The Sigma Rule

By searching “sigma rule” you mean the “six” rule which is based on the observation that in a normally distributed data set, three standard deviations above and below mean (hence six sigma-which is the standard notation for standard deviation) will include 99.996% of data. So if one wants to reduce errors in manufacturing or service quality, one might strive to reach six sigma-which is essentially almost 100% perfection within tolerance. It’s a very high standard. Six Sigma quality systems proliferated over the last 30 years. Very few can actually achieve that level of performance.

Sigma deployment will begin with senior leadership training in the philosophy, principles, and tools they need to prepare their organization for success.

Baseline studies are conducted to determine the starting point and to identify cultural, policy, and procedural obstacles to success.

Process feedback systems. A framework for continuous process improvement is developed, along with a system of indicators for monitoring progress and success. Sigma Rule metrics focus on the organization’s strategic goals, drivers, and key business processes

Sigma projects are conducted by project teams led by Black Belts or by Green Belts with the technical assistance of Black Belts.

The sigma rule which Grooming Urban follow

  • Experiencing it by always keeping one thing in mind we are not the body we are a soul, who is experiencing this world through this body. We also don’t know whether we will be alive tomorrow or not which clarifies only one thing in life that is never looking back.
  • Living in the present and preparing for our dreams as best as we can, without any expectations and fears.
  • Never give an absolute damn of what life throws at us. Examples- broken heart, cheating girlfriend, empty bank balance, a withering storm, high ticket price of a daily commute, and everything amongst those. Just walk it off. Complaining will only waste our time and nothing else.
  • Don’t live for approval and appreciation. Live for yourself, Be happy, Be healthy, Be unique.
