Six Sigma Blog: Statement Makes Mission Possible

Statement Makes Mission Possible

A mission statement is critical to the success of a Six Sigma project. The mission of the project should fall under the umbrella of the organization’s mission, which is why a mission statement has to:

  • Be defined in precise terms
  • Be clear and unambiguous
  • Outline the criticality of each problem
  • Outline how the success of the project at hand will bring about a positive change in the organization
  • Define clear-cut, non-overlapping missions for each team
  • Focus on the root cause of each problem
  • Define expect outcome of the project in precise terms
  • Verify that the project at hand will be around for some time, without being subject to changes in the near future
