  25. Q. 140 There have been different ways to look at Six Sigma. Six Sigma has evolved a lot in the last 32 years. It all started with a metric. Six Sigma Metric - Sigma level and Sigma shift (Z scores and Z shift). Lean Six Sigma Methodologies -DMAIC, DMADV, IDOV, DFSS, TLC etc. Lean Six Sigma Management Systems -Competence building, Curricula, Certification, Projects, Business cases, Business value generation, Strategic linkages, MBB becoming a requirement for leadership roles etc. Lean Six Sigma Philosophy -Zero defect thinking, Preventive approaches, Process thinking, Design for Six Sigma, Robust Design, Quality by Design, Predictive Analytics, Prescriptive Analytics, Zero waste thinking etc. We have been recommending the use of the above in the order of increasing importance. We emphasize that the performance assessment with Z score is not a priority, and that Six Sigma has evolved a lot in each of the 3 areas - Methodologies (they got integrated with others), Management Systems (People have various competencies to learn), and Philosophy (Six Sigma works wonderfully today with Analytics and RPA). You will still see some individuals talking about Six Sigma from the short-sighted metric viewpoint of 1987. The Question is - Do you agree that just focusing on the Sigma Level metric is the wrong way of looking at "Lean Six Sigma" which is highly successful as a Methodology, Management System and a Philosophy?
