Speaker: Mr. Forrest Breyfogle
Topic: Why Lean Six Sigma Deployments Fail and What to Do About It
Know anyone who has been laid off because his/her organization’s Lean and/or Six Sigma deployment was downsized or eliminated? My bet is that you know people and organizations who have encountered this fate. Maybe even you have been a victim of this process-improvement deployment shrinkage/elimination issue. What happened? What can be done to resolve this issue? Presented is a solution to this frequently-encountered occurrence. In this session, we will first assess the past and then determine the ten steps you could follow to resolve this disbandment problem for organizational process-improvement deployments.
