Performance Innovation and its associates have developed an educational model for the public school system that consists of several packages. The implementation of each package will largely depend on the results of an assessment to determine the needs of the school district. In general the Lean Six Sigma approach may have the following components:
- Education Model. Provides a framework that promotes alignment of the direction of the district with all the activities in the schools and each classroom
- Strategic plan. Creates a vision and a direction for the district
- Balanced Scorecard. Develops key performance indicators that will be used to run the operations of the district
- Performance Management. A system that ensures deployment of key drivers that are aligned with the balanced scorecard
- Problem solving. A methodology that ensures that all individuals follow a standard approach to problem solving that will drive continuous improvement
- Process Management. A methodology that allows the district to create a process-based environment that provides the foundation for identifying, and managing processes.
- Data Based Instruction. A system that relies on the use of data that will be able to evaluate student performance and establish a means for intervention.
