About 40% of total software cost relates to poor quality and resultant rework. Further, 60% of software projects are regarded "failures" - delayed by six months or more, and many more get cancelled.

Focus of the Six Sigma initiative is to reduce cost by minimizing defects and rework and thus increase the revenue through improved customer satisfaction. Potential users have derived encouragement from the experience of others that, with Six Sigma implementation, and ROI of over 100% in the first year itself is not uncommon.

What is the seminar about? : This free seminar covers the concept of Six Sigma and highlights its practical applicability in the Software and IT industry in addressing issues like

* creeping requirements
* excessive schedule pressure
* high-level of rework for delivered modules
* inadequate configuration management
* reduced profitability per project etc.

In addition, questions regarding coexistence and integration of Six Sigma with other process initiatives or frameworks like CMM(I), ISO 9001-2000, TSP, PSP, IEEE, ITIL etc. will be addressed in the session.
