New Standards In Lean Six Sigma Training-3edyy

Business Lean Six Sigma training must focus on .petency in applying it, if it is to avoid the demise of TQM. Suppose for a moment that I spent two weeks with you and taught you how to use the .plete range of tools in a motor mechanic’s toolkit. I am a tradesman and I am positive I could show you how to use a torque wrench so you correctly tension bolts and nuts, how to use ring spanners so you don’t skin your knuckles or round off the heads of different bolts you might have to tighten or undo and even how to use a reaming tool to safely and effectively polish a brake cylinder. Would you consider yourself a motor mechanic after that experience? Of course not, you and I both know it would be absurd to make such a claim. What would it take before you would be considered .petent enough to be able to use the qualification? In teaching the trade of Motor Mechanic, the qualification is given only after a person has learnt not only how to use each tool, but when they demonstrate the ability to: (1) Decide which tools to use in various mechanical repair situations across a variety of motor vehicles; (2) Apply the tools and processes in the dynamics of an actual work environment; and (3) Achieve and maintain new levels of performance as a result of their work. Would you consider yourself a doctor after learning how to use each of the tools used in surgery? Would it make sense to consider someone a .petent dentist if all they learnt was how to operate the tools of dentistry? Of course we wouldnt for the same reasons. It seems to me that in the world of business improvement, in particular Lean Six Sigma Training, there has been a shift in some quarters away from this .petency based thinking. There are so many providers of Lean Six Sigma Training these days that we are overwhelmed with offerings. I get the impression that every consulting .pany of significance has jumped on the band wagon. Correspondingly, the duration of Lean Six Sigma Training offered for project team leaders varies greatly. For example, advertised Black Belt training can range from as long as six weeks of face-to-face delivery to as short as five days to get a certificate as a qualified Black Belt. I struggle to .e to grips with how the latter can be realistically achieved! Learning to be.e a .petent Black Belt or Green Belt is like learning a trade. When we had our Lean Six Sigma Training programs accredited with the national training body in Australia that certifies all formal tertiary qualifications, I was not surprised that the Black Belt program met the requirements for an Advanced Diploma qualification. We all must recognise that .petency in the tools is not what was intended with these qualifications. Someone who does a bit of online learning and few days of face-to-face training in the tools and key concepts may end up with an understanding of Lean Six Sigma and its tools. That does not set them up to be a qualified practitioner. Learning the tools does not make the Black Belt or Green Belt. .petent Black or Green Belts are people who can describe and use the tools relevant to their level of qualification in the context of the processes that are core to their business. They can also effectively facilitate an improvement project within the challenges of working with a project team, generate and analyse data using advanced statistical methods appropriate to the out.e they are seeking, facilitate the generation of creative solutions from those who work with the process, and manage the challenges of building sustainable .mitment to change in a dynamic environment. To be able to demonstrate this type of .petency requires hands on training in an environment where they have to work with other people. It requires a good deal of coaching, mentoring and application of the tools and concepts under the constraints and limitations of day-to-day business. The goal of any Lean Six Sigma Training must be genuine .petency and the achievement of results. The best providers of Lean Six Sigma Training today require a clear demonstration of .petency before they will issue certificates or qualifications. Be cautious of the all too .mon claims that qualifications in Lean Six Sigma can be delivered in very short time frames. They may be teaching people some tools, but if you are considering buying their product take the time to assess whether or not they are teaching people to be.e .petent practitioners. Just as a toolkit does not maketh the motor mechanic, the Lean Six Sigma process and tools do not maketh a Six Sigma practitioner. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
