SANTA VS SIX SIGMA

Christmas time is here again,

It's a time of peace and goodwill to all men, homecoming/homegoing, shopping, giving and receiving of gifts, opportunity for some good rest and time spending with family and loved ones.

It could also be a time for sober reflection on the year's activities......kind of a stock checking thingy to see how one performed during the year which is about to roll by and what needs to be improved in the new year.

For me, homegoing means a six hour trip back to Nigeria a connecting flight to Delta State and some few hours road trip to the family...with the hope that there are no special causes just common causes only so as not to change the whole process...

Although there wasn't any homegoing for me, but i am just thinking of how six sigma implementation (DMAIC) would have helped solved any problems in the homegoing plan if i had one? Or how it would have helped reduce movement time or any variations in the process.

.......If Santa was the CEO of the christmas season company that was applying six sigma methodology to improve its business performance and ensure consistent quality, i am certain we would all be doing loads of shopping, travelling or buying/receiving gifts rather than looking for ways to reduce waste(no shopping) and cutting down on our movement/cycle times(no homegoing or coming)......just wondering though!!!

HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
