    For anyone who could provide useful input.
    My company has embarked on a corporate six sigma initiative for about six months now.  For the first wave of BBs, the projects were pre-selected and most of them were too high level to be workable in a 4-6 month time frame.  Some of them were scoped down while others were killed.  We are now at critical juncture where the project pipeline is dry of workable projects that the deployment managers have asked the BBs for assistance in providing leads.
    Question:
    How

    Sorry…hit the post key by accident….Question:What is the best approach to take for investigating potential projects?  My first inclination is to search for “a problem”, then find the process owner, discuss it with him/her and determine whether the six sigma DMAIC proceess applies.Any thoughts would be appreciated.Thanks…frank

    The best approach to drill down from a macro level projects to a real operating level projects would be Quality Function Deployment. However, it also depends what kind of business function you are working in. QFD will work best if you do not have any defined process laid down based on the Business units. However, if you have very distinct processes being laid down there is another toll called “Project selection tool” which will help you to arrive at a very basic level CTQ’s and/ or projects. However, this will for DMAIC kind of approaches. If you are going for a New Product/ Process introduction FMEA would also help.
    Once you have them you can also segregate or prioritize them based on some metrics which may include Potential benefits, Complexity of the problem and Criticality.
    Hope this would help
