Clearly, training is an essential part of a Six Sigma deployment. Several aspects of the training plan must be considered. For example: What are the training objectives? Who will get trained and in what order? Will everyone receive the same training? If not, what are the criteria for who receives each level or type of training? How will the training be structured and what areas will receive the most attention? What will be the duration of training? What methods, case studies, format, training aids will be used during the training session? Who will conduct the training – internally trained personnel or consultants? What are the selection criteria for choosing instructors?
These are just a few questions that should be taken into account when evaluating the training plan. There are numerous ways to conduct training depending on the objectives or needs of the business and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. However, answering these questions up front and identifying potential issues before training begins will factor into the success of the implementation.
After Six Sigma is initiated and personnel are trained, numerous ideas for projects may be generated. The number of projects launched is far less important than their impact to the bottom line. A handful of successful, completed projects outweigh a multitude of never-ending works in progress.
Maximizing involvement on Green Belt and Black Belt projects may initially help facilitate the culture change within the company if two common pitfalls can be avoided.
Even before launching Six Sigma, it is important to assess how projects are selected. Projects should be directly tied into the key business indicators and metrics. “Feel good projects” (those that may be highly visible but with no positive financial outcome) will ultimately erode support for Six Sigma. Management should be able to agree on the importance of each project, regardless of whether it truly grasp the concepts and tools of Six Sigma. There are more questions to answer relative to project selection: Does management select and staff projects or do the Black Belts identify areas of opportunity and petition for support? What are the selection criteria for projects? What is the process to obtain project sponsorship? Ensuring that the organization feels the impact of projects and keeping management engaged are essential to creating a lasting quality program.
Simply kicking off a Six Sigma program does not guarantee results. However, a company can increase its chances for success by objectively evaluating whether the necessary factors for success currently exist in the organization. Then, the company can start spending time preparing a well-thought-out deployment plan.
