Getting more for less

Tuesday February 3, 2015 at 9:40am

Here at the Six Sigma Group our experts deliver a lot of Lean Six Sigma training and are often asked the difficult question of what the three things are that businesses should do more of.    

We’d like to share with you the reply we give:  

  1. Perform a measurement systems analysis on your key performance indicators (KPI) – this means you can trust the numbers you run the business by.  Just because you get a report from your computer system doesn’t mean it is always right!
  2. Chart the ‘trusted’ KPI on a control chart or run chart.  This tells you how to react to the fluctuations in your business and lets you know how you are doing.
  3. Use hypothesis tests to find sources of variation.  If your KPI is not where you want it to be then you know where to improve.
  4. Oh yes and don’t forget your change leadership skills along way!   

We know that’s four things, but with Lean Six Sigma you always get more for less!
