London, UK– Friday 14th January 2011 – Further evidence of the decline of purist Six Sigma as Business Process Excellence community continues to grow.

On Friday, January 14th, Six Sigma IQ, the world’s fastest growing online community and leading event provider will complete its planned name change to Process Excellence Network. Called a ‘critical turning point’ in the group’s continued transformation strategy and global growth, the Process Excellence Network, a division of IQPC, provides essential information on the development of Process Excellence including Business Process Management (BPM), Lean, Change Management, Operational Excellence, Six Sigma and Risk Management across multiple continents. Content is provided in both online format and through face-to-face events.

This rebrand reflects the evolution of Process Excellence and organisations across the globe adopting a multifaceted approach to generating ROI. Vanessa Lovatt, Director of the Process Excellence Network said "This is a defining moment for the Business Process Excellence community. Over the past two years we have been working hard under the brand of Six Sigma IQ, a division of IQPC, to bring process excellence professionals from around the world closer together through our online and event business. We now recognise the need to move on from our former six sigma identity and to build the newly formed Process Excellence Network around the needs of our members and customers.

"IQPC’s trusted reputation is one that we plan to continue leveraging in 2011 and beyond, but now is the right time to present the Process Excellence Network, or PEX Network as we’re being called, to the community to provide a central place for the many aspects of process excellence to be discussed, examined, and adopted. Our ultimate goal is to enable our members and customers to generate measurable results through Process Excellence and to seek actionable solutions to specific process problems through worldwide mass collaboration."

The newly named Process Excellence Network plans its global growth and development through its online and events business. Future additions to the group include:

  • The introduction of face-to-face events in the Middle East, Asia, and South America, almost doubling the current event stronghold that the organisation holds in Europe and America.
  • A series of online events to enable attendance to delegates still restricted by travel bans in the wake of the financial crisis.
  • Development of advisory panels around the world, expected to generate a global presence, but with a local focus in each region.
