What are Six Sigma Projects?
Six Sigma projects, simply stated, is a process through which companies are able to minimize, if not totally eliminate, the existing shortcomings and improve the quality of all the critical business-centric processes. Any Six Sigma project, for it to fully succeed, must clearly address some critical areas such as - end objectives, management commitment and lasting support and competence of the Six Sigma teams working on the project.
For ensuring the success of Six Sigma projects, the three vital ingredients are - a well defined project charter, a statement of all anticipated problems and last but not least in importance, a mission statement.
By studying the project charter, the problem statements and mission statement, the project managers and team members will obtain a comprehensive idea about the Six Sigma project, what needs to be done, and when and how. These documents will aid successful project implementation, within the expected time frame and budgetary limits.
