Improving Multiple Processes Simultaneously


Peter Gaa, Principal Director, Accenture, Waring, TX, USA


End-to-End E2E, Multi-Kaizen, Simultaneous Process Improvement


All Sectors



How do you avoid “squeezing the balloon” with a process improvement project within an end-to-end (E2E) business system which possesses many processes? Sometimes a single process segment is improved but the new process just pushes problems to upstream or downstream processes. Therefore, the net effect is that the E2E is not flowing better. One strategy to avoid this issue is to simultaneously improve multiple processes within the E2E by developing synchronized solutions in a larger event. This presentation will reveal an overview of how to realistically organize, prepare, and lead simultaneous process improvement events known as “multi-kaizens” for several processes inside the E2E. This can ensure the entire E2E flows better rather than just one process segment. Creating a more harmonious workplace is achieved due to increasing coordination, cooperation, and communication between workers in different processes within the E2E.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
