Making Customers Feel Six Sigma Quality
Globalization and instant access to information, products and services have changed the way our customers conduct business — old business models no longer work. Today’s competitive environment leaves no room for error. We must delight our customers and relentlessly look for new ways to exceed their expectations. This is why Six Sigma Quality has become a part of our culture.

What is Six Sigma?
First, what it is not. It is not a secret society, a slogan or a cliche. Six Sigma is a highly disciplined process that helps us focus on developing and delivering near-perfect products and services. Why ”Sigma“? The word is a statistical term that measures how far a given process deviates from perfection. The central idea behind Six Sigma is that if you can measure how many “defects” you have in a process, you can systematically figure out how to eliminate them and get as close to “zero defects” as possible. Six Sigma has changed the DNA of GE — it is now the way we work — in everything we do and in every product we design.

GE’s Evolution Towards Quality
GE began moving towards a focus on quality in the late ‘80s. Work-Out, the start of our journey, opened our culture to ideas from everyone, everywhere, decimated the bureaucracy and made boundaryless behavior a reflexive, natural part of our culture, thereby creating the learning environment that led to Six Sigma. Now, Six Sigma, in turn, is embedding quality thinking — process thinking — across every level and in every operation of our Company around the globe.
Work-Out in the 1980s defined how we behave. Today, Six Sigma is defining how we work and has set the stage for making our customers feel Six Sigma.
