(WCBF: Chicago) -- WCBF offers an exclusive invitation to join a complimentary Lean Six Sigma Webinar on Sept. 17 at 10 a.m., EDT, presented by Norman Bodek and Lee Campbell. The event comes to you from the forthcoming 4th Annual Global Lean, Six Sigma, and Business Improvement Summit, Oct. 13–16, at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, in Orlando.

This is the perfect chance to interact with these two outstanding  speakers, who will be taking questions after their presentations. 

• Norman Bodek, president of PCS Inc.  Norman Bodek discovered and published the works of the great Japanese manufacturing geniuses: Shigeo Shingo and Taiichi Ohno, the inventors of the Toyota Production System (using the just-in-time inventory system).

From his numerous trips to Japan he introduced to the Western world the kaizen blitz, single minute exchange of dies (SMED), total productive maintenance (TPM), quality function deployment (QFD), hoshin kanri, poka-yoke, visual factory, and other new manufacturing methodologies that have helped companies improve their quality and productivity. In 1988 he initiated the Shingo Prize for Manufacturing Excellence with Vern Buehler, professor at Utah State University. Most recently he co-authored a book with Bunji Tozawa titled The Idea Generator - Quick and Easy Kaizen (PCS Press, 2007).

• Lee Campbell, LSS deployment director and strategic planning officer, U.S. Army Military District of Washington.  Lee Campbell will discuss how lean Six Sigma is the toolbox for accomplishing strategic and operational objectives.
