What is Lean Six Sigma [LSS] Organization ?

With reference to my previous blog on Lean Six Sigma [http://wp.me/p4umAl-6R], I am continuing with the below topic of  LSS implementation organization.

During the Lean Six Sigma[LSS] initiative, the organization need to have a formal structure for its deployment. This formal structure includes the roles of; Green Belts, Black Belts, Master Black Belts and, also Champions or Sponsors.

Following chart denotes the LSS organization, roles and the resources size for different roles.

Champion or Sponsor
  • The Champion or Sponsor leads the Lean Six Sigma effort within the entire organization.
  • This role is responsible for setting up the overall quality strategy.
  • The Champion is often a senior-level staff member who can work easily with the Master Black Belts, Black Belts, and Green Belts in setting the overall direction for project execution.
