Adopt A New Management Style: Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management


Is your organization underperforming because of daily crises that keep popping up? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Many organizations are using a new style of management to stop living in a reactive world and start living in a proactive world. It is called Deming-based Lean Six Sigma management. So let’s get started straight now.

What Exactly Is Deming-Based Six Sigma Management?

Traditional management approaches are becoming obsolete  and top level managers are looking for new approaches to grow their organizations. Dr. Gitlow is the synthesizer of “Deming-based Lean Six Sigma Management,” which combines Dr. W. Edwards Deming’s management theory (the System of Profound Knowledge and the 14 Points for Management), the administrative systems of the Japanese Way of Total Quality Control, and the tools and methods of Six Sigma management and Lean manufacturing.

The theory is made up of three parts: the Macro Model, the Micro Model, and the Management Model. All of these, when combined, have the potential to completely shift the culture of an organization from fear-based to joy-based. It creates a culture in which management is responsible for the design and management of the system, and workers are not blamed for system problems in their performance appraisal reviews.

The macro model creates a dashboard that creates an interlocking and cascading system of mission statements, job descriptions with objectives and metrics, and flowcharts for all critical processes. The micro model  improves problematic processes, as viewed through metrics, using the SDSA and PDSA cycles, the Six Sigma DMAIC model, and Lean Manufacturing methodologies. The management model creates a culture in which employees can experience “joy in work” by releasing the power contained in intrinsic motivation. This culture is managed using the administrative systems of the the Japanese Way of Total Quality Control.
