Why Lean Six Sigma? Why now? Fortune 500 companies like GE are using these tools to save big bucks. In 1998, GE invested $450 million to achieve $2 billion in savings. Make no mistake about it, when Jack Welch, the CEO of GE, got behind Six Sigma, it took a big leap forward. Unfortunately, the Fortune 500 version of Lean Six Sigma comes with an exorbitant price tag and lengthy implementation process that most companies can’t afford. That’s why I distilled the essence into Lean Six Sigma DeMYSTiFieD.
CHAPTER 1 What is Lean Six Sigma 9 This means that we need to shift our attention from manufacturing quality to service quality. More and more, America is becoming the “brain” of the planet and other countries are the hands. I recently spoke to an executive who was retiring after 32 years from a manufacturing company. They had just completed offshoring their manufacturing business. Only a few dozen managers remained to oversee the business. And I’ve talked to small manufacturing shops that are doing well, meeting the needs of companies like Toyota and Honda who continue to manufacture in the United States.
So it makes sense, periodically, to look back over the last week, month, and year: • What worked? What have you learned? • What have you accomplished? • How have you grown? • What’s next? Life is often lived in fits and starts, moving ahead and falling back, but in general, with the right set of starting beliefs and values, the quality of life improves. Where were you five or ten years ago? What has improved? What have you let go of that you no longer need? Without rewards, anyone will eventually give up their quest for improvement.
