    We have recently began forming a team of fresh GB’s with the intention of providing a Sigma Style service to ongoing and new projects as well as reviewing current business practices and procedures. The problem we have is with the name of the department .. ‘Sigma’ will scare people and the word ‘consultancy’ is considered bad language here. ..
    So far we have .. Business Analysist Group or Business Improvement Team. Both of which imply a stand alone group which could obstruct our wish to be an integrated part of existing operations  
    Any advise on a less threatening, descriptive title would be greatly appreciated …
    Thanks …

    How  to  introduce  your   workforce   to  the  principles  of  Six  Sigma:
    *Environment: SS Philososphy & key  concepts (first step)
    **2nd  STEP:Introduction to the SS Tools:Problem  Solving,Lean  Thinking,Root  Cause  Analysis,Process  Improvement,Data  Analysis  &  Display,Decison  Making  Aids,Process  Mapping &  Statistical  Tools.
    ***Third  Step:Infrastructure:Organization/Support System//Project  Management/Performance  &  Reward/Metrics /Training.
    After taking  those  steps &  completing  the  SS Startup,your  employees  will  be  then  ready to  take  the  next  step.
    Good  LUCK

    Well – Business Analysist Group (BAG) or Business Improvement Team (BIT) have interesting acronyms.
    Alot of Co’s have found great success with “SWAT” teams – especially if the GB team has good lean expertice.  To survive your team has to provide results FAST – so regardless of the team’s name – it will only survive if it provides results faster than the normal “culture”.
    Get results – get to play again, and again, and again ad infinitum.
    My 2c worth.

    Art,To keep it really simple – call the teams or Belts what ever you want –
    survival will only happen if results are shown that exceed the
    expectations of the Leadership or culture.Regards,Adam

    How about:
    “Business Improvement Assistance Center”
    or “Business Excellence Support Team” (BEST)?

    Thank you all for the replies … I have found that the title carries political issues within this particular business and have decided to waste no more time over it …. We are currently working a a results focused group….
    Thanks again and kindest regards,
