THE TIME, THE MONEY OR THE ATTITUDE??

If I may ask; which of these is most important, which is most difficult to manage and which stands as a barrier to our growth in becoming better people and mangers in the near future? I am sure these mean different things to us, as well as, their importance in terms of priotity.

For me, the ………. is the most important.

So am just relating these to six sigma implementation in organisations and wondering which of these stands as the most significant barrier to six sigma implementation in organisations? Six sigma doesn’t seem to be a cheap venture to undertake (the money), it tends to be time consuming (the time) and the resistance to change on the part of the people in the organisation (the attitude).

How can it be succesfully implemented in a small and medium scale enterprise (SMEs) where these barriers are inherent with the lack of financial resources being topmost and considering that the SME is in a dire need of improvement? Can the six sigma process then be reduced to save time and cost with the aim of also being very effective and producing the same required results like it would have done in a large scale enterprise where the whole six sigma process was fully implemented?

Answering the question I asked earlier, there is a saying “your attitude determines your altitude”….pls don’t ask me who said it because I haven’t got a clue. Having the right attitude to whatever it is you want to achieve is key which is the most important for me. The most difficult thing to manage is time, and yes money could be a barrier … (I am only a student right now), but definitely outside the walls of warwick university fully trained as a masters graduate in management for business excellence, hopefully money wouldn’t pose as a barrier to becoming a better person.

    I think a combination of all three is important, We need to create time, have the right attidude and of course without the finances to actually undertake the project, the having the time and attitude will not be able to achieve much.

    Time is Money so I think the biggest barrier is the attitude. Six Sigma is very analytic which might challenge people “let just do something” attitude. The time and money factor should more be a goal of doing the project.
