One of our Associates, Stuart Swalwell, recently spent some time in Los Angeles with Bill Bellows, Associate Fellow at Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne and Leader of Enterprise Thinking, and is now drafting a paper outlining the differences between the Statius product, Optimisation 3D™, and Six Sigma. In a sentence, Six Sigma is a set of tools and techniques that concentrate on meeting specifications whilst Optimisation 3D™ focuses on the continuous improvement of the organisation as a whole so that customers remain delighted by the products or services they receive. It is hoped the final paper will be published towards the end of the year.

A number of complementary sister papers detailing Statius thinking are also in the final draft stage and, once agreed, they will all appear on a new section of the web site under the banner “Management Matters: Briefing Papers”.
