Allison King, Ph.D., BCBA
When: Friday, August @ 12PM EST
Title: Lean Six Sigma and Organizational Behavior Management
Certification in Lean and Six Sigma is sometimes recommended to individuals pursuing a career in Organizational Behavior Management. In this webinar, Dr. Allison King will help to answer the questions behavior analysts interested in OBM careers often have about Lean and Six Sigma, such as, “What are the benefits of Lean and Six Sigma certification for OBM professionals?” “What is Lean and Six Sigma all about?” And, “What type of work does one do with this certification?” Participants will learn some of the key Lean and Six Sigma concepts, the connections between Lean Six Sigma and OBM, the different certification levels, and examples of the work that a behavior analyst certified in Lean and Six Sigma might do.
Allison holds a Ph.D. in behavior analysis from Florida Institute of Technology. She spent the majority of her graduate career focusing on OBM: applications of behavior analysis to issues within businesses. One of her most exciting experiences involved providing OBM consulting for a large health system. While there, she earned her Lean Green Belt certification for leading a project to reduce preventable patient falls and developed and taught their first OBM and Behavioral Lean workshops. She also coached hospital leaders how to apply these methods to improve patient outcomes linked to Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) reimbursement. Allison currently enjoys a career as the Vice President of Professional Development at ABA Technologies, Inc., where she gets to apply her passion: getting creative with the science of behavior by applying it to new areas, and using that very science to improve how we teach it and share its innovations with the world. She also occasionally works as an adjunct faculty at Florida Institute of Technology to train and supervise upcoming behavior analysts in OBM and instructional design.
