Sessions

The great depth and breadth of our sessions means that you will always find something relevant— an idea, a concept or a success story—that you can use. We showcase industry leaders who are articulate advocates for change and will present to you how you can achieve the change you seek! Traditional presentations are given by practitioners. Attend as many presentations as you would like, there is no need to sign up in advance. We’ve also gathered experienced continuous improvement pioneers as hosts, panelists and presenters. Join any one of these interactive sessions around topics of special interest to our members.
