Top business and government practices will be on display at the Lean Six Sigma Showcase from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday, September 14 at the Grand Wayne Center.

The event is hosted by the City of Fort Wayne and the TQM Network. The event offers business and government leaders an opportunity to learn how to achieve significant improvements through Six Sigma. Six Sigma helps organizations decrease costs, improve customer service and increase productivity. Data based decision making and empowerment of employees are key components to the success of the program.

Mayor Graham Richard will share how the City has saved $10 million since 2000 by using practices such as Lean Six Sigma and high performance government standards to protect taxpayers, reduce costs and provide increased services with fewer employees. Bob Hoffman, Director of Operations for BAE Systems, will be the keynote speaker.
