Chris Collins, the new Erie County executive, is making good on his promise to bring business efficiency practices to the county…namely Six Sigma.
|In his most unusual appointments, the new executive selected Alfred Hammonds Jr. as his director of Six Sigma implementation. Six Sigma is the business-sector efficiency discipline Collins championed during his campaign. Hammonds, senior project director at the University at Buffalo’s Center for Industrial Effectiveness, is a black-belt practitioner of Six Sigma.|
