I have been working with Ijaz as junior colleague for a year or so and have witnessed and experienced great qualities in him. He is expert in multiple knowledge areas and disciplines, main inclusions being Solar Energy, Six sigma methodology, Physical Sciences, Career Development and Volunteering. He is innovative and theme developer but mostly remains focused and goal oriented. He is an exciting person to work with and would certainly add value to any group or organization he joins
Having received my Six Sigma certifications from Ijaz, I know Ijaz to be extremely knowledgeable in the conceptual domains of statistical analysis, comfortable and capable having managed/delivered numerous continuous improvement programs with real bottom lines. I have further had the privilege to co-author a published Six Sigma case study with Ijaz at the completion of my certification, which was an enjoyable collaboration. His generous sense of mentorship, management abilities and scientific expertise will benefit companies and clients he continues to be involved with.
Dr. Ijaz is a consummate Six sigma Master Black belt professional whom I had the good fortune of working with at Perkin Elmer Optoelectronics. I found Ijaz to be an excellent 6-Sigma practitioner in driving Process improvements in a fast paced environment. Dr. Ijaz is equipped with in-depth understanding of Continuous improvement methodologies of Six sigma /Lean towards achieving maximum ROI in shortest period of time. His facilitation and organizational skills are of the highest caliber. He led and supported several Six Sigma/ Lean Black Belt projects within Semiconductor wafer fabrication facility as well managed the implementation of Six Sigma initiatives organization wide across various global sites. Ijaz played a key role in promoting an organization-wide understanding of Six Sigma/ Lean concepts through coaching, mentoring and training of all levels of employees. Driven, demanding and fair are all attributes of Ijaz and his leadership style. He is a leader who wants to win, for his team, his company, and himself. Ijaz takes a genuine interest in his team, helping them to improve their skills and meet their goals. Ijaz easily wins the trust of his colleagues, trainees and team alike. Ijaz would always take time to make sure people understood the topics at hand, and would invest whatever time it would take to coach, and mentor. I felt I learned and grew from my Six sigma training with Ijaz and feel his leadership and mentorship skills and style would be an asset in any company committed to Process and organization effectiveness improvements. Roll that up with great listening skills and a genuine good working demeanor and you have the whole package. In my opinion Dr. Ijaz has the necessary personality and drive to make changes in the environment he works in. He is a dedicated strong performer.
Ijaz was highly-regarded and well-respected at PerkinElmer as a Six Sigma Master Black Belt. He was key in driving the Continuous Improvement culture in the company that resulted in many improvement projects that helped generate significant productivity gains for the company. His expertise in the proper use of tools and application of Six Sigma concepts was well-recognized.
Ijaz is very knowledgeable in the tools of Six Sigma. Although Ijaz and I were located in different areas of PerkinElmer, we worked closely to infuse Six Sigma Methodologies throughout our perspective areas of responsibility. Ijaz is a very good instructor and mentor. He taught and coached many Six Sigma students throughout our PerkinElmer division to completion of their perspective Six Sigma certifications. Ijaz was successful in teaching and coaching on all levels of the Six Sigma toolbox and many co-workers and colleagues benefited from his dedication and knowledge.
Ijaz is a well focussed professional, who, during his activity at PerkinElmer, has co-ordinated the implementation of the Six Sigma Program in different PerkinElmer sites and in the Canada site especially. As Program Leader for the site, he has contributed significantly to the continuous improvement of the productivity as well as to the development of Six Sigma culture within the site. Ijaz has been involved directly in both Six Sigma training, coaching and leading of major projects. Based on these elements, I fully recommend him for a large portfolio of activities such as program management, problem solving, continuous improvement and training/coaching.
