About the presentation:

 Julie S. Stiles, CLP, will discuss “Lean Six Sigma Champions:  What to Know.”  In both Lean and Six Sigma work, clients and program participants frequently want to know more about the role of a project champion.  This program will discuss the importance of setting a strategic direction, following a problem-solving methodology, persisting until root cause is identified, and leading others through a change effort to achieve improvement.  Attendees will learn about what you need to know if you are a project champion, and what you should expect from a project champion if you are a project leader or participant.  We will provide time for Q&A as this topic typically inspires lively discussion.
