"Managers are people who do things right, while leaders are people who do the right thing," says Warren Bennis, Ph.D. in his book "On Becoming a Leader." Champions are leaders. Selecting the right Six Sigma projects and the right people, and leading them to achieve business goals, is vital to the leadership of Champions. This course deals with these important roles of Champions. It also provides Champions with a toolkit to measure and analyze a project thoroughly before it is selected for Six Sigma improvement. The roadmap for selecting Black Belts and other team members needed to build a winning project team is also explored. Champions will learn how to shape and align the dynamics of their sponsored team to the organization's business goals. Finally, the course demonstrates the all-important Champion role of acting as a conduit between project teams and top management.
