White Belt Training ( Six Sigma )


I lead problem-solving project :

The Problem:

One of the requirements of the  National Credit Act is that the Credit Provider must issue a balance to the Debt Counsellor within 5 days of receiving a 17.1

My Solution :

As a measure we have put in place to stop the balance increasing from initial issue of the Certificate of Balance on the cheque account is something called a Stop Hold

 A stop hold is a hold placed on a cheque account specifically to make sure that no transactions go through the account to increase the balance.
