Forrest Breyfogle at ASQ Toronto - Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard course

Lean Six Sigma Canada and Smarter Solutions are pleased to announce you that Forrest Breyfogle will be in Toronto in September, 2012. (Details will follow.)

Here is how Forrest Breyfogle describes the event:

"The problem-solving methodology of Lean Six Sigma has helped companies improve many processes; however, because Lean Six Sigma is not a business system, many of these improvements are in organizational silos and the business as a whole often does not experience true financial gain from these improvements; e.g., we saved 100 million dollars but nobody can find the money.

What I am sharing with organizations throughout the US and the world is a Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard methodology. This Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) business management system methodology is a means to achieve this objective. IEE is described in my 2008 published 4 book-volume series ( http://www.amazon.com/New-Books-by-Forrest-Breyfogle/lm/R2NKBB32H32H3O/ref=cm_lm_pdp_title_full) and 2010 published Lean Six Sigma Project Execution Guide (http://www.amazon.com/Lean-Sigma-Project-Execution-Guide/dp/061534948X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1282835700&sr=8-1) .
In 1-hr evening meetings and 1-day workshops, I have been describing an enhanced system that makes reference to the how-to-execute methodologies described in my five book-volume series. These sessions are being sponsored by professional organizations such as ASQ, APICS, PMI, and ASA. Feedback from the sessions have been very great. All attendees to the 1-day workshop are taught from the five-book set, which is part of the course material.

The one-hour session is titled "Improving Project Selection using a 9-step Re-invented Business Maagement" System, while the one-day workshop is titled "Enhanced Roadmap for Lean Six Sigma Project Selection and Execution."
ASQ Grand Rapids Session Chair, Don Brecke said: "Forrest Breyfogle introduced his Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) concepts to our American Society for Quality (ASQ) members at two ASQ Presentation events. His one-hour program, titled "Why Go Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard" was delivered at the evening event and was well received. The next day, Forrest delivered his one-day workshop, "Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard." Forrest was very engaging and did an outstanding job at both of these events. Our members gave Forrest exceptionally high marks and it was our pleasure hosting him in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our section member leadership highly recommends Forrest W. Breyfogle III to other quality and excellence-minded organizations as a speaker/presenter."

ASQ Orange County Session, Ed Matthews , ASQ CQM, ASQ CSSBB and Certified Lean Expert said: "I have seen many groups within an organization struggle in aligning their Six Sigma efforts with business improvement results. The one day session offered by Smarter Solutions / Forrest Breyfogle that introduces the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) System shows how this gap between business goals and process improvement can be closed. I am looking forward to reading the series of books and learning more about IEE."

Ken Case, past ASQ president said: "What grandmaster chess is to checkers, Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) is to the organizations improvement practices being deployed in most businesses today. Forrest Breyfogle's system provides a roadmap that blends analytics with innovation at both the enterprise and project execution levels. It makes Lean Six Sigma sing."
