Designing a new process, or dramatically improving an existing one, is handled best by following a structured process. Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) has a five phase development process with the DMADV acronym. This acronym stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, and Validate, but what does it actually mean with regard to a development project?
The Define Phase is best described as the Development Project Definition. Where the keys to success are:
The Measure Phase is best described as the Requirements Definition. Where the keys to success are:
The Analyze Phase is best described as the Conceptual Design. Where the keys to success are:
The Design Phase is best described as the Detailed Design. Where the keys to success are:

Process Design for Six Sigma requires collaboration among the process stakeholders. Often being face to face for the collaborative meetings is not possible from a logistics, or cost standpoint, which is where on-line Webinars provide the solution.
At EducateVirtually.com we provide the facilitation and coaching required for extremely productive Webinars that accelerate the DFSS process. We have found that communication is enhanced and documentation is more complete using internet based meetings. New processes have been developed and implemented in as little as 12 weeks starting from a clean sheet of paper.
