Pros Of Using Six Sigma
• Improve customer service (or in the case of NGOs - beneficiaries). Through data analysis, Six Sigma enables an organization to better understand customer needs and avoid mistakes. In turn, this leads to improvements in such aspects of the organization’s activities as waiting time or creating a product or service that more closely meets the needs of end-users.
• Reduced production cycle time: An approach based on data analysis allows to identify and eliminate inefficiencies in the production process, due to which it is possible to significantly reduce the time it takes to create a product or service for beneficiaries.
• More focused strategy: Using Six Sigma helps simplify many of the organization’s internal processes, which in turn, increases the focus and effectiveness of its activities.
• Improved time management: Six Sigma helps to improve not only the effectiveness of the organization as a whole, but also individual employees through more optimal management of their time.
• Staff development: The the methodology also helps all employees to better understand their role in the organization, goals and objectives and how to implement them.
• Cost reduction: All of the preceding paragraphs lead to lower costs and higher profits, especially in the long run.
Cons Of Using Six Sigma
1. More and more organizations began to train future owners of the Black Belts. As a result, critics say certification quality has fallen. Black belts come with less knowledge.
2. Fortune magazine claimed that almost all of the 58 large companies that claimed Six Sigma loyalty then dropped out of the S&P 500. Six Sigma methodology, business media reporters insist, doesn't help create breakthrough products and technologies.
3. This may be due to another drawback attributed to Six Sigma - the restriction of creative freedom. According to this opinion, constant “measurements” and statistical analysis do not allow the project team to engage in brainstorming and come up with an unexpected idea. The methodology has a strict algorithm and pursues primarily commercial goals, not innovative ones.
4. The rigor of Six Sigma on statistics is also a matter of criticism. Theoretical debate rages around some tools that may not fully take risks into account.
