Strategic planning of Six Sigma projects and Lean initiatives plays a critical role in their success in an organization deploying them. A number of strategic analysis and planning tools, such as Hoshin Kanri, feasibility studies, SWOT and PEST analysis, can be used in support of strategic deployment of improvement projects and to enhance their value and effectiveness. An organization's culture and its inherent structure, lack of resources, and top leadership support sometimes create organizational roadblocks that may result in deployment failures. Six Sigma Black Belts should be able to identify these roadblocks and deal with them effectively. Six Sigma deployment is a revolutionary strategy and may result in significant organizational changes. Black Belts need to proactively anticipate human responses, overcome them, and lead the organizational change. The course discusses the importance of strategic planning and deployment of Six Sigma projects and Lean initiatives and some of the key tools used for this purpose. This course also explores organizational roadblocks and ways to manage them effectively. In addition, the course deals with changes caused by Six Sigma deployment, resistance to it, and strategies Black Belts can apply to manage change. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
