Principle of Determinism
The Principle of Determinism is a core belief running through Six Sigma. All outcomes are determined by the way inputs are transformed – according to some said process.
The cause and effect philosophy of Six Sigma means that you look at a 'process' and see how the process allows for variation. The inputs, process function, and errors within that process all affect the outcome. They cause the outcome to be a particular way – the cause and effect of Six Sigma.
