S2Pro© is building a one-stop database of authentic, business case studies from practitioners, business leaders and researchers.  The case studies/success stories must relate explicitly (beyond inference) to business goal of one or more of accelerating proficiency, reducing time to proficiency, shorten time to readiness, increasing speed to proficiency, accelerating performance, speeding up full productivity, improving onboarding, or accelerating expertise of workforce.  Note that shortening time to training is not a business goal that these case studies should address.

Case Study Template/Guidelines

We do not necessarily enforce any template for submitting the case studies. However, we appreciate the case study/success story be furnished as a Six Sigma DMAIC project structure which includes 5 core elements: define, measure, analyze, implement and control. The case study/business story should be a description of a bounded project structured (a clearly defined start and clearly defined end) around these five core elements which essentially describe a story in any improvement oriented project.
