PMP備試日誌 (二)

Head First PMP已經看了大部分的篇章,這本書幫助筆者理解了不少新鮮的概念,剛剛看過Amazon裡對此書的口碑和評分都相當高,很多人說就只看這一本書便足夠考取PMP。但願如此,不過筆者還是相信是否做了足夠的題目練習才是關鍵。所以,我從下星期一開始就要試做題目練習了。 Continue reading PMP備試日誌 (二)

筆者從事System Implementation和Process Re-Engineering多年,也是在美國註册的六式碼黑帶(ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt) 。Project Management其實也是黑帶考試的其中一部分,不過並沒有PMP考試的深入。筆者見近年PMP在香港盛行,於是打算今年給自己一個挑戰,看看能否一次通過。同時,筆者亦希望把我的經驗(不論成功或失敗也好)分享給後來者,故撰寫此網誌。 Continue reading PMP備試日誌 (一)

GE Jack Welch Interview: Six Sigma

Jack Welch: I think — I see a Six Sigma company as a company whose management understands that variation is evil. That [knows] serving customers with what they want when they want it is, in fact, the winning game.

Somebody asked me just before this meeting, “Will Six Sigma companies get more valuation in the marketplace?”  I said, “Not unless they produce results.”  You can’t put a slogan up that says, “I’m a Six Sigma company,” and think the [price earnings ratio] is going to move.

令人想起Steve Jobs 的精彩演說 “Are you ready?”

PMI (Project Management Institute)主席及董事總理 Mr. Mark A. Langley 剛於 PMI北美洲全球代表大會上,作出一個命名為 Are you ready? 的演說。 筆者聽畢後,實在按捺不住跟讀者們分享。令清玲全神灌注,並且傾聽再傾聽的原因,是Mark有關下世紀項目管理人才的獨到看法,是從中得到的反省及啟發,亦是他攝人的演說及發問技巧。 Continue reading 令人想起Steve Jobs 的精彩演說 “Are you ready?”

Six Sigma Belts, Executives and Champions – What Does It All Mean?

Six Sigma professionals exist at every level – each with a different role to play. While implementations and roles may vary, here is a basic guide to who does what.

At the project level, there are black belts, master black belts, green belts, yellow belts and white belts. These people conduct projects and implement improvements.

Black Belt: Leads problem-solving projects. Trains and coaches project teams.
Green Belt: Assists with data collection and analysis for Black Belt projects. Leads Green Belt projects or teams.

Master Black Belt: Trains and coaches Black Belts and Green Belts. Functions more at the Six Sigma program level by developing key metrics and the strategic direction. Acts as an organization’s Six Sigma technologist and internal consultant.

Yellow Belt: Participates as a project team member. Reviews process improvements that support the project.

White Belt: Can work on local problem-solving teams that support overall projects, but may not be part of a Six Sigma project team. Understands basic Six Sigma concepts from an awareness perspective.
Every project needs organizational support. Six Sigma executives and champions set the direction for selecting and deploying projects. They ensure, at a high level, that projects succeed, add value and fit within the organizational plan.

Champions: Translate the company’s vision, mission, goals and metrics to create an organizational deployment plan and identify individual projects. Identify resources and remove roadblocks.
Executives: Provide overall alignment by establishing the strategic focus of the Six Sigma program within the context of the organization’s culture and vision.
