Operational improvement projects may actually yield little accountable, measurable value if the projects are not selected based on their potential contribution to operational improvement objectives. It isn't enough to deal with the problems you already know about--the "low-hanging fruit." Often, operational excellence requires that you go find ones you didn't even know existed.
Webinar was Hosted by World Trade Group on Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. (New York Time)
During this webinar you will learn how to:
Discover value in previously unknown opportunities
Identify the value of opportunities from business, process, and human performance perspective
Determine what data is relevant vs. merely interesting
Why a focus on cause vs. severity of effect is critical to selecting and prioritizing projects
Set improvement goals based on best demonstrated performance (the power of identifying positive deviations)
Choose opportunity targets based on their potential contribution to operational improvement objectives

The intent of any Six Sigma activity is to improve a process. Successful Six Sigma activities start with making the process "visible" through functional process maps that define the process, detailed metrics, and clear performance expectations for the people involved in the process. By making the process visible, Six Sigma practitioners can analyze the information and plan/implement solutions. This activity is enhanced by the use of Kepner-Tregoe tools for project management, problem solving, decision making, and human performance management. In addition, KT tools are integral to the creation of these interrelated Six Sigma products:
Process Definition Records
Functional Work Flowcharts
Process Performance Agreements
Balanced Process Scorecard

One of the most oft-cited statistics in pharmaceutical manufacturing is that 80% of all reportable deviations are “people problems” - deficiencies of human performance. This Web event will use case studies and a performance system model to explore if people are really to blame, and when they are, why and what can be done? While the solution to people problems should leave room for retraining, it needs to go beyond. Organizations must apply the same vigor to analyzing and resolving people problems as they apply to mechanical or biochemical problems.
Quality, in all aspects, should be a priority. This includes improving human performance, not with words and slogans, but with rewards, measures, metrics, and behavior. A performance system model can be used to address common people problems with analytical precision and effective action that results in enduring performance improvement.
