Next week, one of the industry’s largest and best events will take place in Orlando, Florida. That is IQPC’s Lean Six Sigma Summit. Every year it is one of the few events that I look forward to attending. The IQPC does a great job gathering industry experts from around the world to share their thoughts, experiences, and wisdom.
This year will be a challenging year for all, so it is particularly necessary to spend travel and education funds wisely, should you be lucky enough to still have a travel budget. If you do, I would highly recommend considering this event.
There will be a cross-functional group of experts such as William Kimbrell of Blue Ocean Strategy, who will share his growth strategies in today’s over-crowded industries. Tina Huesing of Motorola and JD Sicilia, Director, Department of Defense, Lean Six Sigma Program Office will address the what I call “ Doing more with less. “ Ms. Huesing’s focus will be streamlining processes, timely execution, and waste elimination. Mr. Sicilla’s focus will be on Strategic Alignment, Consistency of Approach, Integration and Human Capital. Also, George Turner of Rock-Tenn will be speaking on professional development.
These topics have always been at the root of Lean Six Sigma but now more than ever they are very important in today’s business climate. I am looking forward to learning from these experts next week at the Summit.
Palisade will be demonstrating the latest and best in Monte Carlo Simulation for Six Sigma. If you are attending, please stop by and say hello! If you don’t attend, please contact me and I will be happy to provide you with a free trial and web demo.
