Educational Gathering of Lean Six Sigma and Process Improvement Leaders on January 17, 2013

Columbus, OH (December 7, 2012) – On Thursday, January 17, 2013,, the leading global provider of online Lean Six Sigma training and Blended Learning technology, and Magic Hat Consulting, a niche consultancy specializing in process improvement, will sponsor a one-day executive briefing on design excellence at the Villanova University Conference Center outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This free educational and networking event is open to process improvement executives and deployment leaders interested in the rare opportunity to discuss excellence in design, share best design practices and network with local peers. The conference, held from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, will feature practical presentations and workshops intended to help organizations to harness proper design methods, tools and techniques.

The Philadelphia metropolitan area is home to a rich collection of service, healthcare, and manufacturing organizations committed to continuous improvement of their processes and products. But with shrinking travel budgets and fewer industry conferences, it’s harder than ever for Lean, Six Sigma, and other quality professionals to meet with their peers and discuss the latest innovations in design. and Magic Hat Consulting will fill that void for process improvement executives and designers in the Philadelphia area through day-long agenda of presentations geared to engage and inform. The Villanova University Conference Center was selected for this Lean Six Sigma and process improvement event due to its excellent facilities and central location to the tri-state area of eastern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey and Delaware.

MoreSteam produced three similar events in 2012 in Boston, MA, Houston, TX and Phoenix, AZ, and is very pleased to be co-sponsoring this event for the first time with Pennsylvania-based Magic Hat Consulting. The morning program will feature Lean Six Sigma leaders presenting on different aspects of design in manufacturing, healthcare, and services and will conclude with a moderated. In the afternoon, participants can choose from one of two interactive workshops from Bill Hathaway of and Jack Merritt of Magic Hat Consulting.  Breakfast and lunch are included, and the event will conclude with a post-event early evening networking reception.

This executive briefing is open to all continuous improvement leaders and managers. There is no cost to attend due to the briefing sponsorship, but registration is capped at the first 40 attendees. The hosts expect a full audience. Individuals interested in attending the event can visit the event information site:
