    Yes.
    Need to create a core team with members from all the organisations. To keep numbers workable these will then probably have sub-project teams in each organisation. It can take more management than a standard project but nothing that can’t be worked around.

    Don’t know who stan is but…. Six Sigma is contained in a methodology that is applicable to any organization that has processes.
    What types of organizations where you thinking of?

    What will happen if I say who I work for? But since you asked, I work for one of the premier six sigma consulting companies and are located in the Detroit area. We specialize in cd based training for Lean and Six Sigma. We are proud that we are the best value in the business by providing excellent content at an unbelieveably low price. We are disciples of Dr. Mikel Harry and are proud that Reigle Stewart taught us about starting and running a successful consulting company. We also have a proprietary personality model that can predict success of a Green/Black Belt and Master Black Belt. Most of our talented consultants have at least five years in the field and have trained/coached dozens of Belts. I can’t mention the name in this post but if you are interested please post your email address.

    If we have to apply Six Sigma in Pharmaceutical R&D organization, to reduce the time and cost factor like for example drug development stages.
    In Pharmaceutical Drug Development stages, there are number of stakeholders involve (FDA, Community, Competitors, Financial institutions etc). Where as the stages are;
    1- Basic Research (Time: 2.5 years)
    2- Drug Discovery (Time: 3.0 years)
    3- Pre-Clinical Trials (Time: 1.0 year)
    4- Clinical trails (Time: 6.0 years)
    5- FDA approval & launch (Time: 1.5 years)
    HOW CAN WE REDUCE THE TIME & COST USING 6 SIGMA?

    Stan,
    I should have clarified my response to state that we are one of the premier companies in the Michigan area. We came to that conclusion by doing a survey of employers and clients in the area. The results showed that people feel that we have some of the best training materials on the market, some of the most talented consultants, we are perceived as trusted advisers and our results are second to none. Although I am not at liberty to reveal our name or specific results, suffice it to say we are the top rated consultancy in the greater Michigan area. If you would like more information about our services, please provide a personal contact and we will be glad to send you some of our materials for review. A small refundable retainer is necessary to distinguish between the serious and just the curious. Thank you for your interest.

    ASK YOURSELF WHY IT TAKES SOOOO FRIGGIN LONG????? How many deadends do you run into when doing discovery? How many delays do you have trying to get documentation approved? How many delays do you have signing up patients for clinical trials? How many delays do you have because the drugs for study don’t make it to the Investigators on time? How much money do you give to Investigators for conducting trials who never get a FPV and don’t return the money? How much rework do you do trying to get FDA approvals? How many useless meetings are held which delay the process? I could go on and on. Pharma R&D is a very ripe candidate for Six Sigma if companies and scientists put away their huge egos and discard the stupid idea that “we are different”. If you want to explore further and you are a decision maker, please feel free to contact me offline at drdarth66@aol.com

    My second question is; Why it is thought that Six Sigma is not a sustainable methodology? Like If we achieve 6 sigma level for now but fails to sustain it after next 2 Years or so? Why

    Because most Pharma senior executives have leadership ADHD and are easily distracted. They also get bored and need to do something new. It doesn’t morph from a really interesting approach to doing business to an ingrained way of doing business. There is more involvement than commitment and it goes on and on.

    I work for a CRO, from pre-clinical onwards, and we’re implementing BPI and there are major areas where cost and money can be taken out of the process and we’re in the process of doing this. These varey from basic time/cost reduction, quality improvment projects to quicker better ways of running tests without degrading the results.
    One of the areas we want to work with is running projects with our customers, people like yourself I guess, to help reduce the timescales even further than they are at the moment by improving communication chanels and getting protocols and final reports correct first time rather than the  usual number iterations.
    If you want to discuss further post an email address and I’ll be in contact. (I take this isn’t promotion as I haven’t mentioned a name at all)

    Ron, I am one of the premier Six Sigma Consultants in my cubicle area. I have come to this conclusion by doing a survey of my office supplies in my top left hand drawer. The results showed that these office supplies feel that I am the best at stapling and tacking in my cube, extremely talented, and perceived as best in class as there is no second.

    Ron,Okay, I’ll bite.Tell me who else’s materials your survey participants had for
    comparison. Also, tell us what other consultancies were put in
    front of these survey participants.I don’t believe that you can find a cross section of participants that
    are aware and knowledgeable enough to do what you have
    described. I’ll bet you can’t even name the other SS providers in the metro
    Detroit area, much less Michigan.You appear to be just another SS provider selling crap. I hope you
    don’t teach your clients to do surveys.

    The other Stan answering your initial question was a fake. And that
    Ron guy is selling snake oilThe answer to your question is yes. Assuming that there is a critical
    process that spans the organizations, you would do a stakeholder
    analysis and invite a cross section of process participant to be
    involved in the project. Leadership of both organizations need to
    buy-in and support.

    “disciples of Dr. Mikel Harry and are proud that Reigle Stewart taught
    us about starting and running a successful consulting company”What does it mean to be a disciples of Mikel? Which of his books do
    you consider a Bible?And Reigle never started or ran a successful consulting company, so
    how could he teach you?

    Stan,I don’t know if I am allowed to mention other names but one of the companies we were interested in benchmarking against was Global Productivity Solutions. Much to my surprise we outscored them although it was close. GPS does have a good reputation but our affiliation with Dr. Harry and Reigle but us ahead. Hope that helps clarify.

    Khurram,
    I haven’t read the entire string so this may be redundant to something that has already been answered.
    Different organizations? You mean like Allied Signal with Automotive, Engineered Materials and Aerospace? Maybe like General Electric with Aircraft Engines, Lighting, Power Generation, Appliances, etc? Remember most GE divisions are larger than most companies.
    If you need something indigenous to Pharma because “you are different.” More specifically to R&D because you are “more different.” Take a look at what Timothy Tyson at Valient (I have probably misspelled both his name and the company name – work through it) and see what he has done. He specifically championed the R&D group and he is the CEO. There was some stuff on the iSixSigma Blog site about this.
    Just my opinion.

    Dear ?,
    Not sure what you are referring to??? I read the thread and if you are assuming that I am Ron, you are mistaken on a few counts. First, if you have read some of my posts in the past you will know that I work for Giganto Consulting and not a little firm in Michigan. Secondly, I wouldn’t promote our business on this site. Third, it is a far stretch to call Stan my friend. I do respect his knowledge and that he has done much for the Six Sigma industry but given his personality and nature of his posts, even his Mother has a hard time liking him.

    Darth,Thanks, as always for the support.Speaking of my Mom, you are right she has a hard time liking me,
    and she thinks you and Carnell are only marginally better. But she
    thinks this ? guy is an idiot.Did I let you and Carnell advertise your wares on here? I don’t think
    so. I think this guy is not confident in his manhood. Either that or
    it’s Bobby and in that case he has reason to doubt his manhood.

    I don’t know from “Bobby”.
    Darth posted great advice then said “write me”. Don’t tell me that isn’t making one’s services available. Carnell does the same thing. I happen to think it’s fine. As does the iSS monitor. It’s you – Stan – who selectively decides whose post is acceptable and unacceptable apparently based solely on whether they are your buddy or not. It’s muda – this isn’t your forum so stay out of the monitoring business.

    Dearest ?,I hope that you do recognize that when Mike or I or even Stan offer to take a conversation offline it is not to market services. The time we spend offline helping people is done on a totally gratis basis and the reason we take it offline is to get greater details so we can provide better information or not to clog up the thread. To be honest, the posters on this Forum are not likely to be potential clients of our respective employers. We do it not to sell products or services but to try and help the Forum members and SS community at large. And sometimes we like to have a little fun and enjoy the humor and knowledge of some great people who post here. And just to be clear, many people don’t know it but Stan indeed is a major silent investor in the isixsigma.com global enterprise and is sanctioned by the FTC to intervene and monitor the meanderings of this Forum and its posters. Finally, Stan has no buddies, we just humor him so he doesn’t attack his postal carrier.

    Carnell, Darth, myself and several others like Robert Butler, Andy U, Stevo, HeeBee, … actually will help others for nothing more than they are actually trying to understand. None of us ever offer anything but help and don’t really tell people what we do.
    If you want people to stop trying to monitor this place, start with yourself.

    Heck, Stan is so generous…how generous is he??…that he has offered that Ron guy his own survey showing that people like him better. Plus he has sent Ron some of Robert S’s early materials…the ones with typos and errors…for free. At least that is what he claims but who can believe a guy like Stan.
