Improving Processes, Increasing Productivity | Breakfast Webinar

February 9, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

It’s a new year, and many of us are eagerly looking forward to proactively managing, proving, and growing our teams, departments, or organizations. Given the challenges we continue to face (such as staffing, supply chain, customer demands, and budgetary constraints), the importance of process improvement, efficiency, and productivity has only increased.

The discussion will kick off with Gary Floss, a retired senior leader with decades of experience leading improvement efforts at businesses such as Marvin Windows & Doors, Medtronic, and Control Data.  Gary will provide an overview of different continuous improvement frameworks, methods, and tools currently being used by all sectors and industries.  He will explore three categories of improvement tools: quality control, quality/continuous improvement, planning/innovation – a “menu” of process improvement tools in contemporary use today.

We will then hear a “case study” from Olmsted County, which is using a combination of tools for their continuous improvement approach.

After the two opening speakers, we will explore different improvement/productivity tools used by several types of organizations (specific speakers TBA):

  • Eli Maloley, Vivacity Tech (St. Paul)
  • Monument Health (Rapid City)
  • Olmsted County (Rochester)

The panel will share their insights on how to get started, what lessons they learned, and any tips or suggestions for improving processes, productivity and efficiency.

This session is Thursday, February 9 from 8:00-9:00 CT (optional networking and mingling 7:45-8:00) using Zoom MEETING. Grab your coffee and breakfast and join us for a rich discussion. Free for PEN/SPAC/WCPE members; $20 for non-members.
