Pivotal Resources Drives Effective Change Leadership With New Services

New Change Leadership™ Portfolio of Services Helps Companies Bridge the Gap Between Improvement Techniques and Leadership Skills

WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- Pivotal Resources, a global change leadership consulting firm, today announced the launch of its new Change Leadership™ portfolio of services created to address the breadth of issues that are critical to effective change and operational excellence. The new portfolio of consulting and training services was developed to help companies find the best route to sustained success and turn change into competitive advantage by driving a faster, more responsive organization.

"While most Six Sigma and process improvement consulting firms focus on methods and tools, our new services aim to bridge the gap between these improvement techniques and the leadership skills that enable an organization's change capability and operational excellence," explained Pete Pande, president and founder of Pivotal Resources and author of the new book, "The Six Sigma Leader." "To be most effective, Six Sigma principles must be supported by leadership capabilities and organizational practices that go beyond a 'traditional' quality improvement program."

Pivotal Resources' new Change Leadership services are divided into three categories -- Leadership Performance, Portfolio and Process Management, and Change Execution -- designed to help organizations define and successfully execute a variety of change initiatives. Pivotal Resources' unique and flexible approach enables clients to develop a customized program across the various categories, or focus on specific priorities such as change leadership consulting or lean Six Sigma strategy and development.
