Lean Six Sigma in Government Agencies

All Government bodies whether they be Federal, State, or Local agencies are able to implement the Six Sigma management procedure in order to improve customer service and increase the government’s effect on the general public. Traditionally, this process was used in the manufacturing sector but works perfectly within the government and similar organizations. Using 6 Sigma, the government is able to experience the same benefits as the manufacturing industry has. The main goal is to reduce the number of defects and variables within processes. In this way, the government can use Six Sigma to successfully improve several aspects as it does in other industries.

Government leaders are looking to industry-proven best practices to improve public systems like education, transportation, social services, waste management, environmental protection, and much more. As a result, governments are beginning to see that implementing lean Six Sigma can produce the results that taxpayers are demanding.

Lean Six Sigma in IT, ITES, BPO and KPO

Explore ways to improve the processes within data warehousing, software design and development, resource planning, and using technology to better implement six sigma projects

Six Sigma has proved quite beneficial for the ITES sector because rather than making direct alterations in the product or service, it concentrates more on making improvements in existing business processes, which automatically improves the quality of final outcome. This is like tackling the root cause that might be creating problems related to quality.

Common quality issues plaguing ITES are reduction in billing errors, timeliness of billing, improving the call completion ratio, improving ARPU (Average revenue per unit), FCR (first call resolution), TAT (turnaround time), reducing customer churn, improving Sales Productivity etc.

Anexas’s approach of giving supreme importance to VOC has helped internal operations of BPO’s and customer contact centers, something that automatically leads to a reduction in the overall cost of operations. This has not affected customer satisfaction, and helped BPO’s to maintain competencies, which has become quite essential considering the increasing competition in the BPO industry.
