Lean Six Sigma For The Rest of Us

CCODN May 27 Webinar

Apple launched  the Macintosh with the slogan “The computer for the rest of us”. As an OD professional, you will likely recognize that earning a “Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification” is a feat of dedication and focus few of us achieve. Yet all of us can benefit from the wisdom contained in approaches that embody this dedication to process excellence. That is why we designed this webinar: we want you to benefit from the core concepts of process excellence, no matter what your situation or current level of understanding.

The concepts we will share in this program are successfully applied by organizations of all sizes: ranging from the one of largest employers in Central Ohio to small family-run businesses, non-profits, and even down to single member consultancies.

Our presenter for this program has distilled more than 27 years of business experience into a simple yet powerful approach he calls WorkExcellence™.  Steve Gran believes that all work, all human action can be improved and completed with excellence. When we focus on improvement and excellence,  we eliminate wasted time, energy and resources. The purpose of his work is to free up time in people’s lives.
