Search excellence starts with the sound foundation of a
well-defined and consistent search methodology. Our DMAIC-Search™
process methodology incorporates a unique Six Sigma approach to
filling our clients’ staffing needs.
An important foundation of Six Sigma methodology is the
concept of defect elimination. 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 defects that can result from a poor search process.
At The Avery Point Group we practice what we preach when it
comes to Six Sigma. Our experience has shown us the importance
of incorporating the voice of the client (VOC) at each critical
phase in the 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 defects that can cost a
client wasted time, money, and worse yet, a poor placement.
Each phase of our DMAIC-Search™
process is designed to move the search process along efficiently
and effectively, thus enabling us to exceed our clients’
expectations and requirements.
