Hi, guys. Welcome back. I'm cover MacGyver, and this is your lean six sigma green belt. Congratulations undoing it. You have finished your green boat train. So today we're going to go over some affirmations of the things that you were really good at now because you've been an excellent student.
So I'm not going to tell you anything today.
You don't already know, but we're going to talk about the poor competencies. So the things that you can do now you can lead projects, facilitate tools, perform root cause analysis, visualize data, understand your business drivers and most importantly, role model your culture of Kaisa.
So when we're talking about leading a project, you are now comfortable leading a project. You understand how to develop your project team. You understand the team growth where you go through your forming, storming Norman and performing.
You know that you need to have a charter and a strong relationship with your project sponsors and champions because you work under their authority
and you know the steps that need to be taken to complete a project, you're able to tell the difference between a quick hit and a full domestic. So it defined measure, Analyze, improve and control phase and you have enough confidence in your leadership ability to make a choice. And
this is what we're gonna do and the direction that we're going todo
you are comfortable facilitating using tools. So now you've decided that we're going to you do a domestic project, you know which tools to use and how to facilitate the team using them. So in addition to the team using them, you know how to read the results. You understand what those results tell you
and how you're going to act on them
for your next steps in your project improvement. So you have your able to not only form a team and develop a direction, but actually hands on, lead those teams through getting the work done in your lean six Sigma project.
You are so good at root cause analysis. My hope for you is when you finish this course, you are strongest in root cause analysis because this tool is applicable everywhere. You know as a green belt that if you don't address the root cause of your issues,
those issues we're going to continue to manifest throughout your organization
and you will be doing rework and trying to fix them over and over and over again. You know that you have several tools to do root cause analysis, but really, the important take away is that you want to get to the root of the problem so that you don't continue trying to fix the symptoms. So you are really, really good at it.
You understand that root cause analysis is how you identify
you're factors and your variables in your organization on Do you understand that root cause analysis can be done within or without a project, But it's something that's very vital for you to be good at.
You understand the power and visualising data. You know that everything that you've learned in your green but you can do mathematically. But it is a much more intuitive and powerful story when you draw a picture and you show us the data. So you understand that history grams, you can look at in a
in a multitude of different ways.
But at the end of the day, being able to hone in on what bar is the largest will tell you where you have the most bang for your buck when you're solving problems. You understand that your normal distribution tells you how your data is performing and whether or not you have a skew and a and you understand that you're a graphical analysis.
While I'm like your scatter plots in your HIST o grams,
do drive your your data driven decisions as well as your control chart helps you isolate where you want to do more root, cause analysis or make some data driven decisions that way.
With that, you understand your business drivers. So now you know how to tease out what those business drivers are. You know how to show it in a way that makes clear, intuitive sense, and now you're able to identify what those relationships are. You use regression analysis, toe link together,
your ex and your wise. But even if you don't use regression analysis,
you know how did to develop some hypotheses and to do some little testing in your pilots to say, Yep, if we change X, this happens toe why? And that's really powerful for you as a business practitioner because you are able to then support your organization in making the most impactful decisions.
And finally, and probably most importantly, you're a leader in the culture of kaizen. So if you remember, Kaysen is the Japanese word for good change or continuous improvement, and the culture of kaizen is made up of three parts. Your first part is going to be your customer requirements.
You're always gonna want to push towards what your customers need.
The second part is you're engaged employees. This is why you're so great at running your project teams and working with organism or working with departments to do things like their pdc A. Because you know that solutions driven by employees are sustainable and more effective than any solution from an executive.
And you know the last part of data driven decision making.
You know how to tease out your X and Y variables and how to determine if there's a relationship. And really, at the end of the day, use that information to choose the solution that is going to be most impactful for the objectives set out in your project charter. And with that, you really do leave that culture
of continuous improvement and ongoing good change.
So with that, we went over your core competencies is a green belt, so these are the things that you're gonna be really that you are really good at. And as you continue as, ah, Greenbelt practitioner will be even better at and these were the things that you bring to your organization. So the next time you have a one on one with your boss,
sit down and explain that I am really good at root cause analysis. And I would like to do a root cause analysis
in whatever problem it is, or I have done some training on team leadership and I would really like to lead this team completely independent of any work that you do is a domestic practitioner. These core competencies air going to make you a more savvy business person.
So with that, congratulations,
our next module, we're gonna go over your core tools. So the tools that we've done a lot of, but I want you to feel comfortable saying, Yep. These are my green belt tools, thes air, what I'm going to use when I'm leading my own projects and affecting change in my organization. So I will see you guys there
