Lean Sigma Pros LLC: Process Improvement through Science and Inclusiveness

Thomas Warren, CEO, Lean Sigma Pros LLCThomas Warren, CEO
The proverbial 'change is the only constant' paced along at its own pace until COVID-19 put this maxim on the fast lane in the enterprise world. In today’s pivot or perish scenario, companies are required to ensure optimized flow of movement, innovation, integration of ideas for sustained business success.

For more than 25 years, process improvement expert Thomas Warren has helped many companies from across industries scale new heights in business performance. Warren brings to bear his vast hands-on experience as management consultant, executive coach, leadership trainer, and mentor to enable clients to challenge status quo, overcome process workflow predicaments, and achieve continuous improvement. In the last 12 years, Warren has kept himself busy integrating Lean Sigma in Fortune 500 companies, including Chevron Corporation. As one of the first ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belts, he is at the helm of Lean Sigma Pros as the CEO, leading the company to bring a positive impact on the client company, from the strategic and cultural perspectives.

“As Napoleon Hills once said, wealth can be created if it is backed by a mastermind group. After all, synergy is not just 1 person + 1 person is not equal to two but three, four, or five persons,” says Warren. And what better way to build synergy than to have a culturally-rich team that brings unique experiences, mindsets, and values. While firms do a decent job in diversity, they often meet their waterloo in ensuring inclusivity in the team. “Coming from the Houston metropolitan area that has the highest diversity, I can easily say that inclusion is still lacking.

Leadership teams typically take their teams to barbeques, dinners, and what not, but individual behavior is back to square one when employees get back to office the next Monday. Consequently, the business improvement programs aren’t going anywhere,” says Warren. “Businesses need a conductor who can keep the people to row in the same direction with same intensity and speed.” This is where Lean Sigma Pros proves valuable.

“As an Asian American, I have lived D&I throughout my life and bring the same experiences to drive value to our clients,” adds Warren. “And my experience as quality and manufacturing engineer who has seen the implementation of Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma allows me and my team to easily decipher what needs to be done. Lean Sigma Pros empowers clients to believe any adversity brings an equivalent or greater benefit.”

During client interactions, Lean Sigma Pros understands clients’ operational challenges. And if the client doesn’t have any clue for the ailments, the company does the research and enlightens clients about the remedial measures. It aids lean implementation problems with a clear overall development roadmap model. Lean Sigma Pros brings proven frameworks to define, measure, analyze, improve, and control through D&I. Through the communication and involvement of the team and management, it establishes the foundation to nurture an excellent lean Sigma program. Further, it educates and trains the client teams through various drills and assignments to ensure they can unlock the potential of lean sigma on their own. The drills and projects help each team member to bind with each other and solve real problems for the company together.

Lean Sigma Pros' vision of the future is collaboration and affiliation between different entities under one umbrella and delivering systems, methodologies but at a local level. This will ensure the firm's presence nationwide with its knowledge base and nationwide systems available to all. In addition, it plans expansion to other metropolitan areas and enters into franchising to train Lean Sigma practitioners in the Lean Sigma methodologies. Besides, Warren has been nominated as the corporate fellow for the University of Houston MBA program that focuses on project management and process improvement.
