    Our company has tasked me to draft an effectiveness check for all process improvement and project management projects. Effectiveness check is assuring that a project has completed what is has said it would accomplish. Does anyone have any information and guidance? Is this phase industry standard? What should be included in this document?

    It sounds like you want a tollgate process, but it also sounds like you’re not using six sigma. Is this true?
    If you are using six sigma, you may want to search this site for “tollgate”. I use a template that I found on this site and it’s fantastic.

    We are using Six Sigma, but we are NOT a Six Sigma company/organization. The difficulty with using tollgate is that the project manager (Project Management Office) will also use this “effectiveness check”. Any ideas?

    Yeah, I think I understand what you are saying, but it doesn’t make sense.
    For example, when you start a DMAIC project you Define on a piece of paper a charter. It’s written down (https://www.isixsigma.com/library/content/c010218a.asp) what the problem is, who’s involved, how long it’s going to take, what goals you are striving for, what the defect is, etc. All of that is quantifiable.
    When you get to the Control phase, you have documented savings, what the process should look like, what should happen when the process goes out of control, etc. Your PMO team can verify if the project is in control from the control plan and if savings have and are truly being realized.
    Does that make sense, or am I misinterpretting your need? (Which wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened to me :( ).
