Hi George,

Both help processes work better. Sigma follows the DMAIC, which is Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control phase. Traditional Project management follows series of steps known as initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling and closing.
Six Sigma concentrates on reducing variance and eliminating the number of defects that a process produces. It relies on statistical analysis and there are many methods to analyze current performance and help identify the root causes of problems.
Traditional Project management is more concerned with getting the project up and running than with fine tuning its performance.
As we all know it a project. Has a specific duration. That’s why I always put into operational plan to validation steps to continually have a sanity check – are we on track, do we need to improve, do we need to pivot.
Do you have a DMAIC project plan template ?

"Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition."
