Six Sigma is a tool for improving the profitability of business by aiming to reduce defects to 3.4 per 1,000,000 occurrences, project by project (SPC). The tool is DMAIC, Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control. Six Sigma designates professionals by belts, eg White, Yellow, Green, Black and Master Black.

7 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Lean Six Sigma? Lean is the elimination of waste, based on 5S (Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardise & Sustain).

8 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Competencies-How Did it all Begin? 2005: Training Project –Over many years the Australian Organisation for Quality (AOQ), through its consulting services arm, has been asked to source training providers for employers in need of training in Lean Six Sigma. –Training and competency of Lean Sigma experts varies considerably across Australia. 2006: Formation of Six Sigma Division 2007: The Six Sigma Division decided to champion and facilitate the derivation of an appropriate set of international competencies for assessment to Black, Green and Yellow belts.

9 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Standardisation Process ? RABQSA has a standard process for developing and registering competencies: Need, Facilitation by RABQSA, Scheme Committee – developed by AOQ-QLD™, Facilitated Meeting to agree on Competencies and Measures, Review Period – total of about 6 weeks, Registration & launch to RABQSA Web Site, Feedback welcomed

10 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Standardisation Process ? Scheme Committee is to assist RABQSA in four key areas: key stakeholder engagement; ongoing review of scheme requirements; advice on RABQSA policies and procedures; and independent review of Complaints and Appeals.

11 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Standardisation Process ? The role of each Sub-Scheme Committee is to: provide key stakeholder engagement; develop certification requirements for a specific scheme or schemes; identify requirements for maintenance of certification; provide advice on methods for examination of defined competencies; and provide validation of certification requirements to ensure ongoing relevance to industry.

12 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies Standardisation Process ? Six Sigma Scheme committee that was developed consisted of: AOQ-QLD™ as Champion Facilitator - RABQSA AOQ-QLD™ Six Sigma Division Minitab NAB Quality-Associates International South East Pragmatic Improvement SAI Global Segla SGS Snowden Group Refer

13 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies ASQ – American Society for Quality has a Body of Knowledge, which provides some assessment for competency. A participant can develop a project to be reviewed by an ASQ committee and then can sit the (multiple choice) examinations to obtain a Black belt, for example. This could follow a training period and possibly an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) process to reduce the training cost. Six Sigma Competencies-Introduction

14 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies What are Competencies? A competency is the minimum capability that a competent person can perform, either –Competent, or –Not yet Competent This may not be sufficient for some employers.

15 Brisbane Rotary The Development and Use of Lean Six Sigma Competencies What is the Format and Why? The competencies are laid out as follows: CompetencyPerformance CriteriaEvidence Guide
