|Description:||Jump starting a Six Sigma implementation reaps powerful rewards. Yet it can also sew the seeds of challenges in the future. One of the major challenges that often ensues from an aggressive start is referred to as “additive thinking”…the mindset that Six Sigma is practiced by an elite corps of individuals and is, therefore, something placed “on top” of the organizational structure. Moreover, “additive thinking” also leads some people to believe that Six Sigma is added to their existing workload rather than being an integral part of the way people work and think.|
Intelligent integration of Six Sigma can give your implementation a second surge of vitality. The process of integrating MAIC and DFSS into the various work processes at Dow is helping to change the way the chemical giant is improving its world-class standing. In this presentation you’ll see and hear how Six Sigma is redefining the way Dow designs products, plants and information systems. You’ll also get the inside track on how Dow is accelerating the pace of its implementation by integrating Six Sigma among its 50,000 employees around the world.
