Lean Sigma Search™: Analyze Phase
Determine the Vital Few “X”s
The Analyze phase of our Lean Sigma Search™ value stream process is intended to identify and find the vital few “X”s, those candidates with the right skills and qualities that best correlate to the client’s CTQ requirements.
Measurement System Capability
With our team’s decades of operations experience, we are uniquely qualified to find, assess and recruit the right talent for our clients. Our key principals have held senior-level director, VP, and Lean Six Sigma positions in manufacturing, distribution and service-based Fortune 500 companies. Our principals are Six Sigma Black Belt, Master Black Belt and Lean trained by globally recognized industry leading companies and have real-world, practical experience in their application. This is truly what differentiates us from other firms. We speak the language of our clients and candidates.
Candidate Screening and Analysis
All prospective candidates are contacted to determine their interest and level of qualification for the position. After analyzing the results of this initial screening, we schedule an in-depth interview to assess the candidate in more detail. We assess and compare every aspect of the candidate’s background, skills, values, strengths and weaknesses versus the client’s CTQs, as outlined in the Position Benchmarking Specification. We also probe for candidate alignment with the client’s culture and business philosophy.
Selection of the Vital Few “X”s
Our Lean Sigma Search™ process is specifically designed to cull the vital few from the trivial many. From this process we select no more than three to four candidates for presentation to the client. For each candidate we prepare a written confidential summary of our assessment of the candidate versus the client’s CTQs.
