Since Six Sigmas aim is to find ways to improve the current processes and eliminate potential threats or defects on a certain project, there is still a sizeable probability that it will not yield satisfactory results once not handled well. Merely putting Six Sigma on the scene itself does not mean there is nothing to do anymore. In fact, everyone is expected to work doubly hard as valuable time, effort and resources are at stake, even to the extent of jeopardizing the success of the business. This is the reason why there are a lot of critical options that the company can take to ensure the successful implementation of Six Sigma principles and practices.
One of these is training. Facilitating Six Sigma training classes on all key people within the organization will definitely benefit the company as everyone will be speaking one common language. As a result, there will be lesser room for mistakes. Other companies even take on extra mile and have their employees get Six Sigma certification programs to unleash their full potential in engaging themselves with the project.
Next up would be data measurement. This means that every single detail of the project should be recorded and analyzed so as to determine processes or factors that may have negative effect on the successful completion of the project. Thus, this will eventually result to process improvement.
Lastly, there should be constant monitoring and control over certain repercussions that may arise after process improvement has been implemented. This has an effect on the overall quality of the project, therefore anticipating such occurrences will help in ensuring successful Six Sigma project implementation.
