I am new to this SIX SIGMA, last week I attended the training and I choose the project title ABSENTEEISM REDUCTION. Kindly guide meNovember 14, 2017 at 7:54 am #201959
Did your training emphasize getting a project sponsor and being sure to attack business pain points? Do you have data on types of absenteeism? I’d say narrow down focus to …. IF you can get a project sponsor or champion.November 14, 2017 at 8:38 am #201960
If you’re looking for a similar project, I’ve downloaded https://www.isixsigma.com/product/new-hire-turnover-project-example/ and thought it was useful for me on my green belt project. It’s more about employees leaving the company but I bet the absenteeism is related turn over because of employee dissatisfaction.November 14, 2017 at 5:14 pm #201961
You’ve chosen a difficult first project so I’d advise you to reconsider. You will have trouble narrowing down the many variables to identify the critical few and you will have even more trouble measuring them. If your HR policy requires a documented excuse for each absenteeism incident at least you’ll have some initial data, although it might not be reliable. More likely all you’ll have is absenteeism rate as a starting point. In either case you’ll have to rely on interviews/surveys to begin root cause analysis and you won’t get reliable answers unless there is trust that they won’t be used for punishment.November 14, 2017 at 6:30 pm #201962

Kindly help me to make cause and effect diagram or Fish Bone diagramNovember 16, 2017 at 5:09 am #201968
Now i think you collected your data ,In order to make cause and effect diagram or Fish Bone diagram you can easily use Excel or Minitab.
I hope this will help you.November 16, 2017 at 1:52 pm #201974
I might be mistaken but I don’t see any data. You have a list of stuff that you could have sat down in a corner and produce3d yourself without doing any “brainstorming” what ever that is supposed to mean.
It sounds like you sat in some classroom, closed your eyes and used the force to pick a problem. I don’t even see a problem. How many days are people allowed to be absent? How many people are in excess of that? if there aren’t any you don’t have a problem. You have people adhering to a system that was set up to define acceptable behavior. If your system says 5 days and nobody exceeds 5 days there is no problem.
This is Six Sigma and it deals with facts and data. If the whole Kumbaya thing is what floats your boat then maybe a activities director on a cruise ship is a better choice.
Whoever is teaching your class should have told you this.
Just my opinion.November 16, 2017 at 2:29 pm #201976
