Corporate Path

We believe that Six Sigma is the most powerful breakthrough management tool ever devised to allow companies to drastically improve their bottom line. Such processes require designing and monitoring the everyday business activities in ways that wastes and resources are minimized while increasing customer satisfaction.

 

Six Sigma guides companies into making fewer mistakes in everything they do, by eliminating lapses in quality at the earliest possible occurrence and producing superior financial results using business strategies that not only revive companies but help them leapfrog ahead of their competition in terms of market share and profitability.

Companies such as Honeywell, General Electric, Sony, Honda, Bombardier, Canon, Hitachi, and Polaroid are just a few of the many giants that embraced successfully the Six Sigma methodology.

PHASE 1  -  TRAINING PROGRAM

Every company can choose to train a group of its employees on one of our four Lean Six Sigma Training Programs, each with a different duration, structure and return.

The exam will assess the candidates on a theoretical and practical level and after successfully completing it, they will be officially recognized as a Lean Six Sigma Belts.

PHASE 3  -  PROJECT SELECTION

Once a company has created its pool of Black, Green or White belts, it can start to deploy the Six Sigma methodology.

The first step to begin a new project is to select which improvement activity will have the highest impact on the business and link it to the highest levels of strategy in the organization which directly support specific business objectives. The projects selected to improve business productivity and quality must also be agreed upon by both business and operational leadership, which will then assign to a Black Belt and a team the "ownership" of the project. This stage is critical since it allows companies to select the best projects based on the potential dollar amount they can return, the amount and types of resources they will require, and the length of time it will take to complete it.

Types of focus
At the Business level, projects are based on the company's strategic goals and direction. Black Belt projects should be aimed at improvinthingsgs such as customer satisfaction, cost capacity, and top-end growth.
At the Operational level, Six Sigma projects will have a greater local impact than they will have at the business level. Projects at this level focus on key operational and technical problems that link to strategic goals and objectives of the company such as budget reductions, improve process flow, identify specific areas of waste, and resolve supplier quality issues.
At the Process level, projects focus on those processes and critical-to-quality characteristics that offer the greatest financial and customer-satisfaction leverage. Each project is properly planned to identify the different categories of CTQs and address at least one element of the organization's key business objectives.
Our help
Every Six Sigma Project is designed to ultimately benefit the customer and improve the company's profitability. Industrial business should focus on high volume and high revenue product lines, while commercial business should streamline translational processes that directly impact the customer.
 
But projects also need to improve rolled throughput yield, scrap reduction, downtime, and overall capacity, activities that require technical knowledge and experience. This is why, upon completion of the training, SSMI will provide support during the Project Selection stage to the companies that want to apply straight-away the new methodology.
 
We will help identify the process and the metrics that have the biggest leverage on your business's profitability, customer satisfaction, and quality level.

PHASE 4  -  COACHING & MENTORING

Whether a company decides to train its employees or it believes it already has the necessary knowledge and skills to deploy Six Sigma projects, the Six Sigma Management Institute will provide coaching and support to make sure the projects succeed and breakthrough is achieved.
 
Our coaching and consulting expertise have helped the most established companies in the world complete the most ambitious and complex improvement projects in financial, aerospace, manufacturing, automotive and many other sectors. Hence, our portfolio traces back projects that were the first attempts to deploy Lean and Six Sigma initiatives in the same companies that are now leaders in their market.
 
Our pool of Black Belts will provide support in every phase of the projects, from defining the goals to controlling the key metrics that governs the process.
