Motorola Mobility’s Thomas Goodwin on Six Sigma

Via Scoop.itlean manufacturing

Motorola Mobility is being taken over by Google, and the article is from October, 2011. It includes links to videos. In the first one,  Ashton Kutcher tries to figure out Six Sigma. Based on how youthful he looks, it must at least 15 years old. The others are introductions to “Six Sigma,” that discuss nothing but the obsolete, 80-year-old tools of SPC: histograms, control charts, etc.   The impresssion you get from the article is of Six Sigma as warmed up SPC sprinkled with a smidgeon of Lean. This is not the perception I had of the program.
