Six Sigma is evolving. Born in the manufacturing bays of Motorola, this statistical quality improvement technique worked wonders at the operational level, cutting costs and reducing business cycle times. But, for top companies, the new strategic Six Sigma is proving to be just as indispensable. Whether CEOs use it to drive revenue growth or systematic, sustainable culture change, the potential of Six Sigma has profound implications for leadership teams.

Authors Dick Smith and Jerry Blakeslee guide you through the process of Strategic Six Sigma implementation. Along the way, you’ll gain a better understanding of the cultural requirements for successful transformation.

The introduction of strategic Six Sigma principles and work practices requires rigorous training beyond the statistical and analytical principles. Smith and Blakeslee break down the introduction into seven modules:

* Executive awareness
* Champion simulation
* Alignment of Six Sigma implementation to business strategies
* Infrastructure development
* Introduction to business process management
* Voice of the market and customer
* Selection and development.

Yet, throughout the training runs a constant thread: Leaders can’t stop communicating the urgency of change.
