Dan Blacharski walks us through how Six Sigma encourages innovation within your organization for Innovation Excellence. See underneath for my key observations from his article.
- The Six Sigma approach gets a lot of bad rap for dampening innovation in the workplace due to its metrics, methods, and conformation to quality standards; but this not necessarily the case
- The stress that Six Sigma places on teamwork and collaboration only promote innovation, rather than diminish it
- Also, the very problem-solving approach of Six Sigma is often overlooked for the creative process it is in itself
