The Blind ‘I’ of DMAIC

Posted by:

Shameless plug: there’s still time to register for our free, one-hour webinar, The Blind ‘I’ of DMAIC. This webinar explores the connection between innovation and process improvement. Our Master Trainer has decades of experience applying Edward de Bono’s thinking tools, Six Thinking Hats and Lateral Thinking, to Lean Sigma programs at blue chip companies.

In his experience, most process improvement initiatives are extremely good at DMAC – in other words, at defining the situation, measuring variables, analyzing the data, and controlling the new solution. Where they fail is the “I” – the improvement. Most Lean Sigma programs spend very little time thinking about how to improve the status quo process – instead, they implement the first solution that springs to mind.

This webinar will teach process improvement professionals how to apply Six Thinking Hats and Lateral Thinking to DMAIC programs to radically improve the quality and efficacy of operational improvements.

The Blind ‘I’ of DMAIC is Thursday, August 16, at 11:00 Central. Register today for this free process improvement innovation webinar.

    I love this phrase, "the blind eye of DMAIC." It so
    concisely describes a weak link in the
    process that can easily be strengthened with
    idea generation tools like Six Thinking Hats and
    Lateral Thinking.
