It's interesting that you would choose DMAIC as a framework instead of PDCA or PDSA (or even Toyota's 8-step problem solving model), since DMAIC is a Six Sigma creation (and they don't use formal Six Sigma in Toyota factories, for what that's worth).

Question about the reservoir - he'll drive around with that in the engine compartment the whole time? Are there any downsides to doing that?

So a year later, has this helped you be more effective in your job? Serious question. My guess would be that organizing your project folders there had a far bigger benefit than putting tape around your post-it notes.

If post-it notes are a critical component of your job, and work stops when you can't find them, then I would argue the tape would help. On the other hand . . . as you rightly point out, that's not typically the bottle-neck for knowledge workers.  :-)

I love it, especially the thought of giving "time savings" as a Christmas gift!
