A Lean Six Sigma program is sponsored at high level, and is the means of getting an organisation from current reality to best in class performance.
The best people are trained to be “performance improvement leaders”. Quality improvement and Process Waste reduction projects are selected with hard financial targets and with greater rigour and control to track activity to business goals. Cross-functional team members and others in the organisation are given training to enable them to pinpoint performance gaps and deliver the required improvement targets.
A common perception exists that these types of programs are generally a one-off big bang that deliver moderate results, lack direction and are somewhat complex in nature.
Our experience suggests differently. If properly applied in situations where they are most appropriate with a desired balance of analytical rigour and needed flexibility, enormous benefits can be realised.
We will work with you to design and manage a performance improvement program that aligns with your organization’s goals, delivers results quickly and regularly. Through such tools as pareto analysis, prioritization matix and value stream maps, we identify your improvement opportunities and which projects to pursue. Depending on your needs, we can then lead specific projects, or work alongside your team as we coach them through projects.
If you already have a program in place, then we work with you to evaluate your progress, identify strengths and weaknesses, and uncover opportunities to grow your capabilities.
