Las Vegas Six Sigma Conference Announced

Published: Monday, July 26, 2004 - 21:00

WCBF will hold a Six Sigma conference in Las Vegas this October, the company recently announced.

“Successfully Implementing Six Sigma in Service and Transactional Environments” will be held Oct. 19-21 at the Venetian. It is being billed as the premier conference for expert advice supported by practical case studies on Six Sigma deployment for the service and transactional fields.

WCBF estimates that upward of 200 senior executives will attend the conference. It will feature a keynote address from John Maar, director of Six Sigma services at Motorola University, along with presentations and workshops by dozens of Black Belts, Master Black Belts, CEOs and quality consultants. Topics to be covered include the integration of lean principles into a Six Sigma methodology, sustaining ongoing improvement efforts and establishing a corporate culture that nurtures the Six Sigma approach.

Five pre-conference workshops will also be held on Oct. 19, all exploring different issues relating to the deployment of Six Sigma in diverse business environments. The conference will also feature numerous opportunities to network with other professionals, both during the conference itself and at informal evening gatherings after the day’s activities are over. Business improvement executives from many types of industry will attend and WCBF reports that the conference will likely sell out.
