    Does anyone have any thoughts on which tools should be emphasized (initially) to GB’s. I know specific tools are for specific jobs but I am thinking that in order for a GB to get the biggest bang for the buck when starting out, then they should have ?  in their tool box.
    Thanks!

    The tools we teach in Green Belt training are: Process Mapping, Visual Tools (Histograms, Pareto Charts, Run Charts), SPC, Measurement Systems Evaluations, FMEA and Process Capability.

    I think alot of that depends on the individual talents and strengths of your GB’s.  Some individuals may be able to handle more complex tools and techniques better than others.. I ‘ve stratified all of my GB’s into classic A, B & C level players and obviously rely on my A players the most and give them the more in-depth and complicated tools. Let your instincts and GB’s previous performance be your guide.
    Hope this helps…

    Dear China,
    to get a good start, you will need to texts.
    1.  The Six Sigma Handbook by Tom Pyzdek.
    2. The Six Sigma Way…..forgot authors name.
    Put them both together and you should have a good strong first step.
     
    Hope this helps…….

    Whether I agree with our management or not, the only thing different between our BBs & GBs is the Define phase of DMAIC.  BBs spend time defining and scoping the project, while a GB is given an already scoped project and start right into the MAIC phases.

    I agree with Matt. The D is for the BBs to do. GBs start with MAIC.

    Tom,
    Being relatively new to the whole process, I view process mapping as the best tool you can teach new Green Belts.  Having a detailed and truly accurate process map helps so much in most of the phases.

    Tom,
    I’ve been a Green Belt since last October. I’ve wondered the same thing.
    I’ve been trying to focus upon learning the details of any process flow that I would be analyzing for future projects. For now, I can worry more about that, and then take ideas to my Black Belt to determine which tools to use. (I hope you have a Black Belt nearby.)
    Meanwhile, I like to use a pocket-size book called, “The Memory Jogger”. It is a quick reference for a number of LSS tools. You can check them out at the following web site:
