But with so many approaches out there – re-engineering, Six Sigma, Lean, Kaizen, PVA, Lean Sigma, TQM and more – how do you narrow down the choice? This seminar will be of interest to you if you would like to learn more about each of these systems so you can determine which is best suited to your organization or validate the choice you have already made. Eight different approaches will be presented. The key elements, implementation stages, human resources requirements and outcomes of each will be explained.
