CDG Lean Coach to Present at Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Summit

CYPRESS, CA., November 8, 2010 – CDG Lean Coach Chris Galante will deliver a presentation as a featured guest speaker at the Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Summit, scheduled for January 17 – 20, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.

Mr. Galante recently joined Helen Winsor of the Six Sigma & Process Excellence IQ organization for a podcast interview to support the upcoming conference. With an underlying theme of “Lean is a Journey, Not a Destination”, Galante discusses how CDG as a Boeing subsidiary company has applied Lean to support its overall business strategy, and to reinforce the broader Lean initiatives at The Boeing Company as well. He described how CDG ensures its Lean programs remain sustainable, and how they have evolved through team spirit, keen business intelligence related to new technologies, and the commitment to stick to the basics and stay focused on goals. Galante also discusses how CDG has had to adapt its Lean programs in line with the troubled economic climate in recent years. He summed up the interview with some personal insights and reflections about the challenges he has faced and the lessons he has learned over the span of several years as a leader of change and process improvement at CDG and other organizations.
