Conference Keynote: Des Moines Public School
Lean methods and practices have been essential ingredients in the recipe for market competitiveness for tens of thousands of manufacturers and business service firm across the world. These great ideas help make our flights safer, our food more affordable, and our clothes last longer. They can also make us better public servants and educators! Lean leads us to the ultimate win/win: we become better stewards of our resources, and we achieve greater enjoyment and satisfaction in our work.
Think you can do more better? (The alternative is doing less, worse – choose wisely.) Then be sure to join the Community of Excellence in Wisconsin as we present the seventh annual Lean Government Conference hosted by the Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence. This year’s conference features our best line-up ever, including:
