Eric Michrowski of TELUS provided an excellent learning session at the iSixSigma Live! Summit & Awards on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami.

Michrowski – the Director of the Process Improvement Center of Excellence and Lean Deployment Leader at this full-service, Canada-based telecommunications provider – shared with the audience how Lean Six Sigma can be complemented with a holistic approach to process improvement to drive greater value while increasing engagement.

Take-aways from the session included the following:

  • Leverage a holistic set of process improvement methods to complement Lean Six Sigma in addressing a broad range of opportunities; and,
  • Gain an appreciation of the engagement benefits driven by a portfolio of 100-day improvement projects.

Michrowski speaks from plenty of experience. At TELUS, he is responsible for driving process improvements across operations and IT teams (more than 10,000 professionals). He is a Master Black Belt with nearly 15 years of experience in process improvement and change management. His team has been very successful in engaging more than 800 front-line team members in one year through the delivery of business process improvements.
