9780071479431: Six Sigma Business Scorecard
Review:

Excerpts from review by Paul Harmon Praveen Gupta was at Motorola in 1987 when Bill Smith first proposed what has become Six Sigma, and has been working to improve processes ever since. Somewhere along the line Mr. Gupta became focused on the problems of relating corporate goals and profits to process changes. Mr. Gupta describes the history and practices of Six Sigma in a few succinct chapters. He goes on to compare and contrast Six Sigma measures with ISO 9000 measures and the measures used by the US's Baldrige award system. In the end he concludes that, while each contributes to improved processes, they do not tend to establish clear links to corporate goals, and ultimately, to corporate profits. Or, put slightly differently, there is no way to conclude, from lots of specific Six Sigma projects, whether the organization, as a whole is getting better. Next, Gupta considers Kaplan and Norton's Balanced Scorecard system. Balanced Scorecard seeks to shift senior management's attention for financial measures to a more balanced set of measures which include: (1) Financial Measures, (2) Customer-Related Measures, (3) Internal Business Operations Measures, and (4) Learning and Growth Measures. Gupta describes the system and some of its successes. He proceeds, however, to argue that, as a generalization, the Balanced Scorecard has been more successful with senior managers than with operations managers. In other words, Six Sigma focuses on processes, and rather narrowly defined processes at that, and doesn't reach up to link to strategies and goals. Balanced Scorecard starts with the strategies and goals of senior managers and doesn't reach downward to provide direction for managersand employees engaged with lower-level process improvement. Gupta concludes that a better performance measurement system is required, and proposes it. Gupta's solution is the "Six Sigma Business Scorecard." In a nutshell, he attempts to merge the best of the scorecard approach with some Six Sigma measurement concepts. Rather than rely on four sets of measures, Gupta proposes that companies rely on seven, including: Leadership and Profitability Management and Improvement Employees and Innovation Purchasing and Supplier Management Operational Execution Sales and Distribution Service and Growth...I...recommend this book to those concerned with the measurement of corporate performance, with Balanced Scorecard programs, and with Six Sigma programs. Clearly Gupta has thought long and hard about these issues and he provides detailed discussions of many important and difficult issues that those involved in performance management must solve in the years ahead. A company may not adopt Gupta's entire approach, but this book is a valuable sourcebook that describes specific problems and suggests ways of dealing with the shortcomings of existing practices. It will probably inspire others to work on the important problems that Gupta pinpoints.

Readers will learn how to track their improvements in operations and financials-and make critical adjustments if such improvements are not up to expectations-using Six Sigma. Written by an internationally recognized thought leader in business management and a practitioner of process management, Six Sigma, and innovation, this much-needed Second Edition of Six Sigma Business Scorecard delivers an innovative Execution Map allowing you to implement, reap, and quantify the many advantages of Six Sigma.

You'll benefit from:

  • Key performance metrics for companies already using Six Sigma, to determine their sigma level
  • A well-defined measurement system, which builds on the "Balanced Scorecard," for use throughout a corporation
  • The Business Performance Index (BPIn), specifically designed for CEOs, which monitors corporate wellness with ease
  • The Innovation Index, for accelerating innovation
  • The 4P model, for process management

    Six Sigma Business Scorecard will show you how to implement a successful and a measurable Six Sigma program.
