On Thursday, January 7, 2010, Ed Biernat will present a free live webcast entitled. "Lean Six Sigma: History, Trends, and Predictions."
Lean and Six Sigma have been buzzwords for more than a decade. Some companies have thoroughly embraced the concepts and toolsets, others have dabbled, and the rest sit on the sidelines wondering, to borrow a phrase from a television ad from the ‘80’s, “Where’s the beef?”
In this interactive webcast, we will briefly review what these strategies entail, who is using them and how, and then we’ll put on our prognosticator’s hat take a look at what the future may hold in store. We will review some of the latest “buzz” on the topic as well as recent research aimed at how well these methodologies are moving off the shop floor into wider application.
Ed welcomes any questions regarding Lean, Six Sigma, or the “new and improved” Lean Six Sigma. Although we will be focusing on the implementation side of the equation, (including the use of Palisade software), the discussion can be as free-ranging as the participants require.
