George Saiz, president and CEO of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence and a long time practitioner of enterprise excellence, will share, through his years of experience as a senior executive from the medical device industry and now with AME, the importance of equipping your employees with the tools of CI, empowering them with the opportunity to improve and engaging them with the desire to make a difference.

Key learning objectives will include:
- The role the tools of CI play and how to equip your employees to be competent and confident with these tools.
- The importance of developing an environment conducive to empowering employees to improve.
- The engagement crisis facing U.S. workers based on Gallup survey data and how leaders can respond.
