As a LSSGB professional, you want to have comprehensive knowledge about the Six Sigma methods and your dream to work as an LSSBB in managing projects and its quality. Then boom! You are on the right track. Behaviorist suggests that humans should constantly hoard and gather knowledge until they become self-aware. Self-actualization that we are talking about knows the limits.

As a green belt, you know the methods and tools as well as to an extent, you have applied your knowledge in projects. But what you lack is decisiveness and impartial awareness about projects. The more you gain experience about how your senior management carries out the task, takes preliminary and closure steps, steps they take in contingencies, and what tactics they apply when the deadline is near, and the work is half done. In this article, we do not promote half work for sure. But in some cases, projects linger due to the newness of the project and unknown domain.
You can cite examples from failures that big companies have received by Sprintzeal.
One such bright example of miscalculation and client dissatisfaction is the ‘’IBM’s failure in the Payroll system”. The Queensland health department chose IBM to head a project in renovating their outmoded payroll system. IBM quoted to complete this project in around $16 million, but with a sheer miscalculation and erratic leadership, this project stretched to a budget of a staggering $1.25 billion!
Can you imagine the extent, the ill reputation, and no confidence it brought to IBM for their fault? Today IBM is at its decline stage with some of these miscalculated projects. Companies and clients choose the market leader, and if they get pathetic results, then what shall they do?
