The Mumbai Campus Ambassadors team met on Sunday (15th July, 2012) at Café Mangii in Powai to discuss: 1.

Allocation of various colleges across Mumbai and 2. Strategies for the Social Media Campaign. The colleges were allotted based on Mutual understanding and Contacts which could be leveraged in specific colleges and a consensus was reached. The Social Media Campaign was intensely discussed for over the next 3 hours and we were able to come up with some constructive ideas. The objective of the Campaign was zeroed down to increasing the number of members on the ‘Lean Six Sigma Q & A’ group on LinkedIn to more than 10000 members. The main focus for this campaign is to generate pull for B school students towards the group so that it creates an interest among them towards Six Sigma and a desire to pursue the various certifications to enhance career opportunities. It has been observed that the number of Facebook users among the B-school student community is much higher than those using LinkedIn; hence a mechanism is needed to push people from Facebook to LinkedIn. Also an easy way to attract the attention of student community is by starting a competition and making it necessary to Like FB group and/or Join the LinkedIn group.
