iSixSigma Honors Winners of Most Successful Lean Six Sigma Programs and Largest-Breakthrough Improvement Projects

Bainbridge Island, Washington (Jan. 20, 2009) – iSixSigma, the leading provider of content for the Six Sigma community through its websites, iSixSigma Magazine and live events, honored the winners and finalists of outstanding Six Sigma programs and projects at the iSixSigma Live! Summit in Miami last week.

iSixSigma.com and iSixSigma Magazine sponsored the competition, which received more than 50 nominations from around the world. A team of certified Six Sigma Belts used a systematic and structured process to evaluate the entries in three categories -- Most Successful Lean Six Sigma Start-up Program, Most Successful Re-energized Lean Six Sigma Program and Largest-Breakthrough Improvement Projects.

"All of the finalists exhibited ‘breakthrough’ improvements based on several specific criteria," said Jeannine Hall, director of events for iSixSigma.

To qualify for the competition, programs must have had a minimum return on investment (ROI) of 5x; projects must have delivered a 90 percent reduction in defects, a minimum $250,000 and 5x or more ROI, and a minimum 2-sigma increase in process sigma level.

"Most entries achieved far greater results,” said Michael Cyger, founder of iSixSigma. "In keeping with the summit’s theme, 'Back to Breakthrough,' these awards highlight those programs and projects that go beyond the good. iSixSigma is recognizing truly the best."
