Networking, by definition, is a supportive system of sharing information among individuals or groups having a common interest. Next week, IQPC is hosting one of the biggest networking opportunities of the year. It’s the 2008 Lean Six Sigma & Process Improvement Summit. This year hundreds of process improvement professionals will converge in sunny Florida to make new contacts, share experiences and celebrate some of the best improvement projects in the industry. I’ve attended the summit every year for the past five years and have always come away with new ideas, innovative approaches and a fist full of business cards from people all over the world. Hearing and seeing others succeed is inspiring and energizing.
So, if you are in the neighborhood, drop by the summit. It’s a great way to keep up with what is going on in the world of process improvement and even a better way to get involved in shaping process improvement for the future. Hope to see you there!
