How Close to Six Sigma Are You?

Ronald G. Berglund writes that Six Sigma can be a truly effective approach to business management but is simply a new "tool box" filled with old tools. He points out that you may already be equipped with some of those tools and on your way to a functioning Six Sigma program. Berglund presents two tables containing the core competencies needed for a Six Sigma program and the quality tools for a DMAIC approach that can serve as a Six Sigma checklist. He also reviews Section 8 of ISO 9001:2000 to show how the core competencies and quality tools can help create a robust QMS.
