Thursday September 20. 2018 Meeting Announcement
Section 1506 is pleased to announce our next meeting to be held on Thursday September 20, 2018 at 5:30 at the UNF Conference Center. The main presentation will be provided by Robin Lawton, an internationally recognized author, executive coach and expert in creating rapid strategic alignment between enterprise objectives and customer priorities.
“The Strategy and Tools for Transformation Leaders"
Your challenge as a 21st Century leader of excellence is to transcend tired practices of the past. It is not enough to improve processes, solve problems and run projects to achieve minimum standards, reduced variation and low costs. The new leader is impatient to achieve “impossible” outcomes, excite customers, engage employees and set new measures of success others can only dream about. It is a tall order requiring an entirely new focus, paradigm and tools. Attend this thought-leading, interactive and entertaining session by one of ASQ’s top-rated presenters and authors to start down the practical road to insightful cultural transformation.
Success requires a transformation system as well as a systems approach to transformation. This session will provide you with both. You will apply unique tools to your own situation and see eye-opening examples others have obtained. Learn how multiple practitioners got lightening fast results such as $20 million in savings, $8 million in new monthly revenue, response time reductions of 90%, raving fans and recognition for best-in-class enterprise performance. If you are an executive, change agent, innovation leader or Lean Six Sigma MBB impatient for transformative results, this jargon-free session is for you. Take-aways you can immediately apply include:
* An Excellence IQ. You will complete this at the start of the session, pin-pointing areas to immediately address.
* 10 Steps to Customer-Centered Excellence: Your road map and tools.
* Six Leadership Levers for transformation: Eliminate the sources of ambiguity, confusion, chaos and conflict that prevent cultural change and ISO success.
