Project Management as an Aid to Six Sigma

K P Rao

Abstract: Over the years, companies have evolved various quality checks to minimise defects in productivity. There have been many good and not so good quality techniques, however one technique, which has stood out, is the Six Sigma approach. This approach has enjoyed tremendous corporate attention, the kind, which no other approach can quite claim for itself. Six Sigma, despite of far flung success and wide spread applications, has some limitations like any contemporary new improvement methodology, both in Theory and Practice as well as tools and methods available to achieve the Six Sigma performance. One short coming is that results and paybacks take too long and hampers the cash flow. One subject which can help eliminating some such weaknesses is Project Management. This paper examines Project Management with Six Sigma in brief, attempts an integration of both the methodologies and discusses what Six Sigma can learn from Project Management to make itself a stronger methodology and suggests a strengthened DMAIC checklist studded with Project Management tools.
