  3. Ground Rules for Workshop • Interactive Discussion is a Must • Please Participate in Discussion • Ask Questions • Open Dialogue is Welcome • Others?

  4. Y = Successful Deployment X1 = Leadership Commitment X2 = Project Selection X3 = Black Belts Selection X4 = Fully Dedicated Black Belts X5 = Champion Engagement X6 = Master Black Belt Support X7 = Organizational Tools X8 = Sustaining Infrastructure Scale 100 % 75% 50% or less

  5. X1 = Leadership Commitment • Leadership must be engaged at Day 1 and Steer the Ship North

  6. What to Expect X1 = Leadership Commitment • Pitch: Some Leaders will not buy in to Lean Six Sigma, be prepared to Put on your Salesman Hat • Results: Leaders will want to realize the benefits of the projects quickly, Tie Savings to the Bottom-line by Partnering with Finance • Success: Leaders want results fast, Show early Successes and Pick the Right Projects to allow for this

  7. X2 = Project Selections • Selecting the right projects is key to establish early successes and gain buy-in • Align Six Sigma projects to critical business and customer strategies and operating goals • Establish a documented process for a 1-year Six Sigma project hopper refresh

  8. X2 = Project Selections • Establish projects of appropriate size and scope, along with significant savings • Assign a Champion and Black Belt to each project and outline expectations for accountability upfront • Implement a project tracking system to facilitate replication and reuse, this will save you effort in the long run and ensure visibility

  9. X2 = Project Selections Idea Generation Definition Prioritization Execution All Projects Must Pass Through a Strategic Filter.

  10. What to Expect X2 = Project Selections • You won’t always pick the right project; Don’t be scared to stop a project that may have been the wrong choice • People will bring Pet Projects to the table • Show early Successes

  11. X3 = Black Belts Selection • Black Belt Attributes are essential • Be sure to do rigorous interviewing to select the right belts • Utilize Predictive Index

  12. What to Expect X3 = Black Belts Selection • Proper mentoring and coaching from the MBB and Champion will develop good belts • Be sure to select the number of Belts that is a good fit for you to manage

  13. Key Belt Attributes

  14. X4 = Fully Dedicated Black Belts • Until Deployment Maturity develops it is highly recommended to have your Black Belts be Full Time Positions • Standardize Job Descriptions upfront • Create a Career Ladder so Belts can see the road to growth either into a Business Leader or an MBB

  15. Career Ladder

  16. What to Expect X4 = Fully Dedicated Black Belts • It will be hard to keep Belts focused • They may not fully transition themselves from their old job • If they are split between two roles they become jugglers, avoid this

  17. Breakout Groups • Break into groups by Deployment Age; i.e.: 6months, 1 year, 1 ½ years, 2 years • Discuss Your Experience with Critical X1 - X4of Deployment and any actions you have had to take • Each Group should be Prepared to do a 5-7 minute Report Out on their discussion

  18. X5 = Champion Engagement • Set expectations upfront, Champions need to be involved and remove barriers • Must have Weekly and Biweekly Mentor meetings with MBB and BB • Ensure Steering Committee Involvement

  19. What to Expect X5 = Champion Engagement • Mentor and refresh Champions of needed tools • Remind them of expectations they committed to if they become inactive • Ensure your Champions are equipped with the right questions to ask at each DMAIC Tollgate

  20. X6 = Master Black Belt Support • Developing and Selecting the right MBB candidates upfront is critical to sustainability • It’s okay to supplement with consultants at the beginning, but plan to self sustain when appropriate • Use the same rigorous process to select MBBs that you do for BBs

  21. What to Expect X6 = Master Black Belt Support • MBBs should be future leaders of your Company, develop them as such • MBBs need to have a planned time to exit back into the organization as a business leader

  22. X7 = Organizational Tools • You may need consultants to start • Plan for Training Materials and Training Sessions • Create a Process for Certification of GBs, BBs and MBBs • Ensure a Process for Project Selection, Project Review, Belt Selection • Create Visibility with a Dashboard • Visible, Consistent Support and an Active Communications, Reward and Recognition

  23. What to Expect X7 = Organizational Tools • Developing these tools for sustainment takes time, be sure to dedicate time to this upfront, possibly even assigning an MBB(s) or BB(s) to these tasks

  24. X8 = Sustaining Infrastructure Leadership Team Project Champion Project Champion Master Black Belt Black Belt Black Belt Yellow Belts Green Belt Green Belt A Sustaining Infrastructure Must Have Senior Management’s Support and Guidance.

  25. X8 = Sustaining Infrastructure

  26. What to Expect X8 = Sustaining Infrastructure • Steering Committee Reviews with the appropriate stakeholders is key to ensure project awareness and to share touch points • Top level leadership must have oversight of the deployment and keep track of the health • Functional owners need to own their deployment and sustain the infrastructure and results
