    Great visual depiction of how we should think about solving problems. One suggestion: under “Implement,” where you state “implement without formal project,” I would amend that to say “implement with a standard project management methodology.” While you wouldn’t need to use DMAIC or DFSS or any of the other quality improvement methodologies, you would very much need to follow an approach like PMI’s Initiate, Plan, Execute, Monitor/control, and Close. Otherwise, resources would be misaligned and misdirected, resulting in failure to meet projects’ cost, quality, and time requirements.

    I like the visualization and clear flow = the strength of flowcharts anyway.

    Wonderful tool. Currently completing a thesis on how to implement improvements in a local NPO and i have greatly benefited from this template.

    Excellent visualization. My application in my project has been exactly this for a LSS project . Again this is not a automation, but people tend to forget the very basic principles of flow chart. In this advanced technology time, when people do not use punch cards to write and compile codes like just 20 years back, people now can afford to code in a hurry and compile because they have the luxury of correcting and resubmitting for compilation in minutes. So the basic tools such as flow chart is more or less neglected. So your visualizaiton was a fresh breath in air. Always a great comprehension tool.

    Great chart. I can’t help but think that there should be a step that involves validation of the idea, looking at demand, competitive analysis and similar would also be important prior to development. I wouldn’t assume validation prior to problem solving.
