In this module, you will learn how to effectively measure and analyze performance in Lean Six Sigma projects. This first step comprises a detailed review to identify areas where improvements can make a difference. This module will also dive into consumer feedback to determine their requirements and expectations. After gathering consumer insights, you will learn how to determine critical-to-quality (CTQ) measures and KPIs for monitoring current conditions and future improvement activities.

In this module, you will deep-dive into your organizational processes and the tools to be used for executing process improvements. You will be introduced to a visual representation technique called process mapping, which is used to document and understand the flow of a process from start to finish. The module also discusses how process maps help identify inefficiencies, bottlenecks, and opportunities for improvement. Additionally, you will learn about another tool called SIPOC, which stands for suppliers, inputs, process, outputs, and customers, representing the key elements involved in a process. SIPOC diagrams provide a high-level view of the process and its stakeholders and help to define and understand its boundaries. It also helps identify the critical requirements and potential sources of variation. Here, you will also learn how to develop a comprehensive project charter for your Lean Six Sigma initiatives. Further, you will be introduced to the essential elements of a project charter, its purpose, and its significance in project management. Finally, you will learn about the risk and how to control them and reduce their impact.
