More about Project Selection Guide

Description of Project Selection Guide

Lean Six Sigma projects must be able to deliver an impact on a business and its customers efficiently and effectively. The Project Selection Guide helps business leaders and Six Sigma practitioners assess projects and determine quickly if they are good Lean Six Sigma projects to pursue. This assessment is based on their overall impact on the customer, their potential to save time for the business, their potential for cost savings, and how manageable the project is overall.

The Project Selection Guide supports improved decision making by asking respondents to answer a series of questions related to project attractiveness and feasibility on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being “Very Low” and 5 being “Very High”. After answering and scoring each question, the Project Selection Guide template calculates a score. Projects with scores of 75% or higher move forward in the selection process, while projects with scores below 75% should be restructured to address some of the low-scoring areas.
