Cambridge, Massachusetts (September 7, 2010) – PowerSteering Software, the leading provider of on-demand Project & Portfolio Management (PPM) solutions, will lead an executive forum on “Applying Lean Six Sigma to Lean Six Sigma” at the IQPC Process Excellence Leaders Meeting in Chicago on September 14th and 15th.

The discussion will be co-led by Randy Clark, Black Belt and Director of Six Sigma at PowerSteering Software, and James Pearson, Quality & Management Consultant and former Vice President of Quality and LSS at EMC. The session represents an unprecedented opportunity for a cross-industry group of senior executives to strategize about the best ways to sustain Lean Six Sigma value amidst leadership turnover, program maturity and the economic downturn. The interactive dialogue will follow a classic 5 Why/DMAIC format and address these common challenges:

  • The inability to apply Lean Six Sigma to strategic business problems
  • The increase in competitive initiatives vying for attention and resources
  • The difficulty of sustaining Lean Six Sigma momentum
  • The obstacles of securing Lean Six Sigma executive support

More information about the event is available online.
