Key Ingredients for Six Sigma Recipe

The Six Sigma way (An Implementation Guide by Pande) introduced six critical ingredients which one need to blend within the organization to get good six sigma recipe :)

1. Genuine Focus on the customer
2. Data and specially fact driven management
3. Process focus , management & improvement
4. Proactive Management
5. Boundaryless collaboration
6. Most Importantly -- Drive for Perfection and Tolerate Failure

Crust of Six Sigma :

As a whole Six Sigma crust is composed of few key molecules:

* Critical to Quality (CTQ): Attributes most important to the customer (you will lot about CTQ in six sigma )
* Defect: Failing to deliver what the customer wants
* Process Capability: What your process can deliver
* Variation: What the customer sees and feels
* Stable Operations: Ensuring consistent, predictable processes to improve what the customer sees and feels
* Design for Six Sigma: Designing to meet customer needs and process capability

With this basic uphold I think it's time to step in some fundas of six sigma....
