New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) September 5, 2008
Attendees at the "Lean Six Sigma Improvement Summit" to take place September 16-19 in Chicago will hear from more than 45 change management leaders, including Dr. Craig E. College, Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM).
The session will focus on how IMCOM is using Lean Six Sigma to reduce operating costs while delivering better and more consistent services to soldiers and their families at U.S. Army bases around the world. With 110 installations under management, 116,000 employees and an annual budget of $13 billion, the IMCOM Lean Six Sigma deployment is equivalent in scope and complexity to those of some Fortune 500 companies.
The presentation will illustrate some of the softer issues of Lean Six Sigma implementation such as how IMCOM has aligned incentives and rewards to assure improved process performance, engaged leaders beyond mere cheerleading and employed a strategy designed to grow capabilities internally. NOVACES is contracted to provide IMCOM with Lean Six Sigma deployment support and curriculum development services.
The 4th Annual Lean Six Sigma Improvement Week is produced by IQPC, which offers a suite of events around the world that are specifically tailored for executives involved in performance improvement.
