The 15th edition of LEAN AND SIX SIGMA EXCELLENCE AWARDS (LSSEA) 2019 took place in Pune and Bangalore on the 3rd and 4th of October, 2019. The corporate event was organised by the Supply Chain and Operations (SCOPE) Club of Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD). The theme set for this year’s LSSEA was “Applying Operational Intelligence to enhance customer value in the era of globalisation”. The club had an association with ISCEA (International Supply Chain Education Alliance) and SCNext for the event as their knowledge partner.
The concept of Lean and Six Sigma Excellence Awards took genesis in the year 2005. The underlying intent was to acknowledge, encourage and honour the adoption of Lean and Six Sigma practices resulting in improvement in processes in the industry. From a humble beginning with 37 companies in the first year at Pune, the 2010 edition of the event saw the entry of the concept of regional rounds at Pune, Bengaluru and Delhi to cater to the increasing demand and participation. The year 2011 onwards, the event has been receiving more than 100 entries. We’ve come a long way with the year 2019 having participants from highly recognised industry stalwarts such as Bharat Forge, Infosys, Wipro, Cummins, Aditya Birla Group and so on.
LSSEA is a one of a kind corporate event. It provides different organisation a platform to showcase the best practices used in their projects, hence increasing the visibility. There is also a system of feedback from eminent panellists, which helps in improving the existing processes combined with valuable insights, which could be used for process improvement and implementation in the future. Additionally, it is also an invaluable opportunity to get insights into the best practices followed by other organizations in the same, or different industry, which provides a rich learning experience to the industry stalwarts. Last but not the least, it gives them a wonderful opportunity to network with other Six Sigma practitioners in the industry.
The regional rounds were conducted on the 3rd and 4th of October, 2019. The final round of LSSEA 2019 is scheduled to be held on the 15th of November, 2019. We look forward to hosting another successful event with overwhelming participation from the industry!
