Lean Six Sigma Can Be Used In Any Business

Got an email from a QI Macros customer who read Lean Six Sigma Demystified and applied it at his hotel in Acapulco. Here’s what he learned and how it applies to healthcare too.



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

“Recently I got an email from a gentleman who had read my book “Lean Six Sigma Demystified.” He was director of training at a hotel down in Acapulco. He started using what I was recommending in there to reduce wait times to check in, to reduce the cycle time to clean a room.

Use Just-In-Time Training to Accelerate Lean Six Sigma Results

One hour, just-in-time trainings get students to results faster than week-long, in-depth trainings. Here’s why:



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

“Back when I got started, we had week-long trainings for teams and team leaders and everything else, and I found that it was a problem. People took this long training and then they decided, “Well, Quality Improvement takes a long time.”

“Over the years I started shifting, and back in the late 90s I went to one-hour, just-in-time trainings. I actually have a little booklet which you can download from our website which is my Agile Lean Six Sigma Money Belt Action Plan.

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).

Are You a Consultant or a Resultant?

Most of the business world deals with consultants. I’d like you to consider becoming a resultant. Here’s why:



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

“Forever, business has hired consultants, and I think the operational word in there sometimes is “CON-sultant,” right?

“When I think of myself, I think of myself as a “resultant.” My job is to help people get results, not to come up with big PowerPoint presentations and keep the meter running for weeks and months and years on projects. No! Let’s get some results!

Is Lean Six Sigma Just an Ukulele?

Have you ever made a judgement and discarded an idea before you realize how valuable it could be? Here’s how it applies to Lean Six Sigma and ukuleles:



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

“This is an ukulele, and most of you probably think, “Well, that’s for Hawaiian music, isn’t it?” I’ll tell you; no, it’s a very versatile instrument. You can do lots with it. If you don’t believe me, go watch Jake Shimabukuro do Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen; it’s on YouTube.

“You know, with this this instrument we can do lots of things.
