  • I’m finishing a project and handing it off to the process owner.

    What are the documentation best practices for handing-off a project to the process owner?

    I have the PPT presentation, but I want to make sure everything I learned is properly handed off and improved upon going forward.

    Any ideas, reminders, tips, templates and such are…[Read more]

  • We use NPS surveys after a service has been delivered.

    We use focus groups when we are developing services.

  • Hi all,

    It’s been a winding path for me to get into process improvement. I’m sure most others are the same way…who thinks they’re going to go to school and then do process improvement for a living?! :)

    @Mike-Carnell: “As you learn more and gain more information the whole understanding can change and therefor the charter and even the problem description can change.”

    @CSeider: “Have a validated primary metric and secondary metrics that also impact the business.”

  • Hi everyone — I’m new here and interested in becoming a top change agent at my company. But I’m the first to admit that I still have a lot to learn. :)

    For example, how do you know whether you wrote a project charter is good or not.

    What if it’s well defined, but not “hard enough” for the green or black belt?

    Is a “sign off” by the p…[Read more]
