There's an important event coming up in just a few short weeks--"Profit through Process," the IQPC Lean Six Sigma summit. The summit is an almost week-long conference in Orlando, January 17 through January 20. IQPC has rounded up about 800 experts to deliver their knowledge, insights, and often inspiration to the folks who attend. These presenters represent some high-profile companies like BP and PayPal, as well as leading consulting firms.
The sessions have been organized to satisfy the hankerings of everybody in the Six Sigma-process optimization crowd, from the chief quality officer to the Black Belt. And one thing I think will be really productive for the folks who get down to Orlando is the conference's emphasis on integrating a Lean Six Sigma program so that it becomes a living part of the organization.
Eight hundred is a lot of experts, who should have a lot of useful ideas about driving profit through process improvement. And will be a lot of useful tools to check out. Which brings me to my role at the summit--how can I sign off on thes blog without putting in a plug for Palisade? I'll be there with our Monte Carlo software--booth #7--extolling the virtues of Monte Carlo simulation for Lean Six Sigma. Monte Carlo simulation is a relatively recent addition to the Six Sigma toolkit, and while you may not think risk analysis is central to process optimization, it is really about getting a grip on uncertainty--and you can certainly relate to that.
Please know the IQPC is offering a "Free Hall Pass" for those interested in networking or exploring the latest Lean, Six Sigma & BPM solutions.
Remember, it's January, and you can come to Florida! Here's the website--www.leansixsigmasummit.com/Event.aspx?id=341814.
