iSixSigma Founder Promises Rebirth of Lean Six Sigma Website
Readers will again have access to the best Six Sigma, Lean and operational excellence resources as well as more ways to share, learn and discover
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. (Nov. 7, 2011) – iSixSigma.com, the leading online community and resource portal dedicated to Six Sigma, Lean and other operational excellence methodologies, is back under the ownership of the website’s creator, Michael Cyger. Plans are under way to “rebuild the functionality of iSixSigma.com from the ground up,” Cyger said, “taking advantage of the tens of thousands of articles, tools and resources already created.”
iSixSigma, as well as several other Internet properties, were sold to Schofield Media Group by Cyger in 2008. Now that he has reacquired the assets of the website, iSixSigma.com will become part of Web X.0 Media, an Internet publishing company Cyger launched in 2009.
After eight years operating the largest Lean Six Sigma portal and as a Six Sigma veteran of GE and Citigroup, Cyger is rooted in process improvement. “I’m excited to be back involved in the Six Sigma and operational excellence industry,” Cyger said. “I see this as a tremendous opportunity.”
The iSixSigma founder plans to work closely with the community during the next month to develop innovative features to help the community share, learn and achieve higher levels of operational excellence faster. “When iSixSigma.com went offline in August, I received many calls from people in the industry who wanted to see iSixSigma.com get back on track. I appreciated the outpouring of support and look forward to serving this exceptional community,” Cyger said.
