Challenges of the Future: The Rebirth of Small Independent Retail in America


By any measure, retailers are overwhelming small businesses. More than 95 percent of all retailers have only one store. Almost 90 percent have sales less than $2.5 million (USD), and more than 98 percent have fewer than 100 employees.

Will Servigistics Click on More Service Cylinders? - Part 1


The old adage “he who lives by the sword will die by the sword” might have been best witnessed in the life and demise of erstwhile public software company Click Commerce based in Chicago, Illinois (US).

Question: When is Six Sigma not Six Sigma? Answer: When it's the Six Sigma Metric!!©


Six Sigma Quality is a popular approach to process improvement, particularly among technology driven companies such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Kodak and Texas Instruments. Its objective is to reduce output variability through process improvement, and/or to increase customer specification limits through design for producibility. I don't like the Six Sigma metric. As you'll see, it fails to pass many of the empirical tests for "good" metrics. In particular, it's neither simple to understand nor, in most applications, an effective proxy for customer satisfaction. And, its definition is ambiguous and therefore easily gamed because th

arts  borrowed from their martial arts counterparts. They command a rank-and-file made up of teams focusing on the improvement of the organization''s processes.

The Six Sigma Academy, a Motorola spin-off, provides consulting service to many of the leading practitioners of this approach. What I want to focus on here though is the 6s metric itself, not the concept or the approach. Read More
