Smarter Solutions

I've heard of Six Sigma before, but I really don't know a lot about it. It's one of those business concepts that people like me only really hear about when they work for a company that decides they need to adopt said business concept to get a leg up in sales/marketing/production/whatever.

When I worked at Boeing, I remember going through the training for ISO 9000 certification. We had training sessions and the like. I'm still not sure what exactly it means, but apparently some of the decision makers for the government contracts felt it was important.

So lately I've been hearing about Six Sigma and also the related Lean Six Sigma. Since I don't work for a company that directly does manufacturing anymore, I don't hear as much about these things as I used to. So, I decided to see what I could find out about it, just out of curiosity. There's a company called Smarter Solutions that offers Six Sigma Education, and their website has some good information, if you are interested in finding out more.
