Abstract [en]

Purpose – Reviews the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoints practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings – Assessing suitability for big step in learning to improve. Any organization which decides to implement a six sigma system to improve business leadership and performance should not underestimate the enormity of the initial step and lasting commitment it is about to make. A little like going into marriage, perhaps – it is going to be wonderful if it succeeds but the people involved have to be sure they are ready to take the step. It is likely that attitudes and behaviors will have to change and, like marriage, six sigma can be costly so it is not advisable to take a half-hearted approach at the beginning.

Practical implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to digest format
