ABSTRACT
The article discusses the ways in which every company can use the Six Sigma management tool to better evaluate and manage their business operations through a focus on the customer and relevant data. Though the vast majority of Fortune 500 companies utilize the system, few small and medium-sized companies use it, despite the fact that it would be hugely beneficial for them. The authors examine the common attributes between small firms that use Six Sigma to discover the ways in which it can be maximized by all businesses.
