What does golfing have to do with Six Sigma?

Here at BPI, we are always looking for ways to make Lean and Six Sigma concepts easier to understand for those getting started.We will be creating a series of videos with examples that might resonate with you on basic terms and concepts. Feel free to use these videos in your training class, or send them to your attendees to help reinforce concepts you’ve already taught or coached.

The following video puts Six Sigma in terms of golfing, where the distance of the tee shot is being measured, compared to the limits of the golf hole.

The process of teeing off can be evaluated in Six Sigma terms based on how likely the shot will land between two sand traps.

We also explain how to connect these concepts back to the real world, such as in business with a forecasting budget process, with limits of +/- 10%.

Are there good examples you’ve heard, that you’d like us to capture in animation format? Let us know in the comments below…
