Top Decisions that I've made as a Six Sigma / OpEx Leader:
Teach strategic thinking to Master Black Belts
They need to be thinking like their executive teams
Work in 30-Day Sprints (Agile) w/ teams and on projects
Identify Non-Value Added work and stop doing it
Automate Necessary, Non-Value work
Recognize constraints and break them
Remember how you feel when you are constrained (tight, upset,
etc...) so you can recognize this in yourself and in teams
Systems Thinking is critical.
Interfaces and Interactions are where we fail in product, process
Everything can be tested and learned from
Define the Output you are looking for and define what is "Good"
and "Bad" before testing
All the best,
