Benefits Computation And Closure
The last deliverable of the Lean Six Sigma project is Benefits Computation and Closure. But before that, the project is monitored for enough time (2 weeks to 2 months) to ensure that benefits are sustained.
When the Lean Six Sigma Team is satisfied with the results, then the improved process is formally handed over to the process owner.
Financial and non-financial benefits are computed based on actual results, and a formal sign-off from the finance manager and sponsor is obtained. This will be the project closure.
The Lean Six Sigma team celebrates its success; distributes rewards for active team members; and finally, the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Ceremony is undertaken.
