  • Good start,

    Motorola introduced the six sigma and now all the major fields following these six categories to improve their knowledge.

    Compared to the try-fail method, in which practitioners may generate thousands of ideas before finding a really useful concept for developing a new product or service, Six Sigma’s systematic approach may be seen as a threat to creativity.

    Thanks,
