Big data and machine learning are all the buzz. Are these new techniques or are they something that can supplement existing process improvement tools? In this session, we will discuss what data science tools are and how they can be used to advance your process improvement efforts. From basic process analysis and six sigma tools, to working with large data sets, we will show how some of the most cutting-edge techniques are both easy to learn and deploy in support of your process improvement efforts. We will talk about how to use data science starting at the strategic, top of the house and then down to the tool level, where the rubber meets the road. Participants will leave the session understanding what tools are available, how to find them, and how to use them.

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.
