Andrew Kirsch, MS MA

Principal

Project Management Virtual Coaching LLC

This is a talk intended primarily for business managers, quality leaders, and Lean Six Sigma leaders; that is to say, those who manage the resources applied to projects for process improvement to drive Quality. These managers and leaders need to ensure that their projects and process improvement resources are used most effectively, which is harder than it sounds. Worse yet, many organizations just assign teams and individuals to “get it done” with limited training and little-to-no coaching. Unsurprisingly, the results are very uneven. The talk will also be of value to individual quality engineers, belts, and project managers, even if they are inhibited to some degree by the management system that they work within.
This presentation will endeavor to:
* Distinguish project management and process improvement
* Illustrate how each skill set fits into an organization’s quality efforts and intertwine on another
* Expose some common project-level gaps in those skills
*Explain how sound project coaching helps ensure project excellence CLICK HERE to complete the session survey
