NOVACES Announces Workshop for IQPC’s 10th Annual Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Summit

The session focuses on coaching and mentoring programs and supports the conference's goal to help companies maximimize effectiveness of Lean Six Sigma.

New Orleans, LA December 18, 2008 (PRWeb) – NOVACES, a consulting and training firm dedicated to today’s most powerful implementations of Lean Six Sigma, announced today that it has finalized its workshop session for IQPC’s Annual Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Summit taking place January 19-22, 2009 at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa in Orlando, FL.

The interactive workshop in the morning on Day 1 of the summit will provide essential information about how an organization ensures it is getting the best results from its Lean Six Sigma coaching and mentoring efforts. Entitled, “How to Optimize Lean Six Sigma Mentoring Programs to Boost ROI” the hands-on session will bring together how to quickly develop internal capabilities to execute improvement projects and increase return-on-investment.

“Many organizations realize that they are not seeing the returns that were expected from Lean Six Sigma programs – project completion must be a key focus. Providing the right kind of support to newly trained Green Belts and Black Belts helps bridge that gap so that projects stay on track and produce the expected benefits,” says Tommy Houston, workshop facilitator and director of government services at NOVACES.

The session draws on best practices from multiple organizations to realize outcomes such as higher project completion rates, reduced project span times and achievement of certification goals. Importantly, the lessons underscore how to attain enhanced deployment maturity and self-sufficiency that prevent a program from stalling or even failing.

This process improvement summit was developed by IQPC to address the very real business challenges executives are facing for the year ahead – cost cutting, innovation, business intelligence and sustaining leadership commitment. The event boasts over 50 of the top thinkers in performance excellence leading discussions, seminars and workshops over four intensive days.

Both senior Lean Six Sigma practitioners and those just starting process improvement programs will benefit from the insights and strategies that will be discussed.  For information about and to register to attend the Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Summit, go to
