Forrest Breyfogle - Lean Six Sigma Canada Classroom Training

Forest Breyfogle, award-winning author of "Implementing Six Sigma" will be instructing the course

Forrest Breyfogle was honored for his cutting-edge approach to traditional Six Sigma methodologies in his book, Implementing Six Sigma, 2nd edition (ISS2) at the 2005 American Society for Quality (ASQ) World Conference. ISS2 referred by many as the "how to" book recommended by ASQ, and is now receiving the coveted Phillip B. Crosby Medal. This honor is presented to the individual who has authored a distinguished book contributing significantly to the extension of the philosophy and application of the principles, methods, or techniques of quality management. Forrest has authored or co-authored eleven books, published over 150+ technical articles for a wide range of publications, and has been interviewed by television, radio, and publication editors about managing the dynamics of organizations and the application of all forms of enterprise improvement methodologies.
