Why learn the DMAIC Process? 

DMAIC is a simple performance improvement model made to solve complex problems. DMAIC stands for Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control. These are the 5 steps that guide you from defining a clear problem statement to implementing a substantiated solution.

The DMAIC structure can be applied in virtually any improvement initiative, ranging from a 5-day Kaizen event to a 5-week problem-solving project, or even a 5-month organizationwide improvement programme. It is a versatile improvement method that is not bound to any specific magnitude or timeframe.

Most often you will see the DMAIC model employed within multidisciplinary teams, as it is a method that encourages analysing situations from multiple angles and perspectives so as to provide the most thorough and effective solution possible.

Its structured step-by-step approach allows for clear and concise communication, both within the team and in reporting to management and other stakeholders. Each step guides you to substantiate your conclusions with sound analysis and reasoning, ensuring a high professional standard in both your project management and decisionmaking.

In short, the DMAIC approach was founded on the beliefs that complex problems do not always demand complex solutions, and that structure and creativity are best combined rather than kept separate.
