Six Sigma - Taking a Strategic Look
May 9th, 2014

Join us for this Rose-Hulman Continuing and Professional Studies day-long workshop to take a strategic look at the topic of Six Sigma.  From roots in manufacturing and production settings, the concepts and tools of six sigma have been expanded to include all areas of the enterprise including development, production, and service.  Presenters will include leading technical and business professionals in the field. Attendance is limited.  Register today.

Six Sigma has emerged as a critical competitive tool for organizations enabling them to provide high quality products, offer better service, and achieve improved financial performance.  Studies have shown that effective Six Sigma programs can return savings of 1.5 to 4% of revenue.  These savings can accrue from lower operating costs, increased revenue, higher customer satisfaction, and increased market value for the company.  Taking the right strategic approach to establishing a Six Sigma program is essential to realizing the greatest benefit for your organization.
