BONUS SESSION  (At the end of the workshop)

Austin Energy In keeping with our purpose of Energy Management on a personal, organizational, and global scale, we are including a special session on improvement projects related to reducing energy usage and the corresponding reduction in your company's utility bills. Austin Energy's Senior Conservation Program Specialist Michelle Noriega will enlighten you on additional benefits available by doing so.




Be prepared for an active session - our use of educational experiences enables us to provide tremendous value in a shortened timeframe. At the end of the session you will know:

  • The Six Steps of an Improvement Project
  • What is "Six Sigma" and "Lean" and how will it help you?
  • The Five Families of Measure You Should Be Tracking
  • Five of the Most Useful Analysis Tools and How to Interpret Them
  • Questions to Ask When Reviewing an Improvement Project
  • Assessing the Financial Impact of Your Investment in Improvement Projects
  • Selecting and Prioritizing Projects for Optimum Return on Your Investment

This program uses laymen's examples so you don't need to be a statistical expert to understand the concepts, and it speaks an executive's language, relating the principles of quality and statistics to a business' financial measurements, and teaching at the level an executive needs. The result is a clear map of the metrics for your business and a set of strategies for reaching your destinations.



Return on ExcellenceTM (ROX ) is a highly disciplined process that helps us focus on developing and delivering near perfect products and services.  We're confident that our Return on ExcellenceTM programs can produce these results because we have done this  repeatedly in large and small organizations, and in both capital projects and operational budgets.  And because we know that you are the experts in your business, and we are the experts in the process of improving processes.  We work together in the most efficient way possible to achieve substantial, quantifiable results.

"ROX for Champions" is a stand-alone course that will enable you to oversee improvement projects to a successful conclusion.  If you would like further support for your staff, ask about our Yellow Belt, Green Belt, Black Belt and supplementary courses.
