Practicing Due Diligence: Six Sigma Progress Check-In

When starting your certification course, it’s important to keep on top of how you’re doing. By ensuring you make regular check-ups on your progress, you’ll understand the positives and the negatives with ease. Moreover, keeping track of your progression also allows you to course-correct as and when you discover a problem. Is your lack of experience holding you back? Are specific areas affecting your Six Sigma Success? Let us help you take hold of your training and realign your compass. That way, you’ll be moving in the right direction. Here are a few ways you can see how you’re managing your course material, and how to act on areas for improvement.


Ask Your Trainer

Who else can tell you how you’re getting on than your trainer? Think of it as a one-to-one mentoring meeting to discuss your future. Experienced Six Sigma trainers all tend to possess Master Black Belt certification and have a lot to offer in the way of advice. Naturally, they will monitor your progress and improvement as you go along and will address issues as they arise. Moreover, they can point out areas where your results are falling and make suggestions for improvements. Don’t disregard their advice. It could be the difference between Six Sigma success and a cab ride to nowhere. Ask your trainer about your progress. It’s what they’re there for!


Use What You’ve Learned: Apply Six Sigma

If you want to gain a clearer understanding and a better picture of your training progress, why not apply what you’ve already learned? Even something as simple as brainstorming your key subject areas can shed light on which ones you’re struggling with. You’re bound to absorb more information on some subjects than others, but recognizing the areas in which you’re lacking will help you improve. The more you know, the more you grow, after all. Furthermore, you can then apply additional Six Sigma tools to mine the problem deeper.

Using techniques like affinity diagrams and root cause analysis, you can identify what’s holding you back and alter your behavior to improve results. Furthermore, use Lean to search for wasteful practices for you to eliminate. Human error is one of the biggest waste issues, which is why a little process improvement can go a long way to helping your learning experience along. Similarly, by adopting a Kaizen attitude of continuous improvement, you’re sure to see positive changes in your training. Kaizen demands you put in the maximum effort. Condition yourself to stop wasting time and start taking action.


Look at Your Mistakes

When you look at your mistakes, are there any patterns that start to appear? Why do you think you keep struggling with certain tasks? What’s holding you back? By scrutinizing your mistakes down to the minutest detail, you can learn a lot about your development. This can tell you a lot about the reasons behind your mistakes. Use root cause analysis to delve deeper into these issues so you can take corrective action. If you can’t learn from your mistakes, after all, then you won’t get very far.
