AUDIENCE: From team leaders to executives – representing government, healthcare, business and industry, public schools, and universities who are focused on achieving operational excellence

OVERVIEW: In today’s economic climate, organizations that do not continuously strive to improve and pursue operational excellence will be left behind. Companies can no longer rely on large budgets and are faced with doing more with less. Likewise, leaders are required to be smart and innovative to establish strategies and goals that bring about continuous improvement to pursue operational excellence. This annual conference combines the rich resources of Virginia Tech with an economically vibrant host community.

Session Topics include:

  • Best practices for implementing Lean.
  • Case studies of continuous improvement projects from business and industries, utilities, local government, manufacturing, consortiums, and universities.
  • Leadership strategies for creating a culture of change.
  • Insights on how cross-sector leaders teamed up to create a culture of operational excellence.
  • Three tracks of learning to reflect the three broad aspects of lean: process, leadership and culture.
