Free Workshop on Process Improvement for Energy Company Professionals

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  A free workshop for energy executives detailing how to move process improvement closer to the CEO's office is scheduled for May 24 at the second annual Energy Forum for Process Excellence.

The workshop is a complimentary session within the four-day energy forum produced by iSixSigma Live! and presented by SSA & Company. The conference runs May 24-27 at The St. Regis Houston.

The good news is that many energy companies are utilizing process improvement designed for today's competitive and complex business environment -- they're applying fewer resources and providing faster results than in years past, with global operations rapidly aligning around a central strategy. The bad news is that most business improvement senior executives are still too far away from the CEO's office -- literally and figuratively -- to allow PI to deliver fully on its promise. If process improvement isn't a core component of a CEO's strategic plan, then it is under-serving the corporation and its shareholders.

In this session, attendees will learn how to embed business improvement more deeply into their company's overall strategic plan, and what the exponential returns will be for their CEO and corporate shareholders when they do. In reviewing these case studies and processes first-hand, attendees come away with an understanding of the transformational potential of locating process improvement in the corner office (or at least closer than it is today).
