Structured Problem Solving and Training Techniques to achieve Best Practice Outcomes
Kaizen, Lean and Six Sigma methodologies are proven and considered globally the best way of achieving “World Class” business performance and customer service outcomes in manufacturing and services based organisations.
The greatest challenge for many organisations is the rollout and deployment of the initial program to achieve the required factors of engagement in skills, knowledge transfer and cultural maturity; thus ensuring that the initial deployment rollout does not fail or flounder. Historical evidence shows that if those methodologies are rolled out unstructured a failure rate of 70% plus have occurred during the early years of program deployments.
Graphic 1 shows the benefits of the structured gradual step deployment of these continuous improvement methodologies and the best practice outcomes, helping organisations to evolve and mature.
On the commencement of any new Kaizen Lean Six Sigma project, be it in the undertaking or deployment rollout phase, when reviewing the management control systems deployed by "low level practitioners", we have observed that many projects were commenced without an adequate review of the complexities of the problem required to be resolved. As a result many improvement opportunities are not maximised or overlooked.
This of course results in inefficiencies throughout the life cycle of the project, such as engagement and/or poor application of resources and at best a compromised or missed benefits outcomes. ie a "Green Belt" project that has "high risk" or that may have "complexed" process or customer service streams, ie across many departments or business divisions to be resolved.
Transformation projects of this nature > $500K, need to be commenced by an experienced Black or Master Black Belt as the project facilitator, assisted by Yellow and Green Belt team members.
Once saving opportunities are identified and itemised, they need to be pre-scoped prior to qualifying for project inclusion.
Graphic 2The following methodology approach selection guide will assist you with the direction and selection of projects we have observed on many occasions
Aligned with the above project selection matrix guide, another business critical application issue is ensuring that your team members and that also includes the executive leadership management sponsors that have the appropriate skills to champion change that requires the latest Kaizen Lean Six Sigma and project management skills to control and manage the project to be undertaken.
Graphic 3 The following methodology and accreditation approach is highly recommended prior to launching any organisational wide transformation or deployment programs
The number of team member champions to be trained and to what belt level is dependent on the number of themed projects identified prior and scoped into your new strategic - vision and operational plans, we strongly suggest that a full Lean Six Sigma (LSS) & Voice of the Customer (VOC) base line capability position must be generated prior to commencing any major transformation and project based deployment program, more detailed reading at Kaizen Lean Six Sigma Strategic Vision Best Practice Overview and addressing your customer experience best practice overview @ Voice of the Customer

There are many root causes that contribute to transformation and deployment failures when initially deploying your C.I / T.Q.M / OP Ex launch program, many studies have confirmed deployment failure rates of between 50% to 70% + these are some of the majors key issues
