PMI website. We were let free so that we can work on tomorrow's presesntation – SoPK & Six sigma. Had our team meeting in learning grid, started at 3pm. As we were discussing there was a proposal…why not team 1 and two club together and make a presentation…. but somehow did not materialise. We decided that we will part off study some materials / stuff, then comeback and decide on further course of action.After 1.5hrs of study within learning grid itself, we the team (ashok,vlad,alex and bettychen) met again to discuss on what to present. Several ideas which rose are….. SS is not something new, its TQM with a different skin….Too much hype created might be to make money…..doesnot consider human factor…..what will happen if best practices like SoPK,hoshinkanri,SS,EFQM are done in an organisation after modficiations in their system…will the organisation survive or succeed. Based on the various ideas generated finally decided on the flow to be….definition of excellent organisation….six sigma…..SoPK….try to fit & see SS fitting in SoPK using a fourquadrant method… conculsion. Presentation came well, but most of us were not confident on the volume of material collected. After much of debate and disucssion…alex came foward to make the presentaiton. As I reached the room it was 9pm, had two hours time to spend on LE assignment. End of day.
