Six Sigma is an improvement methodology which uses the following phases to make changes to any process:

  • Defining
  • Measuring
  • Analyzing
  • Improving
  • Controlling

This is also referred to as the DMAIC method. Using the DMAIC method provides the tools to measure the capability of any process to perform defect-free work with a failure rate of 3.4 parts per million or 99.9997%.

This methodology uses proven strategies and tools to improve virtually any process. The goal is improved process performance and increased customer satisfaction through variability and defect reduction, resulting in consistently producing high quality services, products or processes.

A Six Sigma certification is designed to prove your proficiency in understanding the fundamentals of this process-improvement technique. Certification includes all learning material.

In the world of business, staying ahead of the norm means always learning and improving your knowledge and skills. This certification is an important benchmark that employers around the world use to gauge the quality of a candidate. Most businesses are looking for the very best talent, striving to secure the best positions and job security. Make sure that your work rises to the top and that your organization benefits from your knowledge and expanded skills by becoming a Six Sigma practitioner.
