The core team
It is observed from empirical studies and expert reviews that every big organization has a core team of quality management. We can call the team members as Operatives. Their sole purpose is to apply and deploy the 10 Six Sigma success factor throughout the organization. The success factors are as follows:
- Strategic planning

- Process management
- Learning and development
- Information analysis
- Supplier and inventory management
- Quality tools
- Customer management
As a LSSGB specialist, you are required to hunt for loopholes pertaining to deficiencies. You then report to your team leader, who is a LSSBB professional, most probably a Q&A head, quality Engineer, or the head of TQM. He then assesses your findings and makes a close study of the trends, and devises the possible methods and tools to act against these shortcomings. You, as his subordinate, work closely in implementing his decisions.
You lead the yellow belt holders who constitute a ratio of 400:1000. Typically you carry out MAIC protocols and generate results through an incentive system. You are an indispensable part of the infrastructure. You are involved in driving continuous process improvement, strategically supporting your seniors, and leading the improvement projects.
Let’s take an example to understand it better. You work as a junior quality engineer at Philips. Philips is trying to penetrate the education industry. Its presence in the unconventional industries like manufacturing Healthcare industry goods like MRI machines, ventilators et cetera, has brought huge names and ripples in the education industry. Philips plans to create a cloud LMS and an on-premise LMS. Your core team is deployed to plan the project! And your boss has assigned you to picture the present scenario and future implications along with stressing areas where Philips can penetrate.
With your team, you started extensive research to find a budding place suiting your company in the education industry. Your research found that in Asia-Pacific and African Continent, you can invest in LMS as there are very few LMS working in these regions. Besides, you have found that you can benchmark methodologies adopted by udemy and KhanAcademy, and Byju. You found that these companies are inaccessibly high priced to consumers of these regions. But their material quality is great and is constantly evolving by adding VFX to animation videos and collaborating with great professors and teachers.
You came with a plan to build a new LMS and will sign MoUs form the governments of these regions to help in integrating Philips LMS solutions in the government-run schools and some private schools also. You reach your boss about the plan and research. He asks you a fundamental question about the quality. And you answered that we would penetrate our VFX engineers, sound engineers in these companies and co-create the quality which we want.
