About the Program:

We know the statistical and quality tools available at our disposal. But, what do we have to start a team quality effort, get teams moving, particularly from a stalled position and generate great outcomes from a productive team?

We will explore options to try, with teams, to get them formed, energized, communicating and solving.

We will look at each phase of problem solving and discuss the possibilities to keep teams engaged and functioning at a high level. We will also be looking at the impact of change management and culture. We will leave with applicable, actionable ideas to revitalize teams and get through projects with a vigorous approach to the constant journey of continuous improvement.
