What is most important about this management strategy is that it is data-driven.  It is a strategy that does not rely on perceptions but rather upon statistics.

This is the biggest difference between Six Sigma and previous management strategies.  Six Sigma depends on looking very carefully at data on a firm's processes.  Management must examine the data and use it properly so that their actions are based on scientific fact rather than on the opinions of individual people.

The goal of 6 sigma is to improve any kind of process that acts on data.

This methodology is organized in 5 phases: DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control). Any of these phases are based on data collected. These data are measurable and verifiable, so that the predictions concerning the process to be accurate, avoiding as much as possible drastic variations.

6 sigma is a statistical tool. therefore this finds use in all industries that are keen in reducing and eliminating defects thus improving quality in their operations
