Guide and Best Practices

Six Sigma is a system - a quality management methodology - businesses use to improve processes, products or services by identifying and eliminating defects and inefficiencies.

Six Sigma Implementation Steps

  • Identify the problem that negatively impacts your business performance or customer satisfaction.
  • Create a process map/ value stream map of the current process to closely examine it and understand the status of its current performance.
  • Invite process owners to share their knowledge when drawing the process map and examining it for inefficiencies with Creately real-time collaboration.
  • Gather enough data to understand the root cause of the problem. Use the 5 Whys analysis or a fishbone diagram to carry out the root cause analysis.
  • Brainstorm solutions to eliminate the identified defects. Select the best solutions and create future-state process maps based on them.
  • Once the best solutions are implemented, review them regularly to measure the improvements and make adjustments.
  • Share the diagrams you have created by embedding them in your organization’s intranet, website or by adding them to presentations and documents so everyone can easily access them.
