From Six Sigma to Success

From Six Sigma to Success

In the world of manufacturing, Six Sigma is a phrase that professionals hear nearly every day. However, the Six Sigma methodology has applications reaching far beyond its traditional use that can save companies time and money.

Six Sigma 
The Six Sigma methodology is based on the idea of measuring and subsequently reducing defects in a process. In the Six Sigma course at Syracuse University‘s Martin J. Whitman School of Management, participants present process improvement issues that their companies face. From banks to insurance companies, distributors to schools, any organizations that have processes can use Six Sigma to increase efficiency.

Whitman’s Six Sigma course, taught through a series of online training programs and four optional on-site days, offers professionals the chance to earn a “black belt” or “green belt” upon completion. Business leaders in a diverse range of industries have attended the course to develop strategies for process improvement.
