Lean Six Sigma is a global business initiative with a focus on eliminating waste and reducing process variation when creating a product or service based upon customer perceived value.

Management and customers within the organization often view meeting planners as “party planners” rather than event professionals. The industry certifications of CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) and CMM (Certificate in Meeting Management) are recognized and valued within the industry, but not by management or HR.

Meeting planners are already incorporating a detail oriented, step-by-step planning process into their events but are not using the terminology and tools of Lean Six Sigma.

The Lean Six Sigma for Meeting Professionals (LSSMP) certification provides a recognizable certification – Lean Six Sigma – that has value beyond the meetings industry. The LSSMP certification will demonstrate your knowledge in dozens of different methods to reduce costs, increase revenue, streamline business processes and improve employee buy-in, all of which leads to a better bottom line.
