A council in California in the US has announced it is to use Six Sigma methodology in a bid to make its processes more efficient.
Tulare City Council is set to embrace the ideology in a bid to deliver services to local people more effectively, reports the Visalia Times Delta.
City manager Don Dorman introduced the city to the benefits of Six Sigma and stated he has the support of Wayne Ross, the Tulare mayor.
"The idea is going to save money and make us more efficient. The real trick is saving more than we're spending. This may well be the way it is with all city managers," he said.
It is hoped the introduction of Six Sigma at the local authority is going to help to bring it into a better financial situation.
According to a recent report by the Daily Journal, Six Sigma has been used by Eli Lilly in a bid to improve efficiency at the organisation.
