Strategic partnerships and alliances
A program like this doesn’t exist, can’t survive in a vacuum. Over time, a number of critical and valuable partnerships have evolved:
- Moresteam (https://www.moresteam.com/): Perhaps the most foundational is our relationship with Moresteam.com. Dr. Sink turned to Moresteam and William Hathaway, in 2005 while at MDS. A sound and resilient Blended Training and Development Model has been built with offerings provided by Moresteam.
- The Poirier Group (http://www.thepoiriergroup.com/): Scott and David Poirier have been ‘partners’ since the early 80’s. Scott has worked for David in a number of capacities over the years. Since 2007 a very effective, synergistic relationship has evolved between our ILSS/ISE program and David’s growing consulting business. Several of David’s key principals are graduates of our program and one serves on the ILSS/ISE Review Board. Most recently TPG and OSU collaborated on a case study oriented presentation at the annual Industrial and Systems Engineering conference in Nashville. This presentation is posted in our Publications and Case Studies Section of this site. (https://ileansigma.osu.edu/publications-and-case-studies)
- Center for Operational Excellence (http://fisher.osu.edu/centers/coe):
- World Confederation of Productivity Sciences (http://www.wcps.info/):
In addition partnerships with various sponsoring organizations have evolved through the outstanding ability of out students to improve processes at lead projects. Without the help & partnerships of these organization the program would have been impossible to sustain.
