|I worked in manufacturing for 36 years as a Sr Process Engineer and was trained in DMAIC methodology, Six Sigma tools to define, measure, analyze, improve, and control to improve processes in a disciplined method. Maybe our Congress needs a certified Six Sigma expert to help guide Congress in creating and passing bills to solve our countries problems with a disciplined approach. This approach has worked for years in manufacturing to define, measure, analyze, improve, and control processes to eliminate variation, inefficiency, waste, and lack of control that affect change. We all know our Congress is inefficient, ineffective, wasteful, and lacks team work. We are all on the same team. Maybe Congress needs to adopt the team work approach Forming, Storming, and Norming. Forming, Storming, and Norming are stages of psychological development a team encounters while working on a project. Teams pass through each stage to become acquainted, face challenges, tackle problems, find solutions, and eventually focus on achieving a common goal. Maybe Congress needs to address and redefine the process they go about doing their jobs we Americans voted them in Congress to do. We did not vote them in to be inefficient and ineffective and waste taxpayer dollars. We as Americans deserve better and if they worked for a Corporation they probably would be fired. This could happen the next election if Americans are tired of “do nothing” Congress. Our leaders need to change and stop the wastefulness, and Get things Done to improve our lives and the economy.
Here's an overview of how Congress could apply the DMAIC methodology to improve its processes and drive change:
By applying the DMAIC methodology, Congress could identify the root cause of issues in its processes, implement solutions to address them, and sustain the improvements over time. This approach would help Congress drive change and improve its effectiveness and efficiency in passing legislation.
What do you America think?
