Joseph Antiga
Continuous Improvement Professional, Crayola LLC, Easton, PA, USA

Joseph Antiga would consider himself a natural problem solver. He has spent the first 10 years of his career in several different roles within Crayola’s manufacturing departments. From front-line supervision to leading large teams across several processes, Joe has always relied on his natural abilities to quickly and efficiently solve problems. Joe was first introduced to Lean Six Sigma in 2012 when he received his Yellow Belt certification and served as a team member on a project that greatly reduced scrap in a plastics injection molding process. Since his introduction to Lean Six Sigma, Joe has built upon his natural abilities and has relied on “Lean thinking” to help him become a better leader, problem solver, and team member. Joe has continued his learning and anticipates receiving his Black belt later this year. In late 2015, Joe was asked to join the continuous improvement team at Crayola and since has worked on teams across the company to introduce Lean Six Sigma. Outside of work, Joe is a devoted husband and father of 2 wonderful boys.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
