CRHRA Presents: Introduction to Lean Six Sigma for Human Resources Professionals

The Capital Region Human Resource Association (CRHRA) will hold the next Monthly Meeting and Program on Wednesday, November 10, 2010.

Human Resource Departments continually look at how they can get things done more efficiently.  You’ve probably heard about Lean Six Sigma with respect to manufacturing and wonder, what can it do for my Human Resources Department?  Our November meeting will   answer this question and give you an introduction as to how you can apply it to your processes.

This presentation is designed as an introduction to Lean Six Sigma for Human Resource professionals. Attendees will come away from this presentation with a conceptual understanding of Lean Six Sigma and real world examples of how it can be applied to Human Resource processes.

Our speaker, David Duda, is a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Black Belt at the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO). He joined the NYISO in 2008 and is responsible for facilitation of LSS training, leading continuous improvement efforts, mentoring of LSS practitioners and serving as an internal consultant to the organization. Prior to joining the NYISO, David worked as a Six Sigma Black Belt at Delta Air Lines’ technical operations facility in Atlanta, GA. While with Delta, David began his Six Sigma training in 1998 and received his Black Belt certification in 2001.
