      • This is a key area where executive leadership is needed
          • Achieve alignment across the business leadership team
          • Mobilize teams to take focused action
          • Accelerate teams to accomplish the desired results
      *Adapted from The Corporate University Handbook by Mark Allen, Ph.D.; “The Corporate University as a Strategic Lever” by Tom McCarty
    • Compelling Case for Change
      • Economic Conditions
      • Greater World Competition
      • Slowing Improvements
      • Need to add value
      • for the customer

Align Mobilize Accelerate Performance and Quality Improvement
    • Lean Six Sigma as a Strategic Driver
      • Align – (Hoshin Planning)
      • Success is not measured in terms of hours of coursework completed, but rather in terms of achievement of results
      • These results should be driven by and aligned with your organization’s strategic drivers—these could include:
        • Quality of Care
        • Patient Satisfaction
        • Operational Efficiency
      • Leadership can measure success by establishing stretch goals in these categories
    • Traditional View of the Executive Board
      • Executive Boards view Value
        • View Value in terms of dividends and share price appreciation
        • Value is defined in terms of the return a shareholder receives as a result of owning shares in a company
        • Views values as the present value of all future Free Cash Flow
    • The Benefits of Lean Six Sigma
      • What is the Executive Board looking for in the Lean Six Sigma Implementation?
      • Improved Customer Satisfaction
      • Improved Financial Results
      • Improved Return on Investment

    • Linking 3 Key Items Daily Management Corporate Strategy Executive Team Management Team Front Line Leaders Stakeholders Lean Six Sigma Implementation All are controlled by process control systems and measured frequently
    • Align Your Executive Board
      • What can your Executive Team Do?
      • Start with the key drivers (pull from the strategic plan)
      • Support to define key goals and objectives of the organization.
      • Support in the Hoshin Planning Session.
      • Make available any needed resources that will support in becoming successful in the Lean Six Sigma Implementation
      • Assure that all barriers are removed
    • Alignment with Implementation
      • Hoshin Planning – (Strategy Deployment, Policy Deployment)
      • Alignment requires something beyond independent creation of strategies
      • Linking the Corporate Strategy and Lean Six Sigma Transformation
      • Two Key Processes
        • Annual Planning Process (Key summit where the executive team can support by taking an active role)
        • Monthly Hoshin deployment meeting

    • Lean Six Sigma: The New Role of Leadership
      • Here are some example Lean Six Sigma questions
      • These questions follow the DMAIC problem solving methodology
    • Define Tollgate Questions
      • Is the project important to our customers?
      • What is the problem statement? When was the problem first seen, where was it seen, and what is the magnitude?
      • Is the problem measured in terms of Quality, Safety, Cost Efficiency, Patient Experience, or Employee Experience?
      • Does a goal statement exist that defines the results expected to be achieve by the process? Is the goal a SMART goal?
      • Does a financial business case exist, explaining the potential impact in measured in dollars of the project on the business?
      • Is the project? Have constraints been identified?
      • Who are the customers of the project?
      • How will they be involved in the project? How will progress be communicated to them?
      • What kinds of barriers / obstacles will need assistance to be removed?
    • Measure Tollgate Questions
      • Has the team conducted a value-added and or cycle time analysis, identifying area where time and resources are devoted to tasks not critical to the customer?
      • Has the team identified the specific inputs (x), process (x) and output (Y) measures needing to be?
      • Has the team developed clear definitions for each measurement and tested them with others to ensure clarity and consistent interpretation?
      • Has a clear, reasonable choice been made between gathering new data and taking advantage of existing data?
      • Has baseline performance and process capability been established?
    • Analyze Tollgate Questions
      • Has the team examined the process and identified potential bottlenecks, disconnects and redundancies that could contribute to the problem statement?
      • Has the team analyzed data about the process and its performance to help stratify the problem, understand reasons for variation in the process and generate hypothesis as to the root causes of the current process?
      • Has an evaluation been done to determine whether the problem can be solved without a fundamental recreation of the process?
      • Have any new risks to project success been identified?
    • Improve Tollgate Questions
      • What lean or six sigma techniques were used to generate ideas?
      • What screening techniques were used to develop potential solutions?
      • What criteria were used to select a recommended solution or solutions?
      • Do the proposed solutions address all of the identified root causes, or at least the most critical?
      • Were the solutions verified with the Project Sponsor and staff members?
      • Has the proposed solution been documented, including process participants, job descriptions and if applicable, their estimated time commitment to support the process?
      • Has the team been able to identify any additional “Quick Wins”?
    • Control Tollgate Questions
      • Has the team prepared all essential documentation including the Standard Work Instructions, training plan, training matrix, and a control plan?
      • Has the necessary training for process owners / staff members been performed? If not, when will it?
      • Has the solution being effectively implemented? How do we know?
      • Has the financial benefit been approved by the finance team?
      • Has the process been transitioned to the process owner?
      • Has a final storyboard documenting the project work been developed?
      • Is there a best case (best practice) from the project be used by other areas or departments?
    • Lean Six Sigma as a Strategic Driver
      • Accelerate
      • LSS stands apart from other project management techniques in part due to the accelerated time frame that is built into the process improvement initiative.
        • Kaizen (Rapid Improvement Week) = 5 days
        • Green Belt Training = 10 days (over the course of 4 months)
        • E3 Training = 16 hours (over the course of 8 weeks)
      • Success in an accelerated time frame requires that the team members learn while doing—with enough support so that they can reach breakthrough improvements
      • In addition, LSS builds in systematic and clear objectives that are due at each phase of the process.
        • Tollgate Sessions (at Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control)
        • A3 coaching (weekly sessions)
    • Survival Output Time Process Knowledge Goal Baseline Output Time Continuous Improvement Goal Baseline Output Time Lean Six Sigma Breakthrough Goal Baseline Actual Actual Actual Initial improvement typically not sustainable Steady improvement very slow pace Breakthrough improvement with long term sustainability Extinction Industry Excellence Breakthroughs lead to competitive advantage
