Lean & Six Sigma at eBay
If you're in Vancouver BC and looking for interesting Lean work at eBay, check out this post from Shmula.com's Pete Abilla.
Some of his unofficial qualifications:
- You can effectively answer the following: what is the impact on Throughput as WIP increases and Cycle Time remains unchanged? What are some Lean approaches to this scenario?
- You can explain why variation sucks, with examples â€” both qualitative and quantitative. How does the DMAIC framework approach variation?
- “Upstream changes; downstream impact” â€” what does that mean and general approaches to solving that problem â€” with examples.
- You can explain the difference between poke-yoke and mistake-proofing (trick question) and give examples from everyday life of poke-yoke.
You might cheat on the interview and look here for examples of Everyday Lean.
