    Hi,my name is Mark. At the moment I’m writing my bachelor thesis about: “Application of Six Sigma in rapid chaging companies”. Could anyone of you support me with input regarding:- how could I define “rapid change companies” (maybe Startups could be one part of that group…) do you know if there are some definition, …
    – is there any existing liturature regading that topic?Do you have any other ideas regarding that topic?
    Please let me know.Thanks in advance, Mark

    Mark,
    Start with a book called “Future Shock” (written in the 60’s, try “Managing at the Speed of Change” these two will help you build context for change and speed. Read “The Deviants Advantage” to help you understand speed and the fact that context doesn’t exist any longer.
    That will give you information about the speed of change. Get Tom Devanes book “Integrating Lean Six Sigma and High Performance Organizations” to help with how the initiatives fit together.
    Just my opinion.
    Good luck

    My working life with several US hard disk companies told me that a rapid changing company is Scenario 1: You have to setup a new line for a new order whithin 12 hours and the P.O. was reached you after your working hours.Where you get the tools, fixtures, equipment, space, etc.? Just use your own imagination if you want to survive in a rapid changing company or cry like a baby.Scenario 2: Planner told you an order number and demanded a new capacity plan from you as IE. You said OK, then you released yourself in the washroom and came back to office 10 minutes later. Before you sit down, another phone call rang in. The same planner told you another new set of order number. Scenario 3: A plant SQE Manager received one email in every 20 seconds during the peak hours from the worldwide business contacts.Scenario 4: Not a single mistake in your qual. build plan is allowed. Scenario 5: 6-9 months product total life cycle is a norm.
