Deploying Six Sigma as a business strategy through Six Sigma tools usage and projects is an effective way to realize the benefits of Six Sigma deployment. Six Sigma projects offer better bottom-line results and they allow for better feedback and increased communication for process strategies and critical business processes. To properly create the infrastructure all projects should be used to meet the company’s business strategy and use Six Sigma as a plan and map to effectively meet those goals.
Organizations fail at Six Sigma implementation because they are missing the proper infrastructure. The infrastructure can be a number of things employees, strategy, metrics, or technology. Companies should focus on deployment, execution, and results. Meaning, they should focus on the actual work of Six Sigma not just training employees. Many companies train and fail to deploy and execute. The leadership of your company is responsible to provide the structure, direction, vision, and organizational culture for Six Sigma success. Combining the vision in conjunction with the deployment and execution provides your company the competitive edge for the business economy of today. Businesses and companies have always had challenges. Six Sigma will help you meet the new challenges which evolve highly around technology improvements and new innovation.
Having looked at the Six Sigma infrastructure and implementation remember, now is the time. There is no better time than the present to implement Six Sigma and companies often find many reasons to prolong beginning improvement initiatives. Leadership is key to influencing the change and mentoring the culture. Company leaders have to be willing to do themselves what they’re asking employees to do. This involves direct engagement in their activities. The core competency to sustain Six Sigma improvement is seen through experience and growth over time.
