Synchronizing Lean Six Sigma to Business

Six Sigma originated in the mid-eighties to address key business problems using a disciplined approach to reducing defects and improving yields through variance reduction. In the nineties, Six Sigma evolved into an enterprise improvement strategy for reducing cost. Lean and Six Sigma have since been combined to “simplify and perfect knowledge acquisition.” This workshop is for leaders seeking enterprise transformation strategies which maximize top and bottom-line growth and aid in achieving superior value delivery to their customers. The session topics represent a compilation of Lean Six Sigma best practices from business, government, and academia.
