A Tollgate Review will help you determine if the goals in a Quck Win Project have been completed. A Six Sigma Quick Win Tollgate Review is like a checkpoint at which the various team members meet with a project Champion and determine whether the work has been performed as indicated in the project plan and whether the objectives mentioned have been achieved.
Below is a -snippet- of the Six Sigma Quick Win Tollgate Review:
Has the “Project Charter” been developed?
(The following questions should help determine the answer)?
- Business Case: What are the compelling business reasons for embarking on this project? Is the project linked to key business goals and objectives?
- What key business process output measure(s) will the project leverage and how?
- What are the rough order estimates on cost savings/opportunities on this project
- Problem Statement (Starting Line): What specifically is the problem?
- Where does it occur?
- When does it occur?
- What is its extent?
Goal Statement (Finish Line):
- What is the goal or target for the improvement team’s project?
- Do the problem and goal statements meet the SMART criteria (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound)?
- Has anyone else (internal or external to the organization) attempted to solve this problem or a similar one before? If so, what knowledge can be leveraged from these previous efforts?
- How will the project team and the organization measure complete success for this project?
- What are the physical boundaries of the scope?
- What is in bounds and what is not?
- How does the project manager ensure against scope creep?
- Is the project scope manageable? What constraints exist that might impact the team?
- When was the project start date?
- When is the estimated completion date?
- Is the project currently on schedule according to the plan?
- Has a project plan with milestones been developed?
- How will variation in the actual durations of each activity be dealt with to ensure that the expected project completion date is met?
