Six Sigma methods for small organizations

Six Sigma methods for small organizations
Many people have a perception that methods like Six Sigma are mainly for multinational companies. But the actual fact is that the process is very flexible and can be used by organizations of any size. Thus, now at recent times, the methods of Six Sigma are also being used by some of the small organizations also. There may have some complications and confusions in small organizations while using the method but they can be easily confronted and solved. In fact small organizations have the capability of adapting to SixSigma much faster than the large organizations because of their features of fast decision making and effective communication system.

Deployment in the organization
Six Sigma can be utilized for any organization because it has deployments for a vast number of departments. But the small organization may have some problems such as of infrastructure while getting started with the process of Six Sigma. To solve such problems, it is advisable for the small scale business organizations to get started with the pilot program of the method. 

The best feature of the program Six Sigma is that it can be measured. Hence, the main part of the program is about training the employees with various characteristics of the process such as measure, design, improve, control and analyze. Thus, along with the large organizations, even the small companies can take advantage of gaining better results by implementing SixSigma in their operations. Though resources may be a big hindrance in case of the smaller organizations but as said earlier, this can be solved by getting started with the pilot program. Pilot program is the initial level of the program and is very much flexible and focused for small project hits. Later slowly, as the organization develops, it can proceed to the other levels of the program. 

Issues that may occur with small organizations
There are some issues that can come up in case of small organization even after implementing the pilot program of Six Sigma. To stay away from such issues it is very important to select proper project. 6 Sigma offers great results at a small span of time. Thus it is advisable to choose more than one projects and to combine them to make one project. Also the projects have to be such that can be completed with a time period of 3-4 months. The execution of the projects has to be tracked properly since the starting of the implementation. 

Other two important issues that may occur are training and the resources. Training for Six Sigma may take months and for this the employees may have to get absent from their work. But to solve this problem, now there are consultants who offer training to the employees along with their professional work. The organization has to schedule the timing for the employees in such case. The resource problem often gets solved slowly, when the organization starts getting better results after implementing the pilot program of Six Sigma. Later the organization can spread the deployment of the process to various places after having enough resources.

The Pros and Cons of Project Management Certification

There is an upsurge in the market for Certified Project Management professionals and the demand for them seems to be on a constant rise. This situation has in turn created a bit of insecurity for professionals who do not come with a PMP or a PRINCE2 certification that grants them the title of Certified Project Managers. These uncertified yet experienced professionals are unsatisfied with the present market scenario and are of the opinion that biased employers are making uneducated and pointless decisions that in turn is diminishing employment opportunities for these professionals. The credentials of a professional and their capability to bring forward favourable outcomes to projects can only be tested by time and on the completion of a project. Making predetermined assumptions as to only a Certified Project Manager can bring profitable outcomes is somewhat wrong in the eyes of the non Certified Project Managers.


This is a never ending discussion as to whether having a Project Management Certification (PMP Certification) is worth it or not. There are very many thesis made in for and against the topic. To understand the concept better, it is best advised that the Pros and Cons of the Project Management Certification be evaluated.

The Pros of Project Management Certification:
The benefits that a candidate can enjoy on attaining a PM certification, include-

  • One of the basic pros of holding a Project Management Certification is your ability to display your professional attributes, the code of ethics that come with your PMI’s Certification, your capability to efficiently perform the different functions and responsibilities of a project management professional, etc. 
  • A certification in PMP or PRINCE2 helps you establish the proficiency of your knowledge, abilities and your management skills. These certifications from PMI endorse your capabilities and your knowledge in the field of project management and also very genuinely boast of your professional experience in the international market. 
  • The professional certification from PMI is a reflection of an achievement and global employers tend to opt for candidates who are achievers and are front runners in their field of study.
  • As a result of the increasing demand for certified professionals having a certification in PMP or PRINCE 2 will surely lead you to a higher level of income. 
  • Having a certification from PMI allows you to bring about greater beneficial results for the company you are working for. This increasing the all over success rate of the projects handled by the company.

These are only some of the pros of holding a Project Management Certification.

The Cons of Project Management Certification:
Along with the Pros there are also certain Cons that the PM certifications bring with them. These are mostly faced by the hiring companies though. Most companies hire candidates on the basis of their certificate bearing status and without testing their credentials. This can bring upon them grave danger of project failures. It is not necessary that every candidate who holds a certificate is a pro in the field.
Hence it can be said that it is best to test a candidate for credentials along with their desirable certified status, before hiring them finally, for best results.
