Lean Six Sigma is a well-established process improvement methodology and one of the keys to its success is the careful selection of projects. Generally speaking, projects that are 500 to 700 hours are an appropriate size. But in addition to this, there are many other factors that make successful process improvement projects.

In this module we cover 6 sources of Six Sigma projects including 23 questions that can also generate projects. Then we'll look at considerations of good projects and the elements of a project contract. A comprehensive review of both the DMAIC and DMADV project contract is covered.

The DMAIC and DMADV project contracts consists of seven sections: problem statement, project scope, the objectives of the projects, the planned project schedule, team members and business case, the project metric and financial projections.

When this module is completed, you will have an understanding where to find source suitable projects. You will also understand the depth and importance of a good project charter. This material is suitable for independent study or formal classroom training and includes a list of tools and quiz questions.

Comes with 4 Excel templates: DMAIC Project Charter, DMADV Project Charter, ISISNOT, Project Burn Down.
