Is there any guidelines available for the same like cookbook or something to be used for various specific projects like defect reduction,tat reduction,improving utilization,improving productivity etc?

    deepan,
    I’m curious – what skill set did you tell the nulti-national company you were bringing as a consultant to get this job if you are asking for tools and cookbooks here?  What did you bring to the table – it had to be a very persuasive presentation.

    HACK ALERT!!!!  Another fine example why SS consultants are often on the receiving end of a joke….you are really a joke yourself.  Show some integrity and withdraw from your consulting engagement so you don’t perpetuate your fraud upon an unsuspecting and obviously not too discerning of a client.

    Hello Friends,
    Please show some Compassion. I never said I am a Quality Consultant. I am a business consultant who would like to know more about Quality.
    Thanks and Regards

    Althogh I’m not a consultant anymore – I might consider it if you can get me in touch with the multi-national company.  Sounds like they are VERY willing to hire consultants.

    Then learn at your own expense and not on the client’s dollar or rupee or whatever.

    Sorry Deepan, I have to cast my lot in with Dartha nd the others…
    You win a contract with company x to provide a quality-based consultancy…then you come hear to ask what you should do?!?!?!?
    What you should do is tell your Client that you don’t possess the correct skillset for Process Improvement/Six Sigma consultation, but can still help out with basic business processes.
    Bottom line:   Do as your Client did and hire a Six Sigma Consultant.
    Geezo-peezo.
    PS – This IS constructive criticism.

    It is Dr. Darth to you!!!!  If you want to hear how I really feel, try this out !%#$%^&&^%$#@!.   If you are so sensitive that you are hurt by these comments then maybe you need to rethink your career path.  Reread your post and maybe you can understand why someone might respond as I and others have.

    In your initial post you said, “…I am working for an multinational company as a consultant. I am working on various six sigma projects like defect reduction,TAT reduction. What are all the various tools that can be/should be used for such projects.”  This statement certainly gives the impression you had won a contract whose focus was to be various Six Sigma projects and that you hadn’t a clue as to how to move forward.  The responses you have received indicates other posters to this forum understood your post in this vein.
     
     Today you state, “its out of my own initiative am trying to learn six sigma…client or not even my company is paying me for quality consultancy and we have not won any contract for providing quality based consultancy..”  These two statements give every appearance of contradicting one another. 
     
      If we assume you are not a troll and if we assume your first posting was simply a matter of being unable to express your thoughts clearly and if we assume (please note we now have a string of 3 assumptions) your most recent post is an actual representation of the question you wished to pose then it would appear the question you meant to ask was the following:
     
     Is there some cookbook that can be quickly skimmed so that after perusing a person will be able  to effectively solve complex problems related to “defect reduction,tat reduction,improving utilization,improving productivity, etc?”
     
      The answer is – no there isn’t.

    Dear Deepan,
    Please allow me to give my view of this thread and offer some recommendations. 
    When we read “I am working for an multinational company as a consultant. I am working on various six sigma projects like defect reduction, TAT reduction . . .” we are naturally led to believe that the six sigma projects are the nature of your consulting contract, thus the reaction.  I must admit, a few days ago, my initial reaction to your posting was much the same as Dr. Darth’s.
    We also have a visceral reaction to requests like, “Is there any guidelines available for the same like cookbook or something to be used for various specific projects . . .”  The reason for the reaction is that one of the huge issues we encounter surrounding six sigma deployment and project failures is that people are always looking for the quick and easy approach.  The attitude seems to be one of, “Just follow the steps, and out comes six sigma.”  It doesn’t work that way.  You have to learn the philosophies and concepts, along with the tools.  You must also conduct a rigorous evaluation of the organization (seeking “profound knowledge,” as Dr. Deming would say).  Then one can apply the tools , concepts, methods and such in a way that makes sense for the organization.  Each deployment, each client, each organization within a client is customized to meet their needs.  “Cookbook” approaches, templates and following case studies just will not deliver the full promise of any continual improvement effort.  Learn, adapt, apply, improve.  It is a never-ending process of education, evaluation and application with a specific aim that is anchored by the organization’s vision, values and beliefs.
    In regard to your question about the tools, I admire and encourage your desire to learn.  However, I would get your client’s permission to do any six sigma project work, with their full understanding that you are learning on your own and that you wish to use them as a part of your learning experience.  You may get their permission, but, in my view, I would not recommend doing this as I believe it will discredit your other contracted work with the client. If you want to delight the customer by going the extra mile, I would look for ways to do so within the scope of your contracted work.
    To begin your six sigma learning experience, take a look at the right side of this page and click on the “new to six sigma” link.  Learn the 7 basic QC tools and get to where you fully understand how use those tols and how to analyze data.  Learn which tools are flexible and which ones are not.  Fully understand the nature of team dynamics, how to facilitate teams, how to manage projects, and how to lead and effectively manage culture change.  This is just for starters. 
    Maybe now you have some understanding for the reactions you’ve received from the seasoned warriors on the forum and hopefully you feel you have received some help as well.
    Best of luck,
    Charles H.

    If you must know, a state school in the depths of Florida’s everglades gave Darth his doctorate after his being led through a non-rigorous interdisciplinary program by the father of all things both qualitative and quantitative, the other and seemingly much more revered Dr. D.   
     
    Now with that said, in response to your attempt to poke him in his little round cathode ray tube eye with a sharp stylus, I have to agree with him, you are a waste of time.  
     
    And, also, in fundamental agreement with the other poster who appears to have offended and abraded your too-thin-skinned consulting veneer, after reading your note, I too am considering a career change to consulting.   The motto or slogan on my website will be, “I can offer little, bring on the big bucks.”   Or possibly, “I don’t know what I don’t know, but I know who to ask…. but unfortunately they’re being rude to me right now and won’t tell me…”

    Dr. Donny, to set the record straight, it was a private school in an affluent residential neighborhood bordered by US1 on the East, Sunset Drive on the South, big ole homes on the West and more big ole homes on the North.  Hope that clarifies.

    Actually, I know that area fairly well, and this is even worse than I feared….   We’re being advised on statistically-based quality management programs by a graduate of Miami International University of Art and Design….
     
    But I do get it now… your attention to and preoccupation with rigor comes right out of MIUAD’s website, “…degree programs at Miami International University of Art & Design offer a forum for advanced study and rigorous discourse…”   I suppose rigorous discourse within the program, between program participants, is almost like having a rigorous program.

    BTDT – I like it.  The original post’s initiator and I will both use it on our respective web sites.   There is neither pride nor competition between incompetent consultants.   I sense the beginning of an industry segment support group here, between he and I, unless LeanSigma practitioners have already captured the market segment.

    Dr. Donny,
    Nothing escapes your keen eye and intellect.  Below is a picture of me defending my dissertation on South Beach.  Although he is slightly beyond camera view, Dr. Deming was fascinated by my designs especially those worn by the attractive bi-modaled shaped nubiles which preceded me.

    Dr. Donny,
    I recommend that you and your posting partner pick up a copy of this rigorous treatment of Six Sigma to better prepare you for your consulting career.  How appropriate that Stephen Covey wrote the Forward.

    Dr. D,
    I suspect that, again, you were thwarted in your attempt to post consistently using the complex Ctrl c followed by the equally mystifying Ctrl v  – and blaming it on a temperamental judgmental evil webmaster, shame, shame.

    They didn’t teach us that stuff in grad school.  Maybe I should have taken my training from someone in Chennai.

    Six Sigma for dummies is an appropriate name. Have you spent 5 minutes speaking with DeCarlo? I suppose writing press releases for the Marshall Qualtec consulting firm qualifies you to do Six Sigma considering they were a TQM company.
    It may work for this person. He obviously lacks any integrity.
