@Mrs.Pagan my advice is probably a bit different. I wouldn’t do anything at all for a couple weeks beyond watching and talking to people in casual one on one conversation. Maybe 2 on 1. The last thing you nesd to do is roll in like a new guru there to save them using a bunch of buzz/Japanese words and throwing around tools that nobody gets but…[Read more]

@datasciencedweeb If you are using a software package check it to see if you can list 100% as a boundary.
@cseider We at least know they did better than the Texas Rangers. That is the interesting thing they play for months to come down to 2 teams that has one winner on a best of 7 games. Whatever happened to participation trophies?

@arivera1 so without anyone answering the certification rates and without stratifying the various certifications by requirements you want to improve them? Are you wanting to improve the rate or the quality of the certification?

@shanedixon What part of the insurance business do you believe is any different that what you have been doing? Pick a software company that has a stats package. Call them and ask for the package that has the tools for insurance companies. Doesn’t exist because we all pretty much run stats around some observed vales and some expected…[Read more]
@snooks98 You need to remember you have accuracy and precision. When you are doing precision I would not worry about agreeing with the clients colors i.e golden samples. You want to be the same type of paint particularly if you have a metallic finish. You will get variation that is not a gage issue from different locations on the sample. I would…[Read more]

@anthony2019 Why would you limit the topic to an SME? There is nothing about SS that makes it unsustainable at an SME or any other place. Sustainability is a function of your organization. That has been documented all over the internet in terms of change management. Actually sustainability is an issue for any initiative to include Lean and SAP.
@BobFair 4 posts and you think you ruffled my feathers? This is like the old Jack Nicolson saying “What do I think about you? I don’t think about you at all.” In roughly 3 hours you doubled your total lifetime posts ever, on iSixSigma. That is looking pretty out of control. Time for you to spend time looking in the mirror checking your f…[Read more]

You have done a total of 2 posts as of this morning October 16, 2019. Basically you joined and logged on, did 2 posts and were…[Read more]

@cmcardle Just to restate a point made earlier, This is a quote from W. Edwards Deming. “A common disease that afflicts management and government administration the world over is the impression that “Our problems are different.” They are different, to be sure, but the principles that will help to improve quality of product and of service are uni…[Read more]

@jfelten775 Currently “ambiguity.” I am a consultant and we have opportunities and projects pretty much globally so there is no real schedule. Conference calls and phone calls can happen any time of the night. Things are winding down in one part of the world and starting up in another. You have to know what is a priority and work the priorities…[Read more]
@carmeliajohn Oil and gas is a very large area. Is there a particular place in that chain you are looking? If you lok at the current issues in oil and gas and the oil and gas recession you have to understand cost is always going to be a huge issue. It is the basic “last man standing” mentality. You are in a commodity business. The market…[Read more]

@sheilaLopez There wasn’t a lot od documentation around Dorian Shanin. Last time I was anywhere near his classes they were asking for a confidentiality type of agreement if you took the class.
One of the people who did document a lot of Shanin’s techniques over the years was Keki Bote. I haven’t read any of Keki’s stuff in a while but I think the…[Read more]
