The success of Six Sigma deployment in an organization largely depends on the success of individual Six Sigma projects. Organizational stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, and employees, have a strong influence on the implementation of Six Sigma projects. In turn, these projects impact the organizational stakeholders by throwing many opportunities and challenges before them and requiring them to adapt to changes caused by improvements. Benchmarking is used in Six Sigma projects to set improvement goals against world-class and competitive reference points. Benchmarking may also be used at later stages in Six Sigma DMAIC while evaluating existing operations and incorporating best practices to maximize the success of improvement efforts. This course helps analyze key stakeholders and explore the impact Six Sigma projects can have on them. The course also discusses the concept of benchmarking, various benchmarking types, and how benchmarking is used in Six Sigma. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
