Survey Shows Six Sigma Delivers Profits

While the value of Six Sigma implementation is already widely known, the monetary benefits for a single company to train an individual are rarely quantified.  A recently released survey entitled The Customer Dashboard, however, attempts to rectify this gap.  It indicates that 86% of Six Sigma Black Belts contributed $500,000 to annual performance goals, while almost one in three (32%) contribute $5 million.  The survey also touts the benefits of Six Sigma on an anecdotal basis, allowing the effects of the program to be seen within a single company.  PR Newswire Reports:
