Media Release: Specialist oil and gas consultancy hosting specialist Six Sigma seminar

70 - 2010 Dr Jonathan Passmore[1]

AN Aberdeen-based oil and gas consultancy is hosting a seminar in the city to highlight the importance of Six Sigma methodology in business.

Embrion, which is based in Westhill, is holding the session at the end of the month for managers and professionals looking to improve quality, reduce waste, and improve efficiency in their organisations.

Six Sigma is a business management tool used to improve internal strategies and techniques. The process works to identify internal issues to improve productivity and the delivery of services.

Embrion works with Robert Gordon University, and the evening event, on 24 October which is being hosted by RGU, will be led by Embrion consultant, Ceri Harris, a highly-experienced change manager, who has worked with a number of different firms in the oil and gas, financial services and manufacturing sectors.

Managing director of Embrion, Dr Jonathan Passmore, said: “Embrion works with a number of oil and gas companies on Six Sigma processes, and recently won a six-figure contract with a major energy company in Aberdeen.

“Ceri, who is an experienced Six Sigma practitioner is also trained in lean processes, is currently based at their Aberdeen office, and his work will help to ensure the organisation fully understands the current state of their processes and the root cause of any problems, before committing to making changes or improvements.

“Six Sigma is important in the oil and gas industry where the cost of implementing any change can be high, and it is hoped the seminar will educate people about the business tool.”

The Delivering Business Improvement session is part of a series of free seminars being run by Embrion. To book a place email
