Extract from Presentation

The success of change programs
The “Success” of Change Programs?

“Performance improvement efforts …

have as much impact on

operational and financial results as a

ceremonial rain dance has on the weather”

Schaffer and Thomson,

Harvard Business Review (1992)

Change management two alternative approaches
Change Management:Two Alternative Approaches

Activity Based




Result Oriented


Reference: Schaffer and Thomson, HBR, Jan-Feb. 1992

Activity centered programs
Activity Centered Programs

  • Activity Centered Programs: The pursuit of activities that sound good, but contribute little to the bottom line

  • Assumption: If we carry out enough of the “right” activities, performance improvements will follow

    • This many people have been trained

    • This many companies have been certified

  • Bias Towards Orthodoxy:Weak or no empirical evidence to assess the relationship between efforts and results

An alternative result driven improvement programs
An Alternative: Result-Driven Improvement Programs

  • Result-Driven Programs: Focus on achieving specific, measurable,operational improvements within a few months

  • Examples of specific measurable goals:

    • Increase yield

    • Reduce delivery time

    • Increase inventory turns

    • Improved customer satisfaction

    • Reduce product development time

Result oriented programs
Result Oriented Programs:

  • Project based

  • Experimental

  • Guided by empirical evidence

  • Measurable results

  • Easier to assess cause and effect

  • Cascading strategy

Why transformation efforts fail
Why Transformation Efforts Fail!

  • John Kotter, Professor, Harvard Business School

  • Leading scholar on Change Management

  • Lists 8 common errors in managing change, two of which are:

    • Not establishing a sense of urgency

    • Not systematically planning for and creating short term wins

Six sigma demystified
Six Sigma Demystified*

  • Alignment of customers, strategy, process and people

  • Significant measurable business results

  • Large scale deployment of advanced quality and statistical tools

  • Data based, quantitative

*Adapted from Zinkgraf (1999), Sigma Breakthrough

Technologies Inc., Austin, TX.

Keys to success
Keys to Success*

  • Set clear expectations for results

  • Measure the progress (metrics)

  • Manage for results

*Adapted from Zinkgraf (1999), Sigma Breakthrough

Technologies Inc., Austin, TX.

Six sigma
Six Sigma

  • The precise definition of Six Sigma is not important; the content of the program is

  • A disciplined quantitative approach for improvement of defined metrics

  • Can be applied to all business processes, manufacturing, finance and services

Focus of six sigma
Focus of Six Sigma*

  • Accelerating fast breakthrough performance

  • Significant financial results in 4-8 months

  • Ensuring Six Sigma is an extension of the Corporate culture, not the program of the month

  • Results first, then culture change!

*Adapted from Zinkgraf (1999), Sigma Breakthrough

Technologies Inc., Austin, TX.

Six sigma reasons for success
Six Sigma: Reasons for Success

  • The Success at Motorola, GE and AlliedSignal has been attributed to:

    • Strong leadership (Jack Welch, Larry Bossidy etc. personally involved)

    • Initial focus on operations

    • Aggressive project selection (potential savings in cost of poor quality > $50,000/year)

    • Training the right people

Hands-on Support for Champions Black-Belts and Master Blackbelts

Full Six-Sigma programme from October - Black Belt - Green Belt - Yellow Belt - training and support

This is VERY market / customer driven

Plus - access to on-line support

Keys to success mark ii
Keys to Success Mark II Blackbelts

1. Need to overcome demands on peoples time

2. Need to overcome reluctance to try new methods - fear of failure

3. Must be allowed to discover that the key methods are self correcting!

In other words - you can’t really fail at all
