Lean Six Sigma: Beyond the Project to a Business Management System

Presented by Forrest W. Breyfogle III* President and CEO, Smarter Solutions, Inc.

Organizations have gained much from Lean and Six Sigma project improvement efforts; however, these efforts did not prevent the occurrence of our current economic crisis. Lean Six Sigma, Total Quality Management (TQM), and other process improvement efforts have helped organizations improve; however, these efforts often occur in silos, where the benefits are not felt at the big picture executive level. Because of this, when financial times get tough Lean Six Sigma programs often find that their efforts are being downsized and that both Black Belt and Master Black Belt process improvement practitioners are being laid off.

Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) is a re-invention of our current business system that provides the framework for moving toward the 3 Rs of business. Incorporated in IEE is an Enterprise process Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (E-DMAIC) roadmap.

Described in this presentation are the nine logic steps associated with execution of the E-DMAIC system where strategy creation is step five and incorporates a blending of analytics with innovation for this planning creation. The IEE business management governance system has a metric improvement need pull system for the creation of Project DMAIC (P-DMAIC) improvement efforts, which truly integrate Lean and Six Sigma tools in the roadmap’s execution and benefit the business as a whole upon completion.
