The two-day international conference on Six Sigma, the first in its genre, opened in Dubai. Participants include leading exponents of Six Sigma process implementation belonging to business spheres such as TQM, Business Management, and CRM. The meet is being hosted by the e-TQM College Advisory Board, which has initiated many steps to increase awareness of TQM practices.
The venue is itself significant, because several business enterprises in the region are growing into multinational proportions, and Six Sigma quality assurance can help improve their business processes and reduce defects.
Six Sigma has come a long way since its implementation by Motorola in 1986, and global leaders—including Ford, Microsoft, Caterpillar, Raytheon, Siemens, Merrill Lynch and 3M—have benefited from the positive impact of Six Sigma principles.

This is good news! From my research, too, so far, companies who are into Six Sigma are American companies. Although there's also a growing number of Six Sigma companies in Europe and Asia. Dubai is growing economically quite well. I believe their companies as well as those in the region will benefit a lot from Six Sigma, too. This will also be good news for the customers out there.

I am not sure how many companies in Middle East are seriously pursuing Six Sigma. Recently I attended a seminar conducted by Encreate Consulting. A few organizations who are contemplating Six Sigma made presentations. Most of them were concerned that their stakeholders expect quick results and certification. Sumant Misra, Senior Partner of Encreate commented that companies need to adopt Six Sigma as a business excellence philosophy to derive maximum benefits. Organizations interested in certification are better off with something like ISO.
