Lean Six Sigma Alliance Partner:
President, Business Excellence Leaders
Leap has had the good fortune to work with Bob Crescenzi on several large-scale Lean Six Sigma Deployments, including Bob's most recent role at NewPage, the paper manufacturing giant, where Bob was a pioneer in harmonizing the application of Leap's Fast-Change Tools with Lean and Six Sigma methods that resulted in NewPage earning the award for Best New Lean Six Sigma Deployment.
Bob's recent survey with the Conference Board involving over 40 of the largest Lean Six Sigma Deployments in North America validated six factors that drive Lean Six Sigma ROI. Leap's Fast Change Tools for Lean Six Sigma provide a timely and high-impact response to the gaps rated as most difficult to address by Deployment Leaders including:
- Belt Team Leadership Skills
- Lack of reliable methods for Productive Employee Engagement
- The need for more reliable tools to support Solution Replication
Leap is working with Bob to leverage these survey results by applying Leap's Fast-Change Tool Kits tailored to the unique needs of both mature and start-up Lean Six Sigma Deployments.
