities. We can thus roughly say that six sigma is a mistake free approach of improving the business or service.
