As six sigma continues to burn through it’s lifecycle, there is more and more pressure to find and execute meaningful projects that yield great business results.

Many belt candidates implement these projects and just go through the numbers in an effort to get the project done as quick as possible. The standard results ultimately give the process a bad name.

In this session, we will look at some ways to make some of the key process deliverables more prime vs. select or mediocre.

We will learn ways to take some of the standard continuous improvement tools and methods and sharpen them for better results. We will also look at adding some tools and techniques from the data science space to baseline process performance, narrow down root cause and find sustainable solutions.

Through the use of case studies and actual project examples, CI practitioners will learn how to apply these tools while executing or coaching projects ultimately delivering prime results for your business!
