Sigma is a business improvement methodology that is used today
in leading corporations around the world. There are small
variations in the application across companies. However, the
approach is basically the same. Six Sigma experts (Black Belts)
assemble project teams populated with subject matter experts
around a business area or issue. The Black Belt then guides
the team through the Six Sigma methodology, commonly referred
to via acronyms such as DMAIC, DFSS or DMADV to uncover the
root cause. Once the root cause has been identified and confirmed
statistically, the Black Belt again guides the team through
identifying, selecting and implementing possible improvements.

which enhances company culture. Third, after improvements
are implemented, the methodology ensures that the process
is monitored and the improvement is sustained.
