Hello Professor and class the favorite tool that I have studied in this course would be the six-sigma program. Six Sigma is a set of tools and techniques that are designed to improve business processes which will result in a better product or service. What I like most about the program is that it helps  improve the customer experience, by eliminating defeats in the process. I like how the program  breaks down the different assets and gives you steps on how to go about fixing it. Six Sigma is broken down into DMAIC which means define, measure, analysis, improvement, and control. I plan to use the six sigma program to help increase our customer service. I want to use the tool to maximize the benefits for customers. When I took over this new position I quickly learned that they are not up to date with taking care of the customers. They are just for getting the job done and not caring. I want to install the value of the needs of their customers and the drivers of sales. If I am able to get this the working I would be able to show the customers that they are important and we need them just like they need us. I want our customers to feel like they are valued, and not have the attitude where will feel we can just get new customers. This course has shown me different ways that I can use to help me implement the goals that I want to achieve. It has shown me what actions should be taken when I am trying to enforce something. When I am working on different things, I keep what Mr. Jack said in mind. “Why do we need innovation? Why do we need continuous improvement? There’s very little room for the status quo in any company because your competitors are about three hours from a product to nail you.” (Jack Welch)

RE: Week 10 DiscussionCOLLAPSE
Hello Class,
What are your favorite tools that you studied in this course?  What do you like most about them?  When answering this questions, consider: Ease of implementation, application to your particular organization, receptivity by your colleagues, etc.
I would have to say, Value Stream Mapping, as I found myself reverting back to the value stream map throughout this course to aide me in my discussion and assignment submissions.  I appreciate that it gives a visual of the process, which in my opinion, caters to a wider audience.  In my organization, I understand that people have their own ways of collaborating, communicating and understanding.  From my experience, the majority of key stakeholders are very receptive to visuals because help connect the dots and provide even further clarification.  Value Stream Maps are also easy to implement in my organization because we collaborate quite frequently across multiple organizations and we generally request a perspective of their respective end to end experience.  It would be more efficient and very eye opening to create an initial value stream map and have each organization build on that value stream map to develop one single birds eye view for us to evaluate.
How have you applied, or how will you apply, these tools?  If applicable, what results were achieved?
We’re always looking ways to improve processes.  While I created my first value stream map in this class, I have grown a profound appreciation for the tool.  I have not achieved any results yet, as I have not formally introduced or applied the tool at work, however, my VSM on improving the pre-order iconic device process has given me new insight into additional gaps in the process that I will be sharing on the next project call.  As we look into planning our 2023 action plan, I will leverage the VSM tool to map out each process along the way to plan our mitigation tactics.
What impact has this course had on your professional performance?
I have a great deal of operations experience so I initially thought this class was going to serve as a great refresher, however, this course helped me understand LEAN and SIX SIGMA more thoroughly and the importance of Design thinking.  We have shifted our operations from your typical project management style to a more agile workplace so I was surprised and relieved that we were able to apply and leverage some of the tools and resources to our discussions and assignments, giving us that first-hand experience.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
