    Hello, I work for a Business school and I’m determined to do a six sigma project which will make significant financial benefit. I need guidance and suggestions to choose a project, please help.

    Look up, in right hand corner is Search (change to Articles) for enter (project selection), and you will get LOTS of help with selecting projects.

    1. Improve the food in the cafeteria
    2. Reduce the number of classes students have to take
    3. Use more online courses so you can get rid of professors
    4. Improve the parking situation
    5. Get more money from Alumni to make the sports teams more competitiveWhy would you go to an anonymous online forum to get ideas of how to improve things in your institution? You have no right to do a project there if you have so little understanding of what is important to the place and what the problems and opportunities are. Find out where the money is flowing and what are the larger cost and expense budgets. Gather some customer data. Follow the SS process and decide what is important. Don’t blindly ask a bunch of strangers.

    Darth,
    You don’t find it ironic that someone working in Business School, where they train future managers, can’t figure out how to find a problem in the Business Schools business. How do you train people to manage a business when you don’t know how to figure out what is wrong with your own business?
    Just my opinion.

    Mike:  On the contrary, I, for one, find it perfectly representative of what is being turned out by the business schools.  I don’t blame this on the students, rather the instructors – most of whom have little or no experience in the real world.

    MBBin WI,
    From the original post:
    “….I work for a Business school and …….”
    Maybe a student but is also an employee.
    After going through 2 MBA GM’s that had no clue what cash flow was I really have no general issue with your statement either.
    Regards

    This is not the place for what you need. If you want to “sit” with someone then search out someone locally who can visit the school and learn a lot more than can be done on this site.

    The Miami conference has a deal where you can sit with experts and get advice as part of the conference. Simple enough go to the conference learn a lot and get free advice.

    Great!Anonymous Markiemark, your “Look up in right hand corner” is useful for me. Thanks! I personnaly have to propose around 20 projects per term. It’s not so easy to imagine/offer new ones. But this list will boost my capacity to renew my already pretty owned one.
