Pick a business opportunity in your organization and explain how the D, M, A, D, V&V would apply?
It is known that six sigma steps is an effective improvement program which can be used in the organization to reduce the amount of defects and possible errors. The defects lead to customer dissatisfaction. Sigma can help to avoid defects. The higher level of sigma means the lower level of defects (Truscott 38). It can be applied to any business opportunity, such as customer services or HR management, finances or order fulfillment, etc. An advertising business opportunity is one of opportunities to which six sigma model can be successfully applied.

M means measure the major the product’s capabilities and risks. In this stage, the needs of the customers should be collected and analyzed in a proper way.
A means analyze the alternatives in order to select the best design. In this case, it is possible to find some errors.

This model helps to define, measure, analyze the needs of the customers in order to improve the quality of work.
