Bambooskies! Hello, we are now at the end of week 2and my my my things have been Bambooming (see what I did there?)…Bad joke. One thing for sure is that I feel a tad bit less stressed than the previous week, however I’m sure that will change soon enough!
This week I feel like I’m starting to get on the right track and ‘skate’ around easier through all of the files that we deal with on a daily basis here at Bamboo. Since I am part of the marketing team, I have also gotten the opportunity to design some things to post which is always exciting when you get over 100 ‘likes’ on something that you made, which also benefits everyone else as well! Week 2 moving on, I have also came to terms with living on Pacific Time when I’m living in Ohio…Crazy I know.
During week 2, I learned about a very important aspect in business called Lean Six Sigma. When Geoff mentioned this approach, I honestly had no idea what he was talking about. After our chat, I decided to learn more about this Six Sigmajigger he mentioned, and this is what I learned.
Lean Six Sigma:
When we talk about getting lean it is usually in regards to losing excess weight and strengthening a new body that is lighter and capable of doing more in an efficient way. The same principle applies when Lean Six Sigma methods are applied to business operations in the area of business management strategies. Simply put, this process is all about cost reduction and increased profits.
“A management approach for problem solving and process improvement based on a combination of the different tools of Six Sigma Manufacturing.”
- Lean focuses on eliminating waste from processes and increasing process speed by focusing on what customers actually consider quality, and working back from that.
Six Sigma Goals
- Six Sigma aims to eliminate process variation and make process improvements based on the customer definition of quality, and by measuring process performance and process change effects.
- Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain
Anyhow, I can’t wait for the next few weeks to come by so I can continue learning and also soon enough get a deck or two sent to me here in Ohio, so I can officially go out into the world and spread the Bamboo pride with an actual board!
Until week 3 guys!
