The Great Discovery: How Six Sigma can Empower the Ordinary to Achieve the Extraordinary!

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

In today’s business environment, there are three imperatives that are crucial to success. First, business leaders, at all levels, must seek new and better ways to make their organization more innovative in everything they do. Second, business leaders must continually strive to capture and deploy world-class practices that support the design and flawless execution of critical work processes. Third, business leaders must develop and retain a workforce of world-class leaders if the latter two objectives are to be fully realized.

To realize the aims of these imperatives, an organization must change the inner core of how its leaders and work teams think. But why is it so necessary to change the pattern of reasoning? Simply stated, every business breakthrough first begins its life as a thought; and a thought is the result of how a person (or group of people) thinks.

In his Keynote Address at the Global Lean, Six Sigma and Business Improvement Summit, taking place October 14 – 17 in Orlando Florida, Dr Mikel J. Harry, Principal Architect of Six Sigma will present a proven, systematic, time-tested way of leadership thinking. The Great Discovery can be rapidly deployed throughout any type of enterprise, regardless of product or service orientation from the bottom-up or top-down. It represents a way of thinking that can be quickly adopted and implemented by individuals and teams alike. In this sense, The Great Discovery can be immediately leveraged by leaders to better direct work teams toward the realization of a business dream or stretch goal.

WCBF’s 3rd Annual Global Lean, Six Sigma and Business Improvement Summit & Industry Awards presents an unrivalled speaker panel also headlined by other top business authors Matthew E. May, Kerry Patterson, Steven J. Spear, and Lee Cockerell, complimented by an outstanding speaker panel of industry leaders, CEOs and first-class Deployment practitioners addressing Lean, Six Sigma and process excellence for innovation and outstanding performance.
