Black Belt Tollgate Checklist Interactive App
A Black Belt Tollgate Checklist is one of the tools of the trade of a Six Sigma project manager or practitioner. The Checklist outlines the deliverables for each phase of DMAIC and helps provide guidance on which deliverables and checks must be completed before moving on to the next phase.
Description of the Black Belt Tollgate Checklist
The Black Belt Tollgate Checklist is used at the end of each part of a larger Six Sigma project. It gives project managers and senior leaders a chance to communicate progress on the overarching project to senior leaders as well as team members and show that the project is being carried out in a well planned way.
Updates associated with the Black Belt Tollgate Checklist occur at the end of each phase of a project. These updates allow project managers and Six Sigma practitioners to review findings and share appropriate data points relevant to the next phase of work. This also provides a good opportunity to get feedback from other stakeholders across the operation to help drive better solutions for the next steps in the project. By sharing information in this structured way, sponsors or external influencers can remove obstacles the team is coming up against.
