The Maryland World Class Consortia holds regular meetings each quarter for members, potential members, supporters, and guests.  Each meeting is a half-day "mini-seminar" that provide new developments among Consortia members, examples of World Class tools in action, and networking with active practitioners.  Continental breakfast and lunch are included.

The agenda typically includes Consortia news updates, an invited guest speaker, a Consortia member story, and plenty of shared learning.

The agenda for this meeting:

  • Joe Thomas of MWCC member company Phenix Technologies will describe his company's lean deployment progress and the early results of the lean journey they have recently just begun.
  • Kelly Petrock of General Systems Consulting notes that becoming world class requires much more than simply deploying tools into the organization. Creating organizations that are both more satisfying and more productive places to work requires the cultivation of a "Climate for Engagement".  Kelly will detail toos for climate assessment and techniques for creating a climate where lean can flourish. 
  • Manuel Baerga will describe his recent work deploying Lean Six Sigma within a division of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  Process improvement within the government can be hard, to say the least. The complex processes, challenging organizational structure, longstanding culture, and network of stakeholders are less than ideal conditions.  For a heartening glimpse of dramatic positive change, plan on attending this presentation. 

Continential breakfast is included with your registration.  A served networking lunch is available for an additional fee.

Hilton Baltimore MWI Airport directions are here.
