Resumo

Os objetivos deste trabalho são identificar o grau de difusão, os principais aspectos da implantação e os resultados obtidos com a adoção do programa Seis Sigma em empresas brasileiras de grande porte. A abordagem metodológica adotada foi um levantamento do tipo survey, cujas informações foram coletadas através de um questionário estruturado preenchido por 198 profissionais da área de qualidade de diferentes empresas de grande porte. Os resultados sugerem que mesmo em empresas de grande porte a difusão do Seis Sigma ainda não é expressiva (23,5%). As empresas que implementaram este programa já possuíam em sua maioria outros programas de qualidade adotados e relataram ter obtido ganhos financeiros superiores ao montante investido na implementação do Seis Sigma, bem com ganhos de qualidade e de produtividade. Além disso, as empresas relataram existir sinergia entre a implementação do Seis Sigma e de outras abordagens de gestão da qualidade.
