The partnership will bring a combined offering of world-class Six Sigma services and program management software to corporations worldwide.

Through the strategic alliance, Six Sigma Academy will introduce its clients to PowerSteering’s program management software to help them track their Six Sigma projects and the financial benefits achieved from their operational excellence initiative.

“For an operational excellence program to succeed, we recommend a relentless focus on results,” said Jack Finney, president and CEO of Six Sigma Academy. “Products like PowerSteering will help our clients focus on managing their Six Sigma projects – including financial benefits.”

“The combination of Six Sigma Academy’s outstanding service offering with PowerSteering’s market-leading program management software is unbeatable,” said David Boghossain, CEO of PowerSteering Software. “One of the greatest challenges in Six Sigma initiatives is managing all of the facets of the program – people, projects and processes — across businesses, applications and deployments.
