Lean Sigma Search™ Overview
Search excellence starts with the sound foundation of a well-defined and consistent search methodology. Our Lean Sigma Search™ value stream process methodology incorporates a unique Lean Six Sigma approach to filling our clients’ staffing needs.

An important foundation of Lean Six Sigma methodology is the concept of waste and defect elimination. Lean Six Sigma defines a defect in terms of meeting the specifications, expectations and requirements of the customer. What is a defect with regard to the executive search process? Presenting unqualified candidates, candidates with missing skill sets and candidates who don’t fit the corporate culture and chemistry of the client are just some examples of waste and defects that can result from a poor search process.

At The Avery Point Group we practice what we preach when it comes to Lean and Six Sigma. Our experience has shown us the importance of incorporating the voice of the client (VOC) at each critical phase in the value stream placement process. We take great care in defining and characterizing the client’s critical to quality (CTQs) requirements, up front, to ensure successful screening and placement of candidates, thus avoiding waste and defects that can cost a client time, money, and worse yet, a poor placement.

Each phase of our Lean Sigma Search™ value stream process is designed to move the process along efficiently and effectively through our executive search value stream, thus enabling us to exceed our clients’ expectations and requirements.
