HDJ Wraps-Up Lean Six Sigma Training

By HDJ

After an energetic few months of training, HDJ has completed the final round of
classroom instruction for Lean Six Sigma. HDJ kicked off Lean Six Sigma in April with
the first week-long training event, followed by a second week-long event In May.
The training culminated with another event in June with the entire company during our
HDJ Summer Extravaganza week in Michigan.


The HDJ Lean Six Sigma team is now working to complete our initial Lean Six Sigma
projects. Projects were identified based upon their potential to improve our systems
and processes by making gains in efficiency, quality, and client experience.


HDJ is committed to the Six Sigma improvement process because the healthiest
businesses always recognize opportunities to improve. HDJ selected the Six Sigma
program based upon its potential to have a significant and meaningful impact on
our business by improving overall delivery. Six Sigma leads to improved processes by
utilizing statistical analysis, controlling variation, and using a data-driven
methodology to identify and implement changes.


We are excited about our Lean Six Sigma program and the potential for it to deliver
improvements throughout HDJ and the value we provide to our clients. We look
forward to applying our training to improve overall project support for our clients
and partners.


HDJ is a leading national design firm providing architectural and engineering
expertise to support projects throughout the United States.

How do you collaborate and develop strong working relationships with your team when many are distributed across the United States?  This is the question we asked ourselves a few years ago.  The answer is simple, we travel our entire team and families in from locations throughout the country to West Michigan for an active week together.  Our steam from across the United States traveled to West Michigan to participate in this annual event where we celebrate our successes, focus on collaboration, and develop strategies to grow as a company and as people.
