In just one hour, you’ll learn how the proven business management concepts of Lean Six Sigma can add value – and eliminate waste – to help make you more productive than ever. Topics include: why “going the extra mile” can be a waste of time; how to reduce small mistakes that lead to big problems; getting rid of those “piles of files”; and how unrecognized potential is bad for business. See how powerful, achievable process improvements can translate to a healthier bottom line.
