How to manage your DMAIC projects more effectively
As a Master Black Belt and LSS Deployment Leader for various organizations, I have had an opportunity to work in the amazing field of continuous improvement. So many joyful moments and exciting improvement initiatives. Yet, there has been a number of frustrating ones as well. One of the most frustrating things about managing improvement efforts is the control of the DMAIC methodology and the project documentation management.
How can you establish a robust discipline for your Black Belts to follow the DMAIC methodology you designed? How can you make sure they complete the necessary documentation at each step, each project has a charter, etc? These are some of the many pains I experienced in my continuous improvement career. As you can see, the need for a single, collaborative system has always been paramount.
In this video, I draw a comparison between traditional (typical) systems and tools many continuous improvement practitioners use and the latest generation continuous improvement solution that takes the heavy lifting out of managing DMAIC projects.
