Lean Six Sigma Bursts: E103: How to gather data before starting an improvement project

In a recent class I taught, we were discussing the Project Charter, which asks you to fill in the baseline data for the metric you're trying to improve.

I explain how you need to be persistent to find data, and not to start a project if you don't have any data, especially for a training class, or for your first project.

I also answer a student question about how many samples you need for the baseline. You can also listen to a previous podcast (episode #25) about why we need 30 data points: https://spotifyanchor-web.app.link/e/VAoKfXBelJb
