Quality initiatives, such as Six Sigma and Lean, are only as good as the results they produce. Quality projects are not like reengineering - they focus on incremental improvement not monumental breakthrough. However, these increments can grow to be quite large! According to the research study by benchmarking leader Best Practices, LLC, companies' savings from their largest-impact quality project for the supply chain ranged from $10,000 to $50 million, with an average savings of $5 million.
