Jay Arthur's Lean Six Sigma Demystified

Six Sigma trainers across America have been calling about the QI Macros because their clients are asking for more affordable Six Sigma software that works in Excel.

Jay Arthur, author of Lean Six Sigma Demystified and QI Macros for Excel, has spotted new trends driving changes in Six Sigma. The recent recession has made every company more focused on reducing costs and boosting profits. Since Lean Six Sigma can achieve these benefits, more companies have become interested in Lean Six Sigma, but they want to maximize results while minimizing the risks and costs.

Companies are asking: "Isn't there a better way to implement Lean Six Sigma?" The 10-to-20 day "belt" certifications that span several months are too expensive and slow for most companies recovering from the recession. Jay says: "Companies don't need lots of training and belts; they need 'Money Belts' who can find ways to save time and money and add those savings to the bottom line. To make it easier for employees and companies to deploy Six Sigma without the high costs, Jay put up a complete, no-cost, one-day Money Belt video training at http://www.lssmb.com.

Companies are asking: "How soon can I get results?" Most Six Sigma folklore suggests it will take months or years. Jay says: "Five days." Jay has helped teams solve million-dollar problems in anywhere from a few hours to a few days using Lean Six Sigma Demystified.

Companies are turning away from certifying "belts." Healthcare companies are training "improvement advisors" rather than certifying belts because adding certifications to an employee's resume leads to turnover, not improvement. Since the recession, companies would rather hire Six Sigma expertise than spend time training existing employees.

Companies are balking at buying expensive Six Sigma software. Six Sigma trainers across America have been calling about the QI Macros because their clients are asking for more affordable Six Sigma software that works in Excel. The QI Macros are an easy-to-use Excel addin that will do all of the math, graphs and statistics for Six Sigma. Companies can buy 10 copies of the QI Macros for the price of a one copy of most Six Sigma software packages.

Employees balk at learning Six Sigma formulas and statistics. Jay says: "You don't need to electrical engineering to turn on a light switch. So, you don't need to be a statistician to do Six Sigma. Drawing charts and graphs should be as easy as clicking your mouse." The QI Macros four powerful "wizards" demystify data analysis, statistics and charts.
