Six Sigma Methodology:
In our previous discussion, we explored Six Sigma as a holistic approach with a relentless focus on meeting customer needs. It's a transformative methodology that empowers us to shift from a Reactive Approach to Customer Satisfaction (CSAT), which involves addressing defects in our processes, to a Proactive Approach where we create processes that produce fewer or no defects.
Now, let's delve into how Six Sigma benefits Verso in various aspects:
Benefits to Our Business: Understanding the Numbers:
At Verso, we believe that if we can't express what we know in the form of numbers, our grasp of it is limited. To truly control our processes, we need to understand and quantify them. Six Sigma equips us to take charge rather than leaving things to chance.
Benefits to Our Customers: Delivering Quality Care:
Our customers deserve the best, and Six Sigma enables us to provide quality care. It reduces the time required per customer interaction, leading to more pleasant conversations, and ultimately resulting in higher Net Promoter Scores (NPS).
Benefits to Our Employees: Empowering Our Team:
By implementing Six Sigma, we improve the work-life balance of our employees. It reduces stress associated with producing high-performance results and fosters pride in the services we offer at Verso. Personal growth and development become integral parts of their journey, leading to the achievement of remarkable skills.
But how do we achieve these benefits? In the realm of Six Sigma, we employ the DMAIC approach. DMAIC stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control, and it's our systematic method for solidifying the performance metrics we measure.
In the Define Phase: We do the following:
· Gathering Customer Voice (VOC)
· Identifying Y Metric which is the outcome or output that we want.
· Developing the Project Charter to clearly define what we want to address.
· Defining the High-Level Process Map
This is just the beginning of our Six Sigma journey. Stay tuned for more details on how this approach will drive excellence at Verso. We encourage you to like and share your thoughts in the comments section; we value every comment and will respond as necessary.
