About ICP

ICP's leaders established the Lean Six Sigma consulting practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers (acquired by IBM in 2002). We delivered transformative change to early adopters including GE Capital, Allied Signal, Dow Chemical, Posco Steel, ServiceMaster, and Caterpillar. The need to scale these solutions for smaller organizations has never been greater, given the current economic uncertainty and the need to constantly deliver high quality products and services without margin erosion.
