Program Summary

Change Management can arguably be one of the most important aspects of a Lean Six-Sigma process improvement event or of any event that includes numerous or multiple stake-holders.  Events or projects that follow the DMAIC, or similar process lifecycle, will ultimately be changing something to implement the Improvement and will require resources to be spent on change management.  Additionally, the more stakeholders that are involved with an event, the greater the need for a change management strategy or process to accomplish stakeholder management and ultimately, the event objectives.  Unfortunately, Change Management for LSS events is often an after-thought, not thoroughly formalized, or adequately e-sourced.  A quality expert may be exceptionally qualified to conduct a process improvement event in every way, but fail in implementing any improvement because of inadequate attention to change management or the change management process.
This presentation explains one simple change management strategy (or methodology) that can be followed to improve the chances of an event’s success.  This strategy is fully explained and an example is provided to demonstrate its use.  Though the strategy is a formulation created by the presenter (Rob Briede) it is proven because it ties to one of the basic elements of project management recognized by PMI or the Project Management Institute.  The change management strategy is preceded with a discussion of change management, its importance and its elements.  Additionally, helpful hints and other potential strategies are discussed.
