Ever wonder why some Lean Six Sigma deployments achieve significant ROI and others struggle? Join me as we explore what our team uncovered in talking with high achieving deployments, as well as the critical issues impacting those that weren’t seeing the same results. Our team conducted a benchmarking study with companies large and small to learn more about current company challenges and keys to success. Get a better understanding of how strategies change over time, how well other organizations are doing with culture change, where the highest value projects are internally, and what tips veterans can offer for those getting started. This presentation will include findings in the broad categories of (1) strategy, (2) projects, (3) people, (4) culture, (5) types of deployment/methodologies, and (6) getting started.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
