Six Sigma is a business management strategy originally developed by Motorola Inc in 1986 and it is widely used across the industry. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special human resource infrastructure within the organization ("Black Belts", "Green Belts", etc.). Six Sigma Green Belt training provides participants with enhanced problem-solving skills, with an emphasis on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) model. Six Sigma Green Belt certification helps the employee serve as a trained team member within his or her function-specific area of the organization. This focus allows the Green Belt to work on small, carefully defined Six Sigma projects, requiring less than a Black Belt's full-time commitment to Six Sigma throughout the organization.
The Green Belt has two primary tasks: first, to help successfully deploy Six Sigma techniques, and second, to lead small-scale improvement projects within their respective areas. As a support population, Green Belts can do much of the legwork in gathering data and executing experiments in support of a Black Belt project.

What is Six-Sigma?
Six-Sigma is a highly disciplined approach that enables the organizations to focus on creating and delivering nearly-perfect products and services. The underlying idea being that if you can measure how many "defects" you have in a process and you can systematically figure out a way to eliminate them then you get as close to "zero defects" as possible.
Is Six-Sigma all about statistics?
No, it's all about the customer and what it takes to satisfy their needs. Statistical tools are a fundamental part of Six-Sigma and it helps bring about objective knowledge of problems lying in business processes and solutions that solves the problem.
Six-Sigma's aim is to "fix business problems through the aid of statistics".
What is DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control)?
The Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology has five steps:
Define the customer requirements, clarify the problem and set goals.
Measure the current processes and collect relevant data for future comparison.
Analyze to verify root causes and determine the relationship while considering all factors
Improve to generate and apply solutions. Modify existing processes or develop better processes.
Control by monitoring to assure continued high-quality performance

- Executing these interventions through internal resources of the organization or through master consultants from KNOWLEDGEHUT. Where required, KNOWLEDGEHUT would create the requisite capability within the organization on problem solving through Six Sigma tools
- Strong project and program management to ensure the initiative is progressing as planned
