Six Sigma and Lean
Chas Syndergaard, MBS '15 | email@example.com
The Continuous Improvement Club's goal is to give members resume firepower and immediate tools by hosting seminar/workshops wherein professionals with six sigma/lean experience teach either general frameworks or specific tools of a continuous improvement program. Members can have no experience but should leave this club with enough experience to feel safe putting “continuous improvement interest” on their resumes and feeling comfortable talking about their experience with these tools. The club will host 5 seminar/workshops where a general overview or specific tool of a continuous improvement program is presented/practiced.
