dc.description.abstract Six Sigma methodology brings a lot of possibilities, how to radical improve process and product quality. Since a decade the pressure started rising throughout the world that SMEs can enhance their capability, improve quality and increase their profitability by using Six Sigma. However, Six sigma used by large organization cannot be adopted for SMEs. There are too many differences between this two company types. In presented paper actual theoretical fundamentals of SS belt roles are analyzed and by a comparative analysis core research questions connecting to differences of SS belt roles deployment in SMEs and large enterprises are answered. Also deployment guidelines for SS belt roles in SMEs are highlighted. en
