    Without a WIFM, there is no urge for anyone to make an effort towards an improvement or to make any changes. It is, hence, appropriate for the GB/BB and the cross functional teams to ask for their WIFMs. It may vary from an individual to the next (monetary, learning, advancement, scorecard goals and hence business goals etc) - as it should because it speaks to everyone as "ME". The chosen best answer is that of R Rajesh for making an attempt to outline the WIFM from everyone's perspective while keeping in mind the note above.

    Robotic Process Automation

    RPA is rule based, follows a coded logic and can do repetitive tasks. Whereas AI is a step beyond RPA; and can mimic human behaviors such as cognition and reasoning and take complex decisions. The chosen best answer is for Ehtesham because of differences shown in lucid tabular format alongwith examples for both. The answer also has just the right detail that was asked for without any extra dimensions. R Rajesh's answer cites additional examples.

    Changeover Time

    Khalandar's answer provides the detailed steps followed for SMED. It is the chosen best answer. Chella's answer provides multiple examples from various industries and adds to the clarity on the topic. Chella's answer also provides application orientation for the concept in the service industry.

    Internet of Things

    R Rajesh maintains the winning streak for the best answer. He covers all aspects of IoT along with the examples. Anju Patra has provided a very good definition.  Vastupal's answer is a must read for additional examples.

    Important VS Urgent

    R Rajesh's answer is the chosen best answer. It describes how can we choose between the various urgent and important tasks that we may have on our to-do list everyday. Rightly said, Urgent tasks are those which demand immediate attention and which must be done as of yesterday. These are also the tasks that usually emerge when we are on the "reactive mode". However, important tasks are the ones which are focused towards long term goals and are hence "proactive or responsive mode" tasks. Vastupal's answer also provides additional examples and clear definition and is a good read.

    Operational Definition

    The best answer to the question is that of R Rajesh. Rajesh has also provided three examples and they are all well scripted. Writing an Operational Definition may seem to be simple but it becomes very complex while dealing with abstracts. Example - emotional stability of a child can manifest itself in many ways. It would need to be broken down into multiple elements and defined. But again, that is the very purpose of writing an Operational Definition for a CTQ.

    Constraint and Bottleneck

    R Rajesh's answer is the best answer due to the multiple examples outlined from different realms. Do read through Vastupal's answer for additional examples and Ajay's answer for a good visual depiction.

    R Rajesh continues his winning streak with the best answer again - very elaborately detailed and covers all aspects. Raghuram's answer brings out an important point about one solution not fitting all - it is important to identify different groups and their mental make up before deciding how to provide support mechanism for mental safety. Thank you all for contributing!

    Web Analytics

    R Rajesh does it again! The sheer detail makes it impossible to choose another answer as the best answer. I must say though, "every answer" today has some nugget of information not to be missed. So, do read them all! Happy Learning!

    Inference from Cp and Cpk

    R Rajesh has provided clear definitions, examples and inference from the given date explaining the concept of Cp and Cpk in a complete manner. Vastupal's answer is a close second. It is good to see the competition increasing everyday.

    Balanced Scorecard

    The chosen best answer is that of R Rajesh as he has defined the terms lagging and leading indicators and quoted multiple examples for each segment. The spotlight example in Vastupal's answer is a great way of explaining what the difference in both could mean. Raghuram's answer is also a must read.

    Lessons Learned

    R Rajesh's answer is the chosen best answer as he has very clearly outlined the benefits, challenges and how to overcome the challenges. The detail provided in the answer supersedes all other answers. Sitaram's answer mentions some additional ways to overcome this challenge and is a must read!

    Lean Six Sigma

    R Rajesh's answer is the chosen best answer because of the clear advantages and disadvantages listed along with an example. Rajesh Chakrabarty's answer is also a must read - he mentions some different points which provide a holistic understanding, too.

    Quoting Shingo, these goals are set in order of priority. Some experts argue that this does not include "safety" while others argue that safety is the basic assumption and hence, not included. Some experts also say that the priority needs to be chosen depending on the situation. The chosen best answer is that of Anirud Sinha as he outlines the explanation for the priority and also mentions what would happen if the priority were changed. The thought process is that easier and better will automatically lead to faster and cheaper.
