This book shows four typical paths through the DMAIC process to accomplish four different objectives: reduce variability of a characteristic, reduce failures of a machine, reduce waste in a process, and reduce the frequency of a defect. For each path, the methodology, step details, and a simple one-page checklist is presented. Project selection and team management are also discussed, since the choice of projects is crucial to creating context and therefore success.
Matt Meuleners, Executive Partner at FOCUS Training, discusses change and ambiguity, and the best practices an organization can use to lead through ambiguity.
