Organizational culture and change management are essential considerations in any successful Lean Six Sigma program. In this presentation, we will discuss a set of guidelines used by one company to help foster a culture of quality enterprise-wide. We�ll include several examples from our CMMI High Maturity initiative that will provide Lean Six Sigma practitioners with specific tips on how to actively promote a culture of quality within their own organizations.
