    I believe it would fall into the general description of “project management” for meeting facilitation. The Six Sigma methodology, when viewed in the five major steps, is something that is accomplished through the use of tools, meetings, input, etc. I don’t believe it falls into the methodology anywhere, although there’s nothing to say your company can’t tack on a project management section to the training!

    I am designing some meeting management training to make rolling out our six sigma efforts more successful. Any suggestions about how we can integrate this with the bigger picture of six sigma processes?



    Hi Jane,

    At my company, we have discovered a very successful strategy to accomplish this. During all Green Belt and Black Belt training programs, we present a module around project management and presentation skills. This will provide them either a refresher (for experienced facilitators), or lessons on how to be more productive during their meetings.

    You should have students in the class practice these skills during the class and in front of others. There is a definite difference between teaching and doing, so try to get them practicing whenever possible.

    You should also think about assigning someone higher in the quality organization to oversee their projects, give them pointers after meetings, etc. It has worked very well here.

    Best of luck to you and your course!
