The Six Sigma Team

The Composition and the Reporting Structure

Any Six Sigma Team usually has 7 types of personnel and a three layer reporting structure. The details of the same are as follows:

  • Layer 1 of the Six Sigma Team: Project Champion and Process Owner

  • Layer 2 of Six the Sigma Team: Project Lead, Finance Certifier, Project Coach

  • Layer 3 of the Six Sigma Team: Project Team Members, Special Knowledge Team

The internal communication of a Six Sigma team is highly informal. This is because every project has different requirements and the working cannot be generalised. However, before the beginning of any project, explicit roles and responsibilities are assigned to every person on the team.

However, team members are also requested to be vigilant and enthusiastic about any new needs that may arise during the execution of the project.
