July 1st, 2015

On June 16, 2015, the Mid-South Quality Productivity Center (MSQPC) presented three City of Germantown employees with their Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Green Belt certifications, indicating that they have mastered statistical methods to eliminate waste and improve efficiency in their organization’s processes.  The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt graduates received certificates and the Black Belt graduate received an embroidered black belt in commemoration of their accomplishments. 

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt graduate was: 

  • Phil Rogers – Club Director, Germantown Athletic Club

 The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt graduates were: 

  • Keith Saunders, Jr – Administrative Chief
  • Chris McPhaul – Battalion Chief

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Green Belt training are part of MSQPC’s Memphis Lean Six Sigma Institute (MLSSI), which offers comprehensive Lean Six Sigma training to individuals in all industries.  In order to provide a more convenient and user friendly approach to the training, MSQPC piloted its evening certification program in 2013.  Similar to a graduate course, Lean Six Sigma training consisted of 16-weeks of interactive lectures, hands-on exercises, customized reference materials and coaching support from Master Black Belt, Monte Massongill and Black Belt Daniel Clark. Participants met each Tuesday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Smith & Nephew campus.
