    it has been suggested, argued that Six Sigma is an entirely new way to manage an organization. In the light of such comments can anyone advise me on some methodologies and tools that are HR based that can be used to compliment the Six Sigma thinking.

    There are a couple of previous forum threads dealing with applying Six Sigma to HR. You may want to look down at “where” in the following list: https://www.isixsigma.com/library/content/c010204a.asp

    Hi John
    In Six Sigma there are only two Methdologies DMAIC & DMADV. The former is used for enhancing the Quality of existing Process / Products while the latter for Developing New Products / Processes. These two Methodologies are supported by a variety of Statistical as well as Non Statistical Tools & Techniques. FMEA, Fishbone Analysis (a.k.a Ishikawa Diagram), QFD are examples of Non Statistical Tools while Process Capability studies, Regression Analysis, Correlation Analysis etc etc are examples of Statistical Tools.
    Hence as you can see there are no tools which can be specific to a function / department but the Tools of Six Sigma are applicable for all types of Industries which is why it has gained so much of popularity worldwide.
    From an HR perspective what you need to do is help the Six Sigma Core team in institutionalising the Six Sigma way of thinking within your Organisation. Ask any Six Sigma expert and she / he will tell you that the biggest hurdle that they face is getting people to accept this “CHANGE”
    Cheers

    Hi everyone,I’m not agree with the role definition of HR in Six Sigma. I think each agent has to be a change agent not only a statitics specialist. Each project could be a big improvement in a company but if you don’t have the buyin of the employees impacted, your project can be a failure! That’s why the change management is very important in the Six Sigma project.Some improvement has to be done in HR, where the concept of customer is very important (employees).
    Some processes like hire, transfers, termination (administrative)… as to be review for the most companies.
