We’ve just started Six Sigma in the organization I recently joined. Similar to ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation) of Instructional Systems Design, Six Sigma has it has own stages known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control).
Like in any project having a good start is critical. The Define stage describes the business need, the issue or problem, objectives, as well as the scope of the project. This is all captured in the Project Charter. However, this is only the beginning of the Define stage, there are other steps that follow after the Project Charter has been completed. But for our organization, I think we had a good start. Let me share to you the Project Charter template I used for this project. I hope you find it useful.
Has your organization embraced Six Sigma?
