SSDSI Launches Lean Six Sigma Jumpstart Events, Green Belt and Black Belt Certifications

Six Sigma Development Solutions developed the Lean and Six Sigma Jumpstart Event which is a "hyper-focused" event that encompasses both Lean and Six Sigma.
    FORT SMITH, AR, May 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Six Sigma Development Solutions, or SSDSI, has found that the typical Six Sigma format lacks a certain span of time for the team to be "hyper focused" on the problem.

This led SSDSI to develop the Lean and Six Sigma Jumpstart Event which is a "hyper-focused" event that encompasses both Lean and Six Sigma. This is not the same exact format as a Lean Kaizen event, but it follows the same basic premise. The Six Sigma Jumpstart basic format is below:

- Day 0 - Starts four weeks prior to the event

- This is to start the Define Phase of Lean and Six Sigma

- Complete Project Charter

- Develop initial multi-vari sheet(s)

- Collect data for Baseline capability analysis

- Secure Resources needed for the event

- Complete the SIPOC (if possible)

- Session #1 of the Lean and Six Sigma 5 Day Jumpstart - Day 1 - 2 1/2 - This is the first 2.5 days of the 5 day event (Normally Monday 8am - Wednesday 12pm)

- This is to complete the Define Phase and to start the Measure and Analyze Phase

- Complete the SIPOC with the SMEs

- Complete the Value Stream Map (if needed)

- Employ other Lean tools if needed (Spaghetti Map, QFD, etc.)

- Perform MSAs

- Perform initial capability analysis

- Complete the Process Map with the SMEs

- Complete the Variables Map, C&E Matrix and FMEA

- Perform Multi Vari Analysis, Hypothesis Testing and other statistical tools to determine the KPIVs

- Project Plan for Session #2 of the Lean and Six Sigma Jumpstart

- Four week intermission between Session #1 and Session #2

- Complete any Quick Wins

- Gather and Analyze further data if needed

- Perform MSAs on updated measurements

- Develop pilot test for the improvement

- Session #2 of the Lean and Six Sigma 5 Day Jumpstart - Day 2 1/2 - 5 - This is the first 2.5 days of the 5 day event (Normally Monday 8am - Wednesday 12pm)

- Complete DFMEA (Risk Management of the Improvement)

- Complete the improvements that are applicable within the 5 week timeframe

- Collect data from the improved process

- Perform updated Capability Analysis

- Develop the "30 Day Plan"

- Develop the Stakeholder Report Out

- The team gives the Report Out to the Stakeholders on the Last hour of the event (normally 11pm-12pm on Wednesday)

SSDSI uses this format with groups of 3-5 Lean and Six Sigma Practitioners or Potential Lean and Six Sigma Green Belt (students).

These Jumpstart Sessions can be very successful if performed correctly under a strong infrastructure. The hyper focused time on the opportunity does not allow for teams to get distracted. The Stakeholder Report out with "bosses", VPs, Colleagues and other Peers is a motivator to maintain focus on the opportunity.

Six Sigma Development Solutions provides Lean and Six Sigma Training and Deployment.
