Where do we begin? This is often the question when improvement teams must choose a process improvement project from among several worthy candidates. A PICK chart is used to rank projects by considering their level of difficulty (the amount of scarce resources required) and the level of payoff (the improvement gain). The PICK chart was originally developed by Lockheed Martin for organizing process improvement ideas and categorizing them during the Identify and Prioritize Opportunities Phase of a Lean Six Sigma project. The acronym PICK stands for the four possibilities: P
hallenge, and K
ill. This is a visual tool for organizing ideas and making decisions. PICK charts are useful for focusing improvement team discussions and achieving consensus on which are the best solutions to solve a problem. Click here
