ABSTRACT

Its three o’clock in the morning and you can’t sleep...again. The wind tears at your window and anxiety rips at your guts. Earning your place as an effective quality improvement leader can be a real horror show, fraught with perilous decisions, looming danger, and a host of boogeymen waiting in the shadows. That thing that goes bump in the night is killing your organization and stalling your career path – so step into the light and send it back to hell. Using strategic, operational, and tactical best practices from the greatest leaders of the macabre, you will learn how to: 

  • Avoid GROUPTHINK and LEAD the pack; 
  • Discard your mask(s) and DEFINE your leadership STYLE; 
  • Discover your MISSION and GOALS with killer ACCURACY; 
  • KNOW your TEAM members (their dreams and nightmares); and, 
  • Make expectations CLEAR and achieve consistent RESULTS. 
Don’t be a victim – exorcise your fears. Join us…

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.
