    Harrison Weed has over 30 years of consulting, program management and instructional experience with industrial, university and US government clients. He spent 18 years at Motorola as an internal statistical and quality improvement resource for Motorola's product businesses, manufacturing lines and Research and Development organizations.

    Harrison Weed's professional career began as an operations research analyst with the Military Intelligence Branch of the United States Army. From there he became an Assistant Professor at Dartmouth College, teaching courses in mathematics and statistics. Harrison became a Senior Consulting Statistician in the Mathtech Division of Mathematica, Inc. He then became Director of the Statistical Research Group at Martin Marietta Data Systems, where he managed the consulting staff of statistical and computer professionals applying advanced techniques of statistics, mathematics and computer science for clients in U.S. government agencies. His major accomplishments at Martin Marietta were the development and deployment by a major client of in-house statistical resources and the successful application of statistical, probability and operation research methods to client problems.

    Harrison then moved to Motorola, Inc., first as a consulting statistician for the Manufacturing and R&D Groups in Semiconductor Products, where he was responsible for the development of internal statistical resources from the engineering population (a program model for future Green and Black Belt development). He was assigned to Sematech's Statistical Methods Group, where he participated on process improvement teams and led development of a statistical curriculum for engineers and management that became a model for Sematech's member companies. He was chairman of the committee that developed the Six Sigma Black Belt program at Motorola and was among the first 20 recognized Black Belts. Harrison became a Manager of Quality Systems and Statistical Methods within Semiconductor Products, where major accomplishments included the increased utilization of statistical and quality methods within the R&D organization and improved capability and stability of manufacturing processes. Harrison was then appointed a Six Sigma Curriculum Program Manager for Motorola University and, as such, was a project manager and technical consultant for development and deployment of a 4-week Black Belt program, a 6-day Green Belt program, and a 3-day management champion's workshop. He was responsible for the management of Motorola's Quality Systems course portfolio and traveled worldwide consulting with Motorola businesses, customers and suppliers in their implementation of Six Sigma improvement campaigns and the development of Green and Black Belts. He is proficient in several statistical software packages, including MINITAB, JMP and SAS.
