  5. Q. 140 There have been different ways to look at Six Sigma. Six Sigma has evolved a lot in the last 32 years. It all started with a metric. Six Sigma Metric - Sigma level and Sigma shift (Z scores and Z shift). Lean Six Sigma Methodologies -DMAIC, DMADV, IDOV, DFSS, TLC etc. Lean Six Sigma Management Systems -Competence building, Curricula, Certification, Projects, Business cases, Business value generation, Strategic linkages, MBB becoming a requirement for leadership roles etc. Lean Six Sigma Philosophy -Zero defect thinking, Preventive approaches, Process thinking, Design for Six Sigma, Robust Design, Quality by Design, Predictive Analytics, Prescriptive Analytics, Zero waste thinking etc. We have been recommending the use of the above in the order of increasing importance. We emphasize that the performance assessment with Z score is not a priority, and that Six Sigma has evolved a lot in each of the 3 areas - Methodologies (they got integrated with others), Management Systems (People have various competencies to learn), and Philosophy (Six Sigma works wonderfully today with Analytics and RPA). You will still see some individuals talking about Six Sigma from the short-sighted metric viewpoint of 1987. The Question is - Do you agree that just focusing on the Sigma Level metric is the wrong way of looking at "Lean Six Sigma" which is highly successful as a Methodology, Management System and a Philosophy?

  23. Hello, Need your advice in below concern.. this concern belongs to Service Industry (BPO). I am doing a lean project, with the support from ops stakeholders we have identified few NVA's from micro level process map after brainsorming we found that these steps are not adding any value to customer nor to the operations. However, we have removed those steps and rearranged the steps in proper order keeping in mind that the flow should functions effectively. 1) In the above case does 5S applicable to this situation? because I tried applying... 2) Is it mandatory to apply all the 5S in the lean or we can use any of the "S" as per the situation? Please advice.... Regards, Rajiv Nair Mumbai
  24. Hello All, I need to understand more..... how do we implement or bring the culture of six sigma if we don’t get support from the operation (especially service sector) due to their urgent deliverables? So being process excellence expert.... there are few approaches I have seen other organizations do.... and I believe it should work.... they are: 1) Visual Management - Presenting some good achieves which we got in the former lean six sigma project implementation to the Ops team. 2) Training - Co-operate with the project team, introduce lean six sigma concepts and lean thinking to the team. Push them to continuous improvement. Is there any other approaches we can use....apart from the above-mentioned lines....? Regards, Rajiv Nair
