The purpose of this quantitative research study presents the correlations between education, years of experience, and Six Sigma experience versus an individual’s compensation because of training and participating in the Six Sigma Methodology with regards to organizational management theory and leadership. The literature review revealed the historic foundations of Total Quality Management, Six Sigma and Lean aspects of participating in Six Sigma. The participant population consisted of Green Belts, Black Belts, Master Black Belts and Champions from several different industries within the United States and abroad. The participant data were collected through a comprehensive questionnaire with the following categories: (a) demographics; (b) Six Sigma training; (c) industry experience; (d) Six Sigma project completion; (e) compensation; (f) Lean Six Sigma tools frequency of use. The Spearman’s rho results of the study indicated that Six Sigma training and participation is statistically significant and an important benefit to participants as compared to years of experience and education. An individual trained in the Six Sigma Methodology earns more to significantly more over the course of their career after participating and practicing Six Sigma. The study provides leadership with an understanding of the expected Six Sigma participant salaries and bonus percentage after training and successfully practicing the Six Sigma Methodology, as well as a brief discourse and recommendations on Six Sigma implementation within matrix organizations through a transformational leadership style.
