The ‘Big Why’

With Six Sigma, there is a tendency sometimes to get caught up in the tools, the training, the certification, the statistics….

There are numerous examples to show how this approach can be translated into results that have a positive impact on the patients coming through the system everyday, and for the professionals caring for those patients.

Effectively translating the organizational vision or mission into specific metrics is crucial to creating organizational alignment and driving performance across the enterprise. Frequent and ongoing communication will help to ensure that everyone knows how his or her job connects back to the overall goals – whether they work in nursing, housekeeping, the pharmacy or any other area.
