Relationship Between Six Sigma/Quality and Activity Based Management SiteMap

Six Sigma/Quality & Activity Base Management (ABM) Support Each Other

Six Sigma/Quality and ABM are interrelated and supportive of each other.

Although many consultants will state that their technique is superior to the other technique, reality is that these techniques are similar to each other. Each technique is stronger in some areas than the other technique.

If an organization is using one technique successfully, it may want to explore other technique to gain the relative advantage of that techniques.

  • Cause and Effect diagrams
  • Process flow charting
  • Business Process analysis
  • Process Thinking
