Dr Murison is a Victorian-based scientist who joined Professionals Australia earlier this year. She intends to put the $500 towards the cost of undertaking Lean Sigma Green Belt training with the University of Melbourne. On how she expects to benefit from professional development in this area, Dr Murison said: “The Lean Six Sigma training at the University of Melbourne would enable me to improve at my current role, increase my promotability and open new career opportunities for me in positions with more people and project responsibility. This training will extend my skill project management skill set in terms of both workflow optimisation and people management. In my previous position, I enjoyed the benefit of working with Lean Six Sigma trained project managers and innovation coaches. The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training would give me new tools to help optimise workflows, reduce waste, hit better right-first-time targets and lead new product development projects in my current work environment. My informal experience in these types of projects before is valuable, but without a current mentor, formal training would be a huge boost to my abilities and confidence to prosecute these process improvement and innovation projects. Project Management certification would be an added skill, on top of my previous training in team management and conflict resolution, that would allow me to grow as a leader and manager. This will help me excel as a scientist and project leader. I very much appreciate the support of Professionals Australia in extending my leadership and management skills in this way.” Congratulations Julie!
