Abstract
Purpose The purpose of the master thesis is to create a Six Sigma based
project steering model for Fast Track Projects in order for Plan
& Secure Capacity to be able to benefit from efficient project
execution processes.
Methodology The project is performed as a clinical research where
workshops with project leaders have been held in order to test
the model. The data collection is based on interviews with
employees within the Plan & Secure Capacity process and on
literature regarding project management and Six Sigma as well
as internal documents at IKEA.
Conclusion The analysis showed that the wished position for Fast Track
Project execution at Plan & Secure Capacity, which is defined
as DAIIT – Define, Analyse, Improve,... (More)

Conclusion The analysis showed that the wished position for Fast Track
Project execution at Plan & Secure Capacity, which is defined
as DAIIT – Define, Analyse, Improve, Implement, Transition
captures many of the ideas of best practice but does not reach
it. The current situation, how Fast Track Project execution is
actually conducted, is far from best practice. The project
steering is mostly performed ad-hoc and there is little or no
emphasis on documentation. In order for Plan & Secure
Capacity to be able to reach best practice a project steering
model based on the theoretical framework of Six Sigma,
DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Implement, Control) and
an implementation plan for how to implement the model in the
most efficient way at Plan & Secure Capacity have been
developed. (Less)
