Last day of PIUSS.
On the last day of PIUSS we had very interesting class. Dr. Angela Clarke spoke us about her experience of Six Sigma implementation. Also she suggested issues which should be focused when introducing the change. What I learned was that training should be considered wisely. Too much training is not always good, and sometimes it is better to find a balance and spend time to train the majority on yellow belt level. However, I think that the most difficult task is making the projects the part of daily routine. I think people will always react to changes and tend to priotorise their own job. We as a team decided that when projects are small-scale and related to the job, it can be fitted in every day business. Of course, people motivation and encouragement is again managers' responsibility.
Analysing case study, I also realized that every project takes much time at the initial steps. This proves the importance of the "DEFINE" stage as the success of the whole project depends on how good the problem and solutions are sorted out.
