Lean Six Sigma deployment: Improving Green Belt productivity

Abstract (Summary)

This project examines factors leading to reduced levels of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt productivity at an anonymous U.S. Navy civilian agency. The Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology is applied to develop an action plan to achieve sustainable improvements to the agency's LSS Green Belt Program.

Although a U.S. Navy civilian organization is studied, the challenges identified in the study are inherent to LSS Green Belt deployments within private sector corporations as well as other local, state and federal government agencies. Key success factors that are critical to the implementation and sustainment of an effective Green Belt program are examined, and improvement recommendations are provided.

This project emphasizes the importance of limiting project scope, maintaining organizational alignment and ensuring Project Sponsor engagement when pursing process improvements led by the part-time Green Belt.
