Are You Using Force Multipliers to Maximize the Results from Lean Six Sigma?

Force multipliers help you get more done with less effort. Are you using this one?

“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma Demystified” and QI Macros [software].

“In different arenas, often in the military, they talk about things that are force multipliers: Things that make your force better, faster, more agile, more everything. I want you to consider that the QI Macros is a force multiplier. It can take somebody and make them wildly more successful and productive rapidly. If I had that tool back in the 90s, I’d have gone through the telephone company like with a chainsaw, and maybe the company would not have been acquired and gone into bankruptcy (or almost gone into bankruptcy).

“People often question, but if you’re going to send people to weeks of training and spend thousands of dollars on their training, why don’t you spend a couple hundred bucks and buy them some software that will magnify what they’ve learned and make them really a powerful force for improvement?

“That’s my Improvement Insight for this week: Let’s create a hassle-free America; hassle-free health care. Let’s use the force magnifiers that are out there. Let’s go out and improve something this week.”
