3 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 3 Basic Elements of All Deployments All CI Programs Function at Three Levels –Strategic. The organization converts its strategy into operational goals. This is normally done using Scorecards –Governance. The organization governs its improvement efforts (see “Type of Deployment”). A primary function is project selection. –Implementation. At this level, the organization drives projects & knowledge transfer. This is the project management and problem solving level. Executive Brief: Driving Value Through Operational Excellence

7 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 7 Infrastructure Elements of All Deployments Organizational Infrastructure –Any enterprise initiative, including a Continuous Improvement Program, must consider how it interacts with enterprise level functions such as communications, finance and HR –There are specific CI attributes to all these enterprise issues 7 Article: 10 Elements of CI Infrastructure

8 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 8 TRADITIONAL PUSH MODEL Driven top-down, PUSHED into the organization

9 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 9 Push Model Overview History – Attributed to GE as followers emulated perception of a top down model. Failed to consider GE’s readiness for organizational change and focus on “A” side Focuses on the knowledge to be transferred. Assumes that by providing the organization the capability, it will solve problems as encountered. Measurement of success is in terms of number of belts trained/certified, number of projects completed, “documented” project savings and ROI on training dollars Implementation prescribes population to receive grades of training, # of projects per belt and required savings per project. Targets building capability and then requiring output. Strengths – Easily understood project plans. Scales quickly. The Army is taught to march and then made to march. Challenge – Takes on its own life, irrespective of company needs. Can be rejected by business outright or thru weak compliance.

12 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 12 Push Model – Advantages & Challenges Highly prescriptive Easily scalable and builds capability quickly Measures success in terms of deployment factors (projects completed, “realizable” savings per project, # belts trained & certified, etc.) May be perceived as another initiative and not as a fundamental change in the way things are done Big investment in training up-front, more training centric. Project returns (ROI) are slower. Risk of burn out before any results can be realized Can take a life of its own, becoming a cost center Best at responsive, top down organizations with supportive and actively engaged top leadership

20 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 20 Organizational Readiness To help design CI programs, SSQ utilizes a proprietary Organizational Deployment Readiness model that looks at 5 different dimensions of readiness: –Many CI deployments, over time, falter, stall or fail –The business process improvement methodologies have been proven to work, so what’s the reason for sub-performing CO programs? –M any times, deployment failures can be traced to a mismatch between the Organizations Readiness for change and which methodologies are being deployed –In our experience there are 5 main “Dimensions of Readiness” that impact CI program design: Article: Let Your Business Define Your Improvement Program See Appendix B for Detail of Model

21 Improving Your Business Results Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec Six Sigma Qualtec – All Rights Reserved 21 Which Model is Right? PUll Process Maturity Objectivity Leadership (Support) ToolsChange Push Model requires mature processes, ready & knowledgeable organization, and driven & supportive leadership. If not present, the Push Model’s effectiveness is weakened as you require the Pull Model’s greater focus on strategic linkage and program governance. Pull Model will work at either end of the spectrum but always requires significant investment in governance which can be somewhat avoided when the circumstances allow for the Push Model. Pull Push See Appendix B for Detail of Model
