Where will quality be in five years given the growth of AI and other technologies? Here’s what I think:



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

“You know, with AI and everything else, you kind of have to ask yourself, “Where will Quality be in 5 years?” There was an article in the Harvard Business Review that said AI is going to be able to do what a Master Black Belt can do, only do it faster, better and cheaper… and that was in Harvard Business Review! You might have to ask yourself “Where are we going to be?”

Lean Six Sigma Used to be Hard

Lean Six Sigma used to be hard. It’s not anymore. Here’s why:

“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma For Hospitals,” QI Macros [software] and “Agile Process Innovation.”

“One of the things when I was growing up in my in my household (this was in the 50s and 60s, you have to understand) we had one phone. It was a rotary dial phone. It was one of those old heavy ones. It wasn’t even plastic; I think it was bakelite or something. There was an extension cord and so I would pull it into my room so I could talk to my girlfriend in high school, right?

“You know, I’ve been around Quality Improvement now for over 30 years. Because of the QI Macros, I see a pattern occur in a lot of companies: They get really excited, they’re going after Six Sigma and they buy a bunch of licenses.

Are you admiring the problems in your company’s performance? Stop Admiring the Problem. Here’s how:

“Hi, I’m Jay Arthur, author of “Lean Six Sigma For Hospitals” and “Agile Process Innovation.”

“I worked with a beverage company, and one of their teams had a room and they were all set up and they were all excited about what they were doing. When I got down to it, all they were doing each week was special cause intervention / correction. Right? It was just firefighting, right? Firefighting is not quality improvement, right?

Getting People Up to Speed In Lean Six Sigma

How do we get people up to speed in Lean Six Sigma? I have found that the traditional approach leaves a lot to be desired. Here’s how I’ve modified the approach to accelerate learning and application.



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

“You know, ever since I got started in the phone company, we were teaching people for weeks at a time. I kept trying to think, “How can I get these people up to speed so that they really embrace Quality?” It took me a while to start to figure out how to collapse the training and everything using QI Macros to get people trained in one day and up to speed and delivering results.
