Lean Six Sigma Does Improve the Top and Bottom Line in Most Organizations.  October 10 2012

For many customers, the service landscape of recent years has become almost unrecognizable as they navigate company websites and voice response systems, wait for delayed shipments only to receive the wrong goods or become frustrated over language barriers in their discussions with

suppliers' service reps. These experiences don't do much to build customer satisfaction and loyalty.  As some customers say, there is poor service out there or if it's there, it's broken. Despite many companies' struggles to operate profitably and respond to customers' needs, there are organizations doing it right. In fact, some companies are delivering benchmark quality service to their customers.  It’s still about the customer first. 

In this webinar, Joe DeFeo, President and CEO of the Juran Institute shares how today's service leaders managed the bottom line and improved performance so they could achieve breakthroughs in service quality to compete in the global marketplace

Harry will discuss ways to look at your own company’s approach and offer insights on how to increase your leverage of the talent you have using methods taken from up-front innovation practices to produce implementable corrective action concepts faster and thus close those stalled projects.
