DMADV, Concepts & Stategies

Autor: Arthur Accioly 2014


The DMADV Improvement methodology is focused on designing new processes or redesigning existing processes. This is a breakthrough approach that can move an organization to a new level of performance. Whereas, the DMAIC Improvement methodology is focused on problem solving or incrementally improving existing processes. Since DMADV projects are broader then DMAIC, they generally require more cross functional resources/time and are considered higher risk/higher reward projects. Key differences between the DMAIC problem solving improvement method and the DMADV process (re-)design improvement method will be identified throughout this course. The DMADV process (re-)design improvement method(Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Validate) can also be referred to as DFSS: Design for Six Sigma.

People, in a specific level, and organizations, in a general level, participate in deals,negotiations, global transactions, and have different stories, beliefs, customs, values, that are part of distinct cultures, but establish understanding and mutual respect in their social and commercial relations.

Business globalization has always created opportunities for skilled professionals to develop careers in multinational subsidiaries around the globe. In essence, the profile and the goals of this professional haven’t changed much since the 17th century, when the British workers of the East India Company crossed the oceans in search for better pay, quick professional progress and a nice retirement in their country of origin. In exchange, they offered their loyalty to the corporative culture of the head office. But this professional profile’s days are counted. The ascension to strategic positions by the Y generation, those who were born after 1983, is changing paradigms and forces companies to rebuild their human resource policies.

For the Chinese, negotiating is an art. It is worth going deep into the cultural matters and having in mind that the Chinese market’s achievement is a long-term thought out project. With a millennial civilization, and a 5 thousand year culture, through which they have developed practices, customs and rites that are tied to their people, to succeed in business and relations with the Chinese, the local culture must not ignored. Studying the economics, a little of the country’s history and geography can be of great value to the success of your business with them. Negotiators who aren’t able to win over the Chinese and intend only to make business, without mentioning their personal life or engaging in informal meetings with the Chinese, will, most likely, not close their deals. It is so because Chinese value business as an agreement that involves friendship.
