Conclusions and Recommendations
Assessing the needs of the customer is a reliable foundation in achieving customer satisfaction which consequently contributes to extensive growth of the organization. Achievement of these objectives is determined by effectiveness of communication lines between the customers and business managers.
Effective communication will enable the customers to be fully responsive to the products and services they receive from the company. The top managers of the company must also be responsive to the needs of the customers which also contribute in shaping the value and orientation of the company. The contribution of Six Sigma policies also contributes significantly in improving the operations of the company and establishment of new culture that help in defining the reputation of the company. The contribution of Six Sigma principles in the form of improvement of business procedures contributes in enhancing business management leading to defect free products in the organization. This consequently reduces the cost of production in the company that in tern results to the production of high quality products at relatively low cost. The company is therefore in a position to offer affordable prized to the customers and thereby raising their level of satisfaction.

A balance application of Six Sigma principles will earn more of the profits in the company from lower cost of production instead of high volumes of business. Additional information from research on the Six Sigma principles is likely to improve the efficiency of production which will in turn empower the company to be competitive and raise the level of customer satisfaction.
