From the Paper:

"As mentioned in earlier research this business reengineering process facilitated through the enabling technology of Six Sigma and the core technology platforms of ERP have been instrumental in GE's long-term efficiency across many vastly different lines of business. GE's approach, however, is to implement Six Sigma first at the people level and then work it into its production processes: "GE usually encourages its employees to do things in a different way, requiring all employees to attend a 'Six Sigma' training course and use the principles and methods to improve the quality of their daily work" (Chen, 2005, para.13). Once deployed, the technology applications of an ERP platform and the enabling technology of Six Sigma imparts to GE employees revolutionizes the way work is performed at the most detailed level allowing GE to achieve quantifiable and substantial results reflected by gains in efficiency, profitability, and motivational force across the organization."
