Process Mapping What It Is and Why You Should Be Doing It

  1. Why you should be doing it 00:33
    • What works for you as a solopreneur, will not work for you as you grow your company. You need to have processes in place.
    • If you know that you are going to scale, you should start working on this now.
  2. Six Sigma and the two different types 02:25
    • Six Sigma is a type of process mapping for project management. You can get a certification for Six Sigma.
    • There are two different types, DMADV and DMAIC.
    • DMADV is used for defining new processes.
    • DMAIC is more for fine tuning existing processes.
  3. David gives an example for using DMADV 04:15
    • David used this method to create processes for his team.
    • DMADV stands for:
      • D — Define process and define goals.
      • M — Measure (and identify) critical-to-quality aspects of your process/product, including risks and production capabilities.
      • A — Analyze to develop process designs and evaluate to select the best design for your process.
      • D — Design process details and optimize your design. Test your design(s).
      • V — Verify the chosen design for your process with pilot-testing. Implement and monitor the new process.
