Damning criticism of Six Sigma by US Quality Professional

In an article this week in one of the US’ leading manufacturing journals, Industry Week, David Cochran, Vice President of Operations, QualPro, launches a damning attack on Six Sigma, claiming it is expensive, slow, not hands-on, complicated, disruptive, inflexible, demanding, and not suited for performance breakthroughs.

He makes the point that with the current state of the US$ in international exchanges, US-based global companies are doing very well, and can afford to allow their quality improvement processes to slip.

Well, what do you think?

Best wishes
