For whom the bell tolls ? Finance lessons for young mothers-in-law: performance measurement and analysis with the Lean 6 Sigma.

This time my mother-in-law wanted to know more about Lean 6 Sigma. Continuing in her favourite sport example, the Marathon:

  • I informed her of the basics of statistics (no more than the coin toss…)
  • I explained the bell curve and for whom it tolls
  • I proposed the two best known methods of problem solving (I imagine which one her preference falls on but trying doesn’t hurt).
  • in the remote case that she opts for DMAIC, I’ve drawn her attention to the Control phase.
