Pioneer in Six Sigma Training
Thomas Pyzdek is a pioneer when it comes to Six Sigma training. According to him, Six Sigma can not be compared to traditional Quality Management by any means and it would be a mistake to think so. Six Sigma takes quality control to a whole new level, and in all its essence it helps an organization improve quality, make more money by helping it produce more products, and better service, faster and cheaper. Six Sigma focuses on improving customer loyalty, reducing errors, improving cycle times, and reducing costs by eliminating non-value added activities.
