Joint Munitions Command headquarters finalizing preparations for Yellow Belt Certifications
December 23, 2008
ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. -- The Joint Munitions Command headquarters Lean Six Sigma Office will recognize Subject Matter Experts with a yellow belt certificate and coin for the contributions they make in bringing about the successful completion of a JMC headquarters green belt or black belt project. This is being implemented to recognize SME's who go "above and beyond" simply going to some of the team meetings, and therefore play a vital role in the success of GB/BB projects.
A yellow belt nomination form has been loaded on the JMC Extranet Lean Six
Sigma web site (under "C.I Tools" on the "Templates and Guides" dropdown list).
For any JMC headquarters green belt or black belt project with a control tollgate approved in Power Steering, the project sponsor, with assistance from the project's lead green belt or black belt as needed, can use this form to nominate one or more project SME's, one SME per form.
The form includes instructions for filling out and submitting it. Once the form is completed and processed and the certificate and coin are prepared, presentation to the yellow belt will be scheduled, ex. at a JMC headquarters Town Hall meeting. A Swimlane Process Map of the certification process has also been loaded in the Templates and Guides list.
LSS Master Black Belt Steve Tutt is coordinating the implementation of this process.
