Questions

• Changing the culture
The Original Plan
Consistent Quality Assurance

way
Six Sigma (Benchmarking)

requirements (CTQs) of our customers and
stakeholders

reflect these CTQs

systematic way

What went well
Full use of the toolkits has successfully
• Engaged our people
• Made decisions based on fact
• Communicated our objectives to a wider
audience
• Produced a mechanism to standardise QA
• Produced a mechanism to implement
continuous improvement
What we learnt
• Providing an opportunity for people to
influence the change process increases
receptiveness and enthusiasm
• Evidence based decision making ensured we
had the right solutions – right first time
• Listening to people and taking things on board
encouraged them to share experiences
• The systematic review has built a more
confident workforce
Conclusions
In embedding a new culture always remember:
It’s the people that make it
happen.
