Internet Portal Focuses on Financial Services and Six Sigma

Published: Monday, March 15, 2004 - 23:00

George Group, DeLeeuw Associates Inc. and iSixSigma have formed a strategic alliance to create an Internet portal for the financial services industry, focused specifically on the application of Six Sigma.

The cobranded portal, named iSixSigma Financial Services, is intended to facilitate improvements in quality and efficiency within the financial services industry by providing free and easy access to educational and reference materials, case studies, best practices and other information designed specifically for financial services professionals.

The portal began operating on Jan. 1 and has already attracted thousands of financial services professionals interested in using Six Sigma in their operations. Thousands of referrals from other sites indicate the portal is already being received as a useful resource.

"This project is a unique and comprehensive resource for the financial services industry," says Michael George Sr., chairman and CEO of George Group. "iSixSigma, George Group and DeLeeuw Associates share a common vision for this portal to be the global learning and communications platform for financial services professionals."

"Our goal is to promote the sharing of best practices in process improvement through our partnership with George Group and iSixSigma," adds Bob DeLeeuw, president and CEO of DeLeeuw Associates Inc. "This will allow financial services professionals to deliver products and services to their clients in a more efficient, cost-effective and higher-quality manner,"

The portal features an interactive discussion forum, original articles, newsletters, free tools, professional development materials and other useful resources. Original article submissions are welcome from Six Sigma and industry experts, consultants, and others interested in sharing information and improving financial services quality.
