I am a Continuous Improvement Professional and a Gulf War-era United States Veteran. I had the privilege of serving from 1988 to 1992 in the United States Marine Corps, where I worked in the supply chain management and physical distribution/logistics fields.

Reflecting back, I would say my continuous improvement days started in my youth on the farm where I would try to be the best farmer I could be, whether that meant finding b...

Setting the Stage

As a first point of business, let’s set the stage for our ensuing discussion with a brief orientation on the technical evolution of Six Sigma.  In this way, we can get down into the boiler room of Six Sigma to better understand its source of power.

To many organizations, Six Sigma is just another means to improve quality that’s often put under the umbrella of continuous improvement. From this viewpoint, Six Sigma can be described as a highly disciplined, data-driven approach for eliminating defects.

In reality, Six Sigma is a lot more than a quality program.  Six Sigma is actually a business improvement process that allows companies to drastically benefit their bottom lin...

The broad use of the words “Six Sigma” today means many things and it has evolved from its beginnings into a Quality Management System. “Six Sigma” Systems have also been combined with “Lean” Systems, based on the Toyota Production System, as well as the “Theory of Constraints”. Each has their thinking approach, followers, advantages, tools and techniques.

The thoughts and ideas that led to Six Sigma and Design for Six Sigma (D...

MindPro Development History

In 1994 Mikel established the Six Sigma Academy (SSA) with Richard Schroeder.  Together they deployed Six Sigma in large corporations such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Ford Motor Company, and Dupont. These were highly successful deployments and spanned through the first three generations of Six Sigma.  The foundation of Lean Six Sigma deployment and training was set in these early years....
