In the 2nd Lean Six Sigma Conference 2012, Dr. Chandramogan Anamirtham, president and general manager of Hitachi Global Storage Technologies Philippines Corp., shared how his company embarked on a Lean Six Sigma Journey.

Dr. Chandramogan showed us a video with a message that innovation starts with you. You don’t need to wait for other people to work or begin. Begin a task yourself. Create that breakthrough.

Their journey started with Dr. Chandra’s model for manufacturing excellence:

Q uality – Quality of People, Process, Product

U nit Cost – Value, Cost Consciousness

A ko – (In English, Me) means Accountability

L ean Six Sigma – Structured approach to improvement

I nnovation – Breakthrough, Patent

T eamwork – Inter-department, across sites

Y ield – Productivity, Output/Input

Product – Process – People

Lessons from Hitachi’s quality journey:

  • Invest in people
  • Invest in training
  • Create change
  • Embrace that change until that change becomes a way of life
  • Nurture that culture by giving people the opportunity to grow in your company
