Leap Technologies Joins Forces With Motorola University

Published: Sunday, May 2, 2004 - 22:00

Leap Technologies has entered into an agreement with Motorola University, Motorola Inc.’s corporate university, to provide corporate Six Sigma solutions.

Under the terms of the agreement, Motorola University will provide Six Sigma expertise and services to organizations looking to combine the speed and engagement of Leap Technologies’ Action Workout Methodology with the analytical rigor of Six Sigma.

"It’s an exciting opportunity to bring the combined expertise of a two-time winner of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the creator of the Six Sigma business improvement methodology with our industry-leading capability in rapid process improvement through employee engagement," says Rick Tucci, president of Leap Technologies. "Together we offer an unbeatable combination of speed and sustainability for organizations looking to maximize the bottom-line and cultural benefits of their business improvement efforts."

Action Workout is the latest generation of the fast change methodology pioneered at General Electric to empower employees and rapidly reduce bureaucracy and waste across the organization. According to Leap, more than 200 client organizations have used Action Workout to engage thousands of employees in performance improvement projects realizing more than $500 million in documented cost and productivity savings.

"Motorola University is very excited about its agreement with Leap Technologies," says Stacy Hanley, director of business development for Motorola University. "Our charter is to extend the benefits of Six Sigma across Motorola’s value chain and to businesses worldwide. As one of our authorized business partners, Leap Technologies enables us to extend our world-class Six Sigma training and consulting services to a broader range of organizations."
