02 Jun Re-Energizing a Failing Lean Six Sigma Initiative
A global, $15 billion per year company desired improved results from its global Lean Six Sigma program. The program, as it was currently functioning, was in decline and had long ceased yielding the desired results.
eMRI was asked by a senior executive to provide consultation services and to utilize its background in corporate Lean Six Sigma implementation to re-energize the Lean Six Sigma Program. A 90-day window to evidence improvement was agreed upon.
eMRI met with and surveyed employees from the senior leadership team down through supervisory-level employees. Analysis of the survey results was used to develop a strategy that would be supported by senior leadership and drive Lean Six Sigma success. A seven-step strategy was crafted. Steps were focused on key cultural, strategic and tactical issues facing the program.
The client’s Leadership team and the Lean Six Sigma team agreed with the implementation of all seven of the recommendations. Specific results yielded positive feedback in terms of Lean Six Sigma momentum and project results across the organization.
