We are seeking dynamic, engaging, and knowledgeable presenters for the 2017 Implementing Lean for Operational Excellence conference.
The audience will be made up of team leaders to executives, and all levels in between, representing local government, healthcare, education, utilities, and manufacturing. Participants are seeking new learning about lean, leadership, and process improvement.
The objective of the presentation is to convey your knowledge/experience on applying lean principles, leadership practices, process improvement measures, and/or creating a culture change. The presentation should inspire and empower participants to embrace and implement lean and process improvement within their organizations.
Presentations should be 60 minutes in length and delivered as
interactive. The timeframe will include an introduction, the
presentation, time for questions and answers, and an opportunity for
evaluation. Attendees should leave with specific knowledge and skills
about various aspects of lean and how they can apply the principles
within their place of work. Presentations should provide attendees with
helpful information and not be used to promote a specific business,
product, or service.
