Six Sigma uses statistical methods to promote the quality by reducing variability in business processes, from manufacturing to engineering and buying.
Six Sigma achieves its goal by using two Six Sigma Methods: DMAIC and DMADV.
Six Sigma DMAIC
In SKIL the Six Sigma DMAIC way is typically used to enhance an existing process.
Prohibit and correct variations before they result in errors
Six Sigma DMADV
Designing new procedures in SKIL, the Six Sigma DMADV is used.
The DMADV phrase stands for:
Define design standards that adjusts with the product or process aims
Measure and identify aspects of the product or process that are demanding to quality
Analyze the data, and analyze possible sources of errors
Design changes that will eradicate the source of bugs or errors
Verify that the design will reach the requirements
Main Key for Six Sigma Principles
Six Sigma successes are mainly based on these key principles:
Targets on customer requirements
Using comprehensive measurement and statistical analysis to explain how work gets done and to identify the root cause of issues (variations)
Being proactive in eradicating variation and continually enhancing the process
Associating people in Six Sigma cross-functional teams
Being thorough and being extensible
Six Sigma is about enhancing quality.
The first step in that process is explaining what “quality” means, from the aspects of the people whose assessments matter most: the customers
After analyzing root causes, make changes to the process that will eradicate variation, and thus eliminate errors from the process.
We transform the organizations by creating new ways of working like setting up systems to drive continuous improvement and by engaging employees to meet the customer needs more effectively.
SKIL believes that lean is much more than just a “toolkit” or a methodology for removing the waste.
A true lean management enterprise like SKIL feels like a very unique place to work:
Employees here at all levels understand the organization’s vision and translate it into actions every day, with a common motive toward common goals across the entire enterprise.
We have designed a transformation that makes sense for each organisation, based on the proven methods for attaining the right balance between deep and fast.
Our impact also comes from building the capabilities of our employees to understand their customers, measure their performance, and fix problems that arise.
We have also developed unique solutions to teach the capabilities required to sustain operational excellence:
Our tools also allows managers to track the progress on the routines and activities they are asked to perform in a lean way of working to receive upward feedback and the senior manager coaching on how they are doing.

Ok, you as Organization Head decided to go for improvement projects.Is it identifying improvement opportunities, influencing stakeholders, subordinates to accept, getting the right resources to execute the project, expected ROI?What we have consistently seen in our work is the foremost challenges organizations face when they want to go with Lean & Six-Sigma is in changing behavior of their employees to accept new ways of working.It requires the significant change in practices of employees who follow and has to drive from the top leadership.It is not until we find some customer starts reporting issues that we (have to) consider alternatives on how to add more quality checks, an additional process for reviews etc.With repetition and a stable context, habits can develop.
