Alpha Technical Associates
Daniel Stanley/Tom Saad
By Appointment Only
Dearborn, MI 48128
(313) 912-6242

Dan Stanley and Tom Saad, Salaried Ford Motor Co. employees in Dearborn witnessed first hand the dramatic changes in the automotive industry over the past few years. They have transformed that experience into a vision that they hope will change the way local companies conduct their business as well as providing Six Sigma training to individuals enhancing their resumes and marketability. As Six Sigma Master Black Belts, they formed Dearborn based Alpha Technical Associates, LLC to train and mentor professionals in the Six Sigma discipline. Many of those individuals had recently lost their jobs due to economic downsizing, so offering Greenbelt Certification became a genuine resume builder. Experiencing the repeated success of the Six Sigma methodology, Dan and Tom wondered why this effective problem solving tool, that major corporations all over the world utilized, couldn’t be distilled and presented to small business in a way that would allow them to experience the benefits without the expense. This inspired their current book, dedicated to providing the principles and concepts of Six Sigma without the formal training. The result is their recent publication, “The Independent Business Owner’s Guide to Success”. Just as large corporations have reduced waste, improved quality and increased profit margins using Six Sigma, Alpha Technical Associates now equips the small business owner with the same advantage. Alpha Technical Associates looks forward to working with the Dearborn business community. Visit their Website for information on upcoming local seminars.
