High School Math Teacher – Henrico County Public Schools
SIX SIGMA APPROACH: The study of reducing variation and achieving better industrial quality control in an organization centers around knowledge of interdependent systems, motivation of the work force, and maintaining continuity of expertise.
LEAN MANUFACTURING: Every organization that provides a product or service to customers involves a systematic and value added procedure. This procedure for product development should address efficiency through facility layout, elimination of waste, and 5S organization techniques.
LEADERSHIP: Successful organizations require leaders that are willing to communicate goals and motivate the workforce through mentorship, training, and team work. Most importantly, leaders at any level must strive to give each and every member a purpose for why their work is relevant and meaningful to overall success in the organization.
