Management Development Center to offer Lean Six Sigma workshop


HAYS, Kan. -- A workshop on implementing Lean Six Sigma principles will be offered in April as part of the spring workshop series from the Management Development Center at Fort Hays State University.

"Intro to Lean Six Sigma: Adding Value to your Organization" will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 24, in the Memorial Union's Stouffer Lounge on the FHSU campus.

Dr. Jamie Schwandt, an FHSU alumnus, is an author, a TV show host and a continuing process improvement director in the U.S. Army reserve. Benjamin Christians is a Lean Six advisor with Honeywell and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Each person who completes the workshop will receive a completion certificate. The cost is $219. Registrations received prior to April 19 are appreciated. Hays Area Chamber of Commerce members are eligible for a 15-percent discount.
