The biggest challenge in any Six Sigma initiative—or any other initiatives for that matter—is how to sustain the enthusiasm of everyone. Better yet, how to get them inspired every step of the way, especially when they are faced with one roadblock after another.
Isn’t it that in the DMAIC, the Control phase is probably the most difficult one to manage?
If you’re faced with a similar situation, you may learn from this podcast script courtesy of SBTI.
In that podcast titled, Six Sigma Reinvigoration, Bill Hertzing and Debby Sollenberger, Vice-President for SBTI, talk about how to overcome malaise in your Six Sigma deployment.
BH: What then IS reinvigoration.what does that mean?
DS: Well, reinvigoration means understanding where your deployment is at its current state and then making it better. Reinvigoration can take many forms.again depending upon where a Company is in their Lean Six Sigma journey. The first step, as with everything in Six Sigma, is to measure.to assess your deployment in its current state.in other words conduct a critical analysis of your deployment. And, based on what you find, reinvigoration may mean going back to basics. Back to basics meaning understanding the known critical to quality deployment dimensions.and making sure they’re not overlooked. OR.Reinvigoration may not be a back to basics issue.reinvigoration may mean that it’s time to extend your great deployment.take your current deployment successing further across the organization.

We know that Six Sigma training eats up most of the initial budget for Six Sigma deployment. Although, quality practitioners are always quick to say that the cost is immaterial for the rewards more than compensate for it, still I believe that companies have to start with a considerable budget to even start reaping the fruits of their Six Sigma labor.
Thus companies would love to have a consulting group that help them improve their processes and at the same help them realize significant savings. Six Sigma Breakthrough Technologies, Inc. (SBTI) could be one.
For years, SBTI has kept to their slogan, “Develop your people to build better companies.” True enough, many companies have benefitted from their help.Latest news has it that companies that have commissioned SBTIs services have been enjoying much savings.
Yahoo Finance reports:
Based on a sample of 25 trained and certified SBTI Six Sigma Master Black Belts (MBB), the average savings per MBB personal project is $2,000,000.
In addition, the average annual savings realized from the Six Sigma Black Belts and Green Belts who have been coached by SBTI’s Six Sigma Master Black Belt’s is $7,000,000. This provides a hefty return on investment in excess of 200X for SBTI’s MBB program!
