I recently came across this article written about the Six Sigma program at Textron. In the article Bob Zimering, a Textron Master Black Belt, discusses Six Sigma at Textron and responds to some of its critics. When discussing the wise guys over at Qualpro who bashed Six Sigma claiming a company’s stock will plummet once they deploy Six Sigma the article states:
“Textron’s stock price, incidentally, has outpaced the S&P 500 by some 140 percent since introducing Six Sigma, but apparently Textron was not included on Qualpro’s list of ‘large’ companies.”
Hey Qualpro, how you like them apples? Way to go Textron. Keep up the great work!
