Lean Six Sigma 2.0 Web Meeting: Abstract
Why Lean Six Sigma Deployments Fail: And what you can do to resolve the Issue
Forrest W. Breyfogle III
Know anyone who has been laid off because his/her organization’s Lean and/or Six Sigma deployment was downsized or eliminated? My bet is that you know people and organizations who have encountered this fate. Maybe even you have been a victim of this process-improvement deployment shrinkage/elimination issue. What happened? What can be done to resolve this issue? Presented is a solution to this frequently-encountered occurrence. In this session, we will first assess the past and then determine the ten steps you could follow to resolve this disbandment problem for organizational process-improvement deployments.
Content for this presentation is taken from an article that was published in the August 2017 issue of Quality Progress. This ASQ-publication article was written by the presenter.
Each attendee should download the following and have a printed copy that can be used during the presentation:
- ASQ Quality Progress August 2017 article: “Why Lean and/or Six Sigma Deployments Fail: And what you can do to resolve the Issue”
- “Presentation Questions Why Lean Six Sigma Deployments Fail and what do about it”
