    This Six Sigma Project selection course will empower you to take a giant leap forward in improving your business.

    During this course you will learn to recognise multiple areas of opportunity for improvement, Define the opportunities and create a launch plan to achieve those improvements. There is a lot covered in this course, but it really is as easy as 1-2-3.

    Generating high impact projects consists of performing a Project Selection Process (“PSP”) to identify the company’s areas of concern; those areas where significant business problems or opportunities exist. The opportunity analysis is performed through two primary approaches:

    1) by identifying any and all opportunities perceived by the management team and

    2) by identifying specific problems which are preventing the accomplishment of specific goals and objectives of the organization.

    Following this process will allow any business unit manager, from Department Manager through Chief Executive Officer, to identify ALL opportunities for improvement throughout the business unit. The opportunities identified may relate to any and all of the corporate strategies – they needn’t be solely financial savings in nature.

    The methodology of the PSP will create a fertile and highly structured list of projects linked to strategy and projected benefits (usually dollars) that are then organized by area and responsibility. Assisting the PSP methodology is a process for defining projects, assuring they are clearly written with all of the essential information to achieve meaningful results. The PSP is a complete methodology from project ideation to project definition, selection and ongoing management through the business improvement roadmap.
