In finance departments, focusing Six Sigma efforts on cost savings can be a recipe for failure. The way to be successful is to focus on the areas in which employees perceive more value – risk mitigation, metric development, controls, gap analysis and assessments. This was the message of “Delivering Value in Corporate Finance”, a breakout session delivered by Black Belts from Cameron International at the iSixSigma Live! Summit & Awards, held Wednesday, Feb. 9, at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami.
The nearly 30 attendees in this session took home game plans in the following areas:
- Understanding process maturity and its affects on project identification and focus
- Establishing a framework for transactional processes
- Delivering value and keys to repeatable success
The session speakers from Cameron shared from their very robust backgrounds.
