I completed the White Belt course in the span of a few hours. Understanding the principles and the history behind Six Sigma, allowed me to understand its function and it’s uses in connection with other programs I’ve seen. This was an excellent introduction to the Six Sigma process and I will be pursuing more certifications thru the Six Sigma online programs

Originally developed by Bill Smith at Motorola in 1986, the Six Sigma Training program was created using some of the most innovative quality improvement methods from the preceding six decades. The term "Six Sigma" is derived from a field of statistics known as process capability. The term 6 Sigma refers to the ability of manufacturing processes to produce a very high proportion of output within specification. Processes that operate with "six sigma quality" over the short term are assumed to produce long-term defect levels below 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Six Sigma's goal is to improve overall processes to that level of quality or better.
