by Michael Herskovitz

With the increased emphasis within the pharmaceutical industry on business productivity through the integrated application of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) and disciplined project management methodologies, this paper offers an expanded definition of the classical Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) project life cycle by incorporating aspects of PMI's PMBOK® Guide methodology and creating a new life cycle, DMAI2C2, that will assist productivity improvement project teams in creating a project roadmap that leverages the best of both the LSS and PMBOK® Guide methodologies.

"Nearly every great advance in science arises from a crisis in the old theory, through an endeavor to find a way out of the difficulties created. We must examine old ideas, old theories, although they belong to the past, for this is the only way to understand the importance of the new ones and the extent of their validity."

- Albert Einstein
