SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES!

***  Do you feel that your team needs traction to get your Lean Six Sigma efforts off the starting line?  

****  Do you want to move past the seemingly endless meetings where it feels like nothing gets accomplished? 

So many Lean Six Sigma teams spend countless hours "spinning their wheels" which creates frustration and anxiety for everyone!  Your "short" project turns into a 6, 8, or more month effort and you can't put your finger on exactly why!

After over 30 years training and advising senior corporate and government clients on transforming their businesses using Lean Six Sigma (LSS) and Business Process Reengineering (BPR), we know what it takes to create an environment where performance thrives. It's our mission to bring Mountain Home's vast knowledge and experience in business transformation to you, so you can stop the frustration & anxiety and achieve the performance gains you and your organization deserve!

We have worked with over 3,500 corporate and government clients, from Fortune 500 global companies to large Federal agencies,  with over 76,000 individuals from 80 countries attending our seminars and training classes on Business Transformation.

WHAT WE WILL COVER

  • You'll  discover what Lean Six Sigma REALLY is and how it can revolutionize your organization's performance.
  • How one simple shift in the way you approach Lean Six Sigma can explode your    performance gains - leading to HUGE bottom line improvements.
  • You'll discover how you can easily multiply your project results in less time than you thought possible.
  • The single most important question you must answer before you get started. (hint: Not knowing this will almost guarantee your Lean Six Sigma project's failure.)
