Developing More Productive Lean Six Sigma Green Belts with Rapid Action

Lean Six Sigma
A Fortune 500 manufacturer employed an innovative approach in training Lean Six Sigma Green Belts and improved project completion rates to 95% while adding more than $20M in savings to the bottom line over a three-year deployment.

Situation

The Deployment Leader of the organization's Lean Six Sigma initiative was looking for a more reliable platform to support Green Belt training that would produce quick-win results while ensuring readiness for more advanced skills training.

Team Engagement Strategy

All Green Belt candidates were trained with Rapid Action, an "all in one" team engagement toolkit for accelerating results, and required to complete a 60-day Rapid Action project before moving forward into advanced skills training.

Rapid Action Project Charter

How can we standardize order sizes of bulk product in order to improve efficiency in loading trucks, minimize shipping costs and avoid overweight conditions without harming sales and customer satisfaction?

Sample of Solutions Implemented

  • Developed a clear company-wide definition of overweight conditions for use by all plant loading teams.
  • Defined and implemented a standard loading pattern across all sites to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of overweight conditions before a truck leaves the loading dock.
  • Developed a process for identifying and reconfiguring non-standard order quantities at order-entry to prevent all potential overweight situations.
  • Created and delivered training on overweight condition costs and new SOPs for all shipping dock employees
