OptimaLIVE | The Big Three Improvement Philosophies: TOC, Six Sigma, and Lean Thinking

Thursday, April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free – $39.00

As change agents, leaders must develop a path to move their business forward in the pursuit of perfection: meeting and exceeding the customer’s requirements. The problem most leaders face is determining the “best” philosophy to deploy in building a culture to reach that goal.

The Theory of Constraints, Six Sigma, and Lean Thinking can help leaders develop a company culture focused on safety, quality, flow, and process problem solving

As the three most popular improvement philosophies, they offer tools and methodology to create a roadmap to success. During this event, we’ll discuss:

  • The history of each philosophy
  • How they differ
  • How they’re similar
  • Suggestions to determine the best option(s) for your organization
  • Your thoughts on the big three and others to consider

Join us to diversify your knowledge on differing philosophies of improvement and policy deployment.

Meet your presenter:

Michael W. Loomer has been an active Lean/CI practitioner since the early 1990s. Most of his career has been in the manufacturing space, with some time spent in sales and marketing. Starting as a night shift drill press operator to Manger of Lean Production Systems of a global Fortune 500 company, Michael draws from a wide breadth of roles and experiences in his work and personal life to make sense of leadership and improvement philosophies.

Lead heroically. Think flow. Do good.
