I do analysis in a logistics environment almost daily. I scrutinise, monitor and suggest improvements in my 3PL providers operation all the time, but the thought dawned on me the other day; Am I any good at it? Ive undertaken some in-house Introduction Courses several years ago in 6 Sigma, TQM and Lean Management etc. at a previous Company that is totally **** on Lean Management, and although I tried to take in as much as possible, I never really used it in anger. My main forte is in Inventory and Supply Chain Management My role now at my present company is evolving into more of a Lean/Quality role, and to be brutally honest, Im not sure Im doing it right. I compile the stats, make up the pretty graphs and then have a stab at interpreting what the results, to which I then offer solutions. Its pretty easy the last few years as the company which provides our distribution operation is really inefficient, so I hit the quick fixes (relatively easy) but Im now finding my analysis is being used for larger long-term/huge Capex projects. So my question is; what courses should I be looking at to stop blagging and be confident in my abilities? Should be doing some type of Kaizen course, or an in-depth TQM? The more I read up about 6 Sigma, I dont believe it will be beneficial to our small-ish operation. Can anyone offer an advice on direction, courses, methodology, etc. Also is PRINCE2 any good? I wouldnt mind moving into project management in Logistics too, but I dont want to waste time and cash on something useless.
