Expanding our focus to reflect the changing business environment

Our Mission at The Greater Rochester Lean Six Sigma Consortium provides a forum and process to advance the knowledge and effective use of Lean principles, through shared training and peer-to-peer relationships, thereby enabling economic viability and growth.

Guiding Principles:

We are a learning organization, inclusive of both those who have experience in Lean Six Sigma and those who are just beginning.

We are a cross-sector community organization, touching government, business, not-for-profit, healthcare, and education.

We actively participate in training, hosting site visits, attending site visits, sharing knowledge and collaboration; continual engage-ment is required to stay in good-standing.

We share a common goal of continuous improvement through lean thinking.

We are committed to implementa-tion of what we learn.

We are results-oriented, seeking to achieve personal business objec-tives as well as to improve the economic viability of Greater Rochester.

We respect the competitive nature of potential members, and will make accommodations to avoid conflict of interest.

Members learn from:

  • Tours
  • Networking
  • Sharing best practices
