As a current Green Belt student, I am finding that my peers that have experience in the area tend to take shortcuts. How do I prevent this?
If they are your peer, unless you want to hold them accountable, there isn’t anything you can really do. Focus on your own learning and development, and when an opportunity arises to say something about skipping steps then seize it.
Would the visual process map need to be outlined first (with each step numbered) so it’s clear to responders exactly which step the question(s) is referring to?
Yes, that would be helpful! Usually a SIPOC can help with that. Build the SIPOC then number the steps. People walking the process really appreciate it!
