About this position

Our client is looking for at least two Six Sigma Process Engineers who will process map current-state business processes, evaluate those processes for continuous improvement, mitigate failure modes, design future-state processes, and work with a cross-functional team at headquarters to implement those new and improved processes. 

The two focus areas will be the processes for
  • day-to-day operating of schools and

  • Critically evaluate information gathered from multiple sources, reconcile conflicts, decompose high-level information into details, abstract up from low-level information to a general understanding, and distinguish user requests from the underlying true needs.
  • Implement and lead a change control team to approve user-driven change requests and modify current-state models and documentation.
  • Drive and challenge business units on their assumptions of how they will successfully execute their plans.
  • Elicit and anticipate future-state process requirements of the business at scale and make modifications to the existing documentation, tools, model, and policy manual as required.
  • Determine appropriate Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and manage the accompanying process/tools for collecting the requisite data.
  • Assist in institutionalizing the business processes across the organization and in communicating complex concepts and processes to a variety of audiences using multiple channels—written policy and guidelines, graphical representations, process diagrams, live presentations and other appropriate means.
