The Lean Six Sigma Transformation Roadmap for Manufacturing – With Over 20 Dropbox Excel File Links for Immediate Use and Application: Tools to Help Transform Your Organization!

The Lean Six Sigma Transformation Roadmap for Manufacturing provides:

• Four basic organizational enablers that will help determine if the organization and its leadership is ready to commit to the Lean Sigma transformation process or simply implement Lean Sigma tools

• A detailed, step-by-step four stage (i.e., the Roadmap) approach to transforming an organization

• Access to over 20 Excel worksheets for immediate application and use

These three main topics are inter-dependent and can easily be integrated with current business programs to be “the” solution for your successful transformation. The examples, worksheets, checklists, etc. provide invaluable insights on how to accelerate current transformation efforts as well as lessen issues or resistance that threaten any transformation.

Lean (and Six Sigma) is continuous improvement as it applies to not only your “processes” but also to your continuous improvement process (i.e., Kaizen Events, Rapid Improvement Events, etc.) and the entire transformation journey. Lean provides a platform that engages employees to focus on value from the customer’s (or patient’s) perspective and identify and eliminate waste. Six Sigma defines a structured and precise problem solving methodology that uses data and measures to eliminate variation and root causes of problems. Lean Sigma when integrated effectively, via a Roadmap (or plan) and management involvement through Gemba Walks, ensures your healthcare organization will achieve that next level of performance excellence.

The main parts or chapters have been arranged as follows:

Overview of Lean and Six Sigma – A brief introduction of Lean and Six Sigma provides an introduction of what Lean and Six Sigma is in terms of philosophy and tools. This will help determine if the organization has the right mindset for which to launch a Lean Sigma transformation. Various continuous improvement and problem solving methodologies will be reviewed.

Roadmap for a Lean Six Sigma Transformation – Provides the basic requirements to help determine if an organization is ready for a Lean transformation or not. A four stage Roadmap will detail a Lean transformation course of activities as well as a course of action if a transformation is not to occur (i.e., apply Lean tools only). Over 20 Excel Dropbox file links will be provided for immediate customization and application.

Transformation Roadmap Assessment –

An assessment will be provided to determine if the organization is ready for a transformation. Scoring Guidelines will help determine the next steps based upon the scores. An Excel Dropbox file link will be provided for immediate customization and application for this Assessment.
