ASQ-LED-DI Disease and How to Cure It Webinar

May 10, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

“My name is Mr. Engineer and I have the D-I disease. I have a problem and within 5 minutes have defined it and decided how to solve it, then spend the next 6 months trying to implement a solution and band aiding the symptoms to get the job done and the worst part is I get emotionally tied to a bad solution.”

The D (Define)-I (Implement) disease is a terrible disease afflicting so many of us who pride ourselves on being great problem solvers. The result is the Plant is running us as opposed to us running the Plant. The Plant never runs out of problems for us to solve because we rarely actually solve the problem, we either treat a symptom or create a work around. The Plant loves us D-I Leaders because it works us to death. This presentation with multiple case studies from actual implementations will show how to cure the D-I disease by adding the M-A & C back into the DMAIC process. The lessons learned & best practices will come from a wide range of implementations from large and small organizations including; Newport News Shipbuilding, U.S. Navy, TESCO Corporation, Busch LLC, Bauer Compressors, Alcoa Power and Propulsion, MBI, Inc., and Ball Metal.
