Six Sigma literature review

The latest issue of International Journal of Six Sigma and Competitive Advantage [vol. 2 no.2] has a literature review by P. Nonthaleerak and L.C. Hendry from Lancaster University. The paper reviews more than 200 Six Sigma papers, classifying them according to their research content and the research methodology employed. A comprehensive list of future research areas is given. Key examples are further development of a scientific foundation for the methodology; integrating Six Sigma with other methodologies such as adding Lean Tools; considering implementation issues in areas other than North America and Europe and furthering the debate on how to adapt the approach for use in a service context.

Very good post, I was really searching for this topic, as I wanted this topic to understand completely and it is also very rare in internet, that is why it was very difficult to understand.

Thank you for sharing this.
