Primary instructors are:
Steven C. Wilson is recognized as an outstanding business process improvement leader and facilitator of transformational change; an entrepreneur; a catalyst for collaboration - providing opportunities for people to share ideas and thoughts from the "best" and also for the "best" to learn from others; and a sought-after advisor, coach, consultant, and speaker. An ASQ CLSSBB since 2004, he has trained and coached over 2000 individuals from over 200 companies in Lean and Six Sigma, is a certified Theory of Constraints Supply Chain Logistics Practitioner and received Lean Certification through the University of Michigan College of Engineering (2004).
Having over 20 years of experience in business and operations, he is routinely called upon to offer guidance to C-suite and senior executives and business-operations and improvement specialists who wish to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of their organizations. He is highly valued for his ability to provide strategic insight and tactical analysis—and to convert these thoughts into reality by successful engagement and execution.
With a focus on improving the performance of companies and the conditions of those who work there, Wilson is regularly sought by companies to help analyze and formulate their strategic vision, to design the tactics necessary to achieve their goals, to identify and organize the logistics necessary to support the plan, and to lead the execution phase. He is highly valued for his ability to silence the noise and provide strategic analysis and tactical insight leading to successful deployment and execution.
Although he is an expert in the more granular facets of the discipline, he places a special emphasis on the cornerstones for success: the engagement of people and instilling a leadership culture as part of the company’s DNA. His end-goal is to help create high-performance individuals working in high- performance teams for high-performance organizations.
