LEAN SIX SIGMA WORLD CONFERENCE ABSTRACT

Integrating Agile Methodologies with Lean Six Sigma Through Kaizen Sprint



Keywords:

Agile, Integration, Framework

Industry:

Service

Level:

Intermediate

Since the growth of the corporate movement using Scrum and other frameworks for project management, there is a challenge of how we can integrate Agile Methods to Operational Excellence and especially the Lean Six Sigma approach.

The Kaizen Sprint was developed by consultants Gilberto Strafacci, José Goldfreind and Márcio Abraham between 2016 and 2017 after various efforts to integrate agile thinking into operational excellence projects. Essentially, Kaizen Sprint incorporates the iterative and incremental life cycle into the typical predictive driving of continuous improvement projects, more specifically the DMAIC.

Agile methods are both iterative and incremental. They are iterative because the work done is always improved in subsequent cycles. They are also incremental, because the planned work is delivered in parts that are added to the whole project.

In this lecture we will present the framework and application cases with results and reflections
