Lean & Six Sigma (LSS) is gaining traction in corporate real estate (CRE), and has enjoyed some celebrated successes. Still, many CRE organizations and leaders have little familiarity with LSS, and are not yet realizing its benefits. In a recent CoreNet Global survey, 11% of respondents indicated they make regular use of Lean & Six Sigma, but fully 72% indicated that they are only now becoming aware of its use, using it to only a limited extent, or do not yet use it in CRE even though their broader enterprise does. What’s more, applications of LSS in corporate real estate differ markedly from traditional implementations in, for example, manufacturing. This seminar presents senior leaders an eye-opening view into transformative uses of Lean & Six Sigma in CRE, what works and what doesn’t, and management best practices that leaders need to employ to assure success and maximize impact of a Lean & Six Sigma initiative.
