Televised show to explain Six Sigma and Lean implementation in Fort Wayne
The city of Fort Wayne has been able to make a saving of $10 million within a period of five years (2000-20005) by following the Six Sigma and Lean principles.
Through this practice, the city is able to extend protection to its tax payers, deescalate costs, and extend better services. This has been achieved with a small work force of dedicated people. The city plans to explain this achievement through the implementation of Sigma and Lean principles in a televised program on October 27 at 7 p.m. local time. There is also a telecast to show how to reduce heating bills in the winter. FortWayne.com reports:
By using business practices such as Six Sigma and Lean, the city protects taxpayers, reduces costs and provides more services, all with fewer employees. “Bringing the Basics to You” will feature a discussion with city employees Rick Orr and Maria Gomez-Espino, who will tell you how they did it. The program airs live at 7 p.m. Oct. 27. Residents are encouraged to call 422-8708 with their questions.
