Defining Six Sigma:
In the world of business, Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) has long been a pivotal metric for assessing a company's performance. It's an indicator of how well a business is meeting its customers' needs. However, what happens when CSAT results fluctuate on a daily basis? One day, you might receive a stellar 4.8 out of 5, while the next day, it drops to 2.6, only to bounce back to 4.9 the day after. What's causing these variations, and how can we pinpoint the root causes of these fluctuations? Is the true measure of customer satisfaction really the average of 30 days' worth of CSAT data?
In this series of articles, we delve into how Verso leverages Six Sigma methodologies to achieve robust CSAT scores and enhance other performance metrics.
But what exactly is Six Sigma?
Six Sigma is a comprehensive approach that places a laser focus on meeting customer needs. It is a methodology that thrives on continuous improvement and data-driven decision-making. Beyond that, it is a daily practice for achieving operational excellence, forging processes that consistently perform at a high level, and, perhaps most importantly, it's a management technique.
Experts in the field have defined Six Sigma in two significant ways:
Sigma as a Measure: The term "Sigma" is utilized to denote the distribution or spread of the mean within any process.
Sigma Capability: For a process, sigma capability is a crucial metric. It offers insights into how well that process is performing. The higher the sigma capability, the better the process's performance. Sigma capability measures a process's ability to produce outputs that are entirely free from defects. A defect, in this context, is anything that might result in customer dissatisfaction.
