Introducing Agile Sigma1a new business process improvement methodology that integrates the “best” of both Six Sigma and Agile development methods to provide a new approach that can enable business to deliver improved processes more quickly and effectively. The new Agile Sigma1 approach is a four phase adaptation of the standard five phase Six Sigma DMAIC methodology (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) – to provide a streamlined process for more efficient execution and results. Read Timothy Gaffney’s Introducing Agile Sigma Article v1.2 for details about this ground-breaking business process improvement methodology.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Tim Gaffney’s thirty-five-year career as an industrial engineer has prepared him well to share his business process improvement experiences through teaching and consulting. He leads a series of Harper CE courses covering Six Sigma-based process improvement methodology.

When students tell me they want to learn Six Sigma skills to help them prepare for more challenging positions, it always motivates me.

I’ve had 3 courses with Tim so far, including the Six Sigma Certificate Course. In my work and educational experience I’ve had the fortune of observing many styles of instruction and leadership.  Tim has displayed strength in both these areas.  He was very well organized and prepared for each class, provided ample breaks between intense learning sessions, and clearly had is heart on ensuring that all students captured the lesson(s).

Tim is an obviously seasoned businessman, and provided a continuous flow of real life business/corporate examples throughout all three courses,  allowing students to better understand the strategy behind the Six Sigma & Data Analytics tools that were being taught.  I see him as being an incredible asset to Harper in the coming years, and am thankful for the opportunity to have had him as an instructor.
