Lean Six Sigma for leaders -September 2017


September 11, 2017

8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Traditionally, finance teams have been focused on helping steer their organisations through turbulent business environments. Often there is little time to focus on their own performance and development. However, with the business landscape changing at a radical pace, businesses are continually challenged to remain in the growth zone.

Modern CFOs are increasingly being asked and challenged to be the corporate architects, and to reinvent finance from a caretaker to a pivotal value adding function (e.g. reduce costs to serve and enhance business performance). This requires finding the right balance between compliance, efficiency and providing insights and innovation to the business. This will elevate finance to be at the forefront of the business, influencing strategy formulation and execution across the organisation.

We believe you can start this journey of transformation by upskilling yourself and your team through the power of Lean Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement Methodologies.
