Abbott Associates


Your Resource For Call Center Excellence

An effective operation must be built on a foundation of science and principles. With this foundation there are three knowledge areas: design, metrics, and management. The key to an effective operation is the minimization of variability or Sigma. Designing and managing to reduce variability is called a Six Sigma Program.

The methods for building, designing, and managing an effective call center are like the laws of physics—they are incontrovertible axioms. Though Abbott Associates did not invent science, we did pioneer the application of science to a field that all too often relies solely on “soft skills.”

Many companies are attempting to organize and run their business like it was 10 years ago or 20 or even 30 ago. New and more effective tools are required to keep up. These tools apply to all operations and must be based on good solid principles and science that form a solid foundation.
