As the competition has increased, there was a sudden need to emphasise on time-cycle improvement in businesses and reduce manufacturing defects to a minimum level. The necessity to retain clients and sustain business products and services was also an emerging issue.

With the efforts of Motorola in 1986, the Six Sigma technique was developed to reduce the defects to a minimum level of 3.4 per million. The defects are found first and then focuses on reducing all the errors in a short span of time along with improved variability in manufacturing and business processes. Pentagon Training will help delegates to get out of these pre-defined paths and achieve Six Sigma levels which range from white to black belt.
