Six Sigma Improvement Projects strategic selection - Recognize, Define, Launch… succeed!

This Six Sigma Project selection course will empower you to take a giant leap forward in improving your business.

During this course, you will learn to Recognize multiple areas of opportunity for improvement, Define the opportunities and create a Launch plan to achieve those improvements. There is a lot covered in this course, but it really is as easy as 1-2-3.

Generating high impact projects consists of performing a Project Selection Process (“PSP”) to identify the company’s areas of concern; those areas where significant business problems or opportunities exist. The Opportunity Analysis is performed through two primary approaches: 1) by identifying any and all opportunities perceived by the management team and 2) by identifying specific problems which are preventing the accomplishment of specific goals and objectives of the organization.

Following this process will allow any business unit manager, from Department Manager through Chief Executive Officer, to identify ALL opportunities for improvement throughout the business unit. The opportunities identified may relate to any and all of the corporate strategies – they needn’t be solely financial savings in nature.

The methodology of the PSP will create a fertile and highly structured list of projects linked to strategy and projected benefits (usually dollars) that are then organized by area and responsibility. Assisting the PSP methodology is a process for defining projects, assuring they are clearly written with all of the essential information to achieve meaningful results. The PSP is a complete methodology from project ideation to project definition, selection, and ongoing management through the business improvement roadmap.

We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
