October 8: Speaking at Seattle ASQ Meeting

correction: I had typed “October 10” for the date. That was my mistake. It is October 8th.

I will be speaking at the October 8 meeting of the Seattle ASQ on the topic of “The Continuous Improvement Ideal: Principles to Engage Your People.”

From the ASQ event page:

You may have heard of Toyota’s principle of stopping the line when an anomaly occurs, and you know that an engaged workforce is an asset to any organization. During Mark’s presentation, “The Continuous Improvement Ideal” on October 8th, you will take a deep dive into how these two seemingly separate concepts are actually intertwined and can drive day-to-day continuous improvement. This process of continuous incremental improvement engages people in ways that are more powerful than chartered process-improvement projects. You will come away with the common denominators that make these concepts universal in manufacturing and in service environments.

If you would like to attend, you can register here. The event is open to all.

  1. I would not be able to attend your presentation but am very interested in the content. Do you plan on posting the information on your site? If not, is there anyway to get an audio recording or transcript of your presentation?
