What Lean Six Sigma Champions Need to Know

Champions play several important roles in helping Lean Six Sigma teams successfully solve problems and complete projects.  Key responsibilities of champions are:

  • Mentor, support and coach
  • Remove obstacles
  • Verify business alignment
  • Keep projects focused
  • Ensure timely completion
  • Drive quantifiable results

However, to be effective there needs to be a supporting infrastructure that addresses:

  • Communications
  • Training
  • Project Management
  • Metrics
  • Best Practices
  • Roll-Out

Just as a champion must help teams overcome obstacles and roadblocks, the Role of a Lean Six Sigma Champion is filled with pitfalls. Champions can better prepare themselves to be successful in their role if they are aware of and recognize common pitfalls. Some of the most common pitfalls are:

  • Getting intimately involved in activities of the team
  • Not making time for the team in a timely manner
  • Assuming rather than getting the facts
  • Accepting "We've already tried that."
  • Not leveraging the work of others
  • Allowing bureaucracy to creep into the process
  • Using intangible measures, not bottom line results
