Process Improvement Deployment

A lean Six Sigma deployment for process improvement typically involves the creating of improvement projects that are to have reported financial benefits. These cost savings projects are to be facilitated and/or executed by lean Six Sigma Master Black belts, lean Six Sigma black belts or lean Six Sigma green belts.

Lean Six Sigma belts are to be trained in process improvement tools. In a lean Six Sigma deployment, projects are to be selected by management. Lean Six Sigma champions are to be executives that are involved with not only project selection but making sure that process improvement efforts get completed.

However, in a traditional lean Six Sigma deployment often projects never get completed or improvement efforts are in silos that do not have big-picture benefits. Lean Six Sigma deployments are frequently terminated because executive leadership is not seeing tangible results.

The issues with a traditional lean Six Sigma deployment are overcome when an Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) deployment. With IEE, predictive performance scorecards that would benefit the business as a whole when improved pulls for process enhancement efforts.

IEE could be considered lean Six Sigma 2.0.
