What motivates a lean six sigma professional? How do they overcome project challenges? We sat down with Anne Jonai Pascual, Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, and asked her experiences. Read on to gain valuable insights from an experienced practitioner in the field. Jonai is the Continuous Improvement Engineer of a premium home appliance manufacturer with operations in the Philippines.
What’s your motivation in completing your project?
I want to be certified in six sigma and that is my ultimate motivation why I push myself to complete the Green Belt project. Doing this project is not very simple although I already have a background from my previous job. Aside from the certification, to contribute to the company objectives is also one of my goals.
What difficulties did you face and how did you overcome it?
My project focused on scrap rate reduction which is not my expertise and this is one of the challenges for completing the project. Personally, I don’t know where to start but through the help of my support team from process and equipment engineering, step by step I learned through them and it helps me a lot to finish my project.
What advice do you give to aspiring Green Belts?
I learned from everyone, especially from my team and the support of my superior. My advice to those who will take the Six Sigma certification is to be passionate and never stop learning if you dreamed of something.
