We believe that quest for efficiency has led business leaders to compromise on creativity. We have been on the receiving end of initiatives such as six-sigma and lean. Most of these certainly helped quality and productivity, BUT at the cost of innovation.
After years of learning from so many industry mentors, government contracts, engineering and business schools, it is a pleasure to give back to the eco system, to share our leaning and experience, and help the next generation of professionals build on our attempts in pursuit of happiness.
Our team is Natural at Innovation, Teacher at Heart, and love to share what we have learned over the years, from so many accomplished individuals and institutions.
We donate 10% of our time to support the local eco systems – mentoring young minds, helping startups, supporting schools, … and 2% of our sales to local charities.Read more...
Yes, we have done it, we believe you can do it as well. And we love to coach.
6σ is aimed at analyzing past data and fixing the problems of yesterday to facilitate continuous improvement.
6σ seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes.
6σ doctrine asserts that:
The term "6σ" comes from statistics and is used in statistical quality control, which evaluates process capability. It essentially denotes scatter in production data from the past.
6σ tool DMAIC
According to industry consultants like Thomas Pyzdek and John Kullmann, companies with fewer than 500 employees are less suited to 6σ implementation, due to necessary support infrastructure. However it contains a large number of tools and techniques that work well in small to mid-size organizations, even if they can’t afford Black Belts.
4π is aimed at adding many forward looking tools, although qualitative, that enable innovation & sustained growth.
4π adds a perspective to innovate the products and services through synergy and alignment of various business elements such as client, products/services, Knowledge/Talent, and Innovation maturity.
4π doctrine would add these assertions:
The term "4π" comes from geometry and it defines angle formed by the surface of a sphere at its center. (360° in 3D). It essentially denotes spread of vision in all direction.
4π Tool DRIVE
4π models and tools are ideally suited for small to mid size companies or agile independent business units of large corporations. Additive nature does make it scalable to all size of organizations, as long as C-level leadership is on board.
This is where, its deployment to R&D unit gains additive value.
