Moore Allison




Moore was first certified as a Black Belt instructor in 1999 while working for Motorola and has subsequently trained and coached hundreds of people across a broad range of organisation types at Green, Black and Master Black Belt level.  He led many Lean Six Sigma projects at Motorola including large (>£1M) internal improvements as well as European inter-site projects. Later consulting assignments included a year as an MBB in Norwich Union.

Moore worked in the Advanced Manufacturing Technology group at Digital Equipment Corporation and then joined Motorola where he was Process Engineering Manager responsible for capacity, quality and new product introduction until he assumed the full time role of Continuous Improvement Leader. This involved driving best practice across the business as well as cross-site standardisation and sitting on the global steering committee responsible for Lean Six Sigma strategy. Among specific achievements was a programme to deliver site Sigma/CpK Improvement to 5.7 sigma. This was the best sigma performance worldwide. The success of this project can be attributed to influencing and engaging people throughout the organisation using a wide range of Lean Six Sigma tools such as Change Management, Process Mapping and statistical tools such as Design of Experiments.  The project was presented at the Worldwide Black Belt Symposium in Dublin, March 2000.

On leaving Motorola, Moore founded Six Sigma Scotland, worked as a Master Black Belt for Rath & Strong Management Consultants and then joined Catalyst in 2006 where he is now Director of Learning Solutions. Moore is a Quality Scotland Partner in Excellence and a leader of the British Quality Foundation’s Lean Six Sigma Academy. He has a BSc and PhD in Industrial Engineering, both from Queen’s University Belfast and is a qualified EFQM Assessor. International training experience includes Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East.
