How to Win a Rugby World Cup Using Lean Six Sigma
1. Keep your Eye on the Process Always
If you take your eye off the process and start thinking about the outcome, it spells disaster. Ireland started thinking about winning the World Cup during the Six Nations; the All Blacks in the semifinal and England in the Final.
2. Obey the Orming Principle
All teams obey the Orming rule; the Ireland team had reached the reforming stage but we chose to ignore it and tried to hang on, it didnít work. Both Brian Cody (Manager of the Kilkenny Hurling Team - Winners of 11 All Ireland Champions) and Jim Gavin (Manager of the 5-in-a-Row All-Ireland Winning Football Team) understand the Orming principle.
3. Stick to the Process Even When It Seems Dull
South Africa never took their eye off the process, they realized that sometimes the process may be boring but itís still the process and they won the World Cup.
