 NEWS understands the issues that they must overcome in terms of quality, speed, and controlling costs. 
 NEWS believes that the analysis that your team has provided in the last three Excel modules has led to successful strategic plans. 
 The NEWS BOD would like to understand the probability of this success before granting permission for the CEO to execute the plan. 
 Data has been gathered on the last 50 process improvement program (PIP) projects that the NEWS BOD had approved. 
 The BLUE columns describe whether the PIP was initially approved as a quality, speed, or cost control project, or combination. (1 = Yes) 
 The GREEN columns describe the quality, speed, and $ results from each project.  Regardless of how the PIP was initially chosen, 
 the positive or negative results were gathered in terms of quality, speed, and $ at the end of the project. 
 The RED column describes the BOD final determination of whether the PIP was successful or not; old BOD criteria was confidential. (1 = Yes) 
 Question 1:  Using the data given below, complete Task 1.  The BOD would like to know the percentage of PIP projects completed per each category, since their short-term memory 
 has hindered their ability to remember the percentage that began as an effort to overcome quality, speed, and cost issues. 
 Also, briefly discuss the PIP success rate attributable to each type of PIP effort based on the BOD’s confidential criteria shown only as success or failure Results. 
 ANSWER:  Quality recevied a 58%, speed received a 58%, and cost received 52% Q&S 24, Q&C 22%,  S&C 32%, QSC 10%. The PIP Success rate is dependent on whether the project was 
 for each category.  
 
 Question 2:  Using the data given below, complete Task 2.  NEWS is very proud of their PIP initiative and has briefed the press that their success rate is greater than 50%. 
 Is this true?  Explain. 
 The BOD is very concerned about this next process improvement project decision.  It is truly a make or break initiative for the company, and therefore a more conservative set of  
 success criteria has been provided.  Does the new criteria change the rate of success of past PIP initiatives?  Given this probability of success, what recommendation would you make to the BOD? 
 ANSWER:  NO it’s not true, The new PIP Success rate is 22% which is less than the 50% reported to the press.
