6 Sigma in the Borusan Group

6 Sigma is a modern business methodology that is applied by the world’s giant companies and aims to continuously increase the productivity, profitability and customer satisfaction in business and production processes.

The system, whose basic principles were developed by Motorola in 1986, has benefited from methodologies such as Quality Control, Total Quality Control and Zero Error, as well as the teaching of pioneers such as Shewhart, Deming, Juran, Ishikawa and Taguchi. The system was first put to use by Motorola, Honeywell and GE.

The Borusan Group has been using this methodology since 2002.

Thanks to the 6 Sigma methodology, which constitutes an important pillar of Borusan’s strategic management model, Borusan’s companies both increase their financial growth and profitability, as well as affecting a change of culture.

The 6 Sigma studies are run by full-time employees, Black Belts specializing in methodology, supervising projects and providing training projects, as well as by Master Green Belts on a half-time basis and Borusan employees at all levels.

As of 2016, 3300 projects have been completed with the participation of a total of 2900 Borusan employees and these projects have provided Borusan with a value of USD 150 million.

What is Lean 6 Sigma?

Lean 6 Sigma is a way of managing a project with defined steps and goals:
Through continuous and decisive leadership support 
Through increasing the quality of process output by locating and removing error sources
Through using a specific human resource infrastructure that is focused on this work in the organization 
Through using quality management and statistical tools


There are basically two types of projects in the 6 Sigma methodology.
