The Maryland World Class Consortia holds regular meetings each quarter for members, potential members, supporters, and guests.  Each meeting is a half-day "mini-conference" that provide new developments among Consortia members, examples of World Class tools in action, and networking with active practitioners.  Our speakers this quarter:

Personal Kanban: Lean for the Individual

We cannot work beyond our capacity, yet we frequently take on too much.  Our true work levels are often invisible.  The quality of our professional and personal lives are suffering.  Why? Jim Benson, author and creator of Personal Kanban, will share his experiences working with people from government, finance, software, retail, and more.  Jim will describe how lean principles can be used to make the office work of teams and individuals more efficient, effective, and productive.

Toyota Kata: Improving How We Improve

Jeff Fuchs, Director of the Maryland World Class Consortia, will describe recent developments in understanding the secrets of continuous improvement.  Mike Rother, author of Toyota Kata, details secrets of the Toyota Production System that have eluded many practitioners for decades.  The keys to success are simple, however, and easy to develop and use to improve every improvement effort.  Jeff has recently returned from weeks of study and application of the Toyota Kata method, and will share what he has learned in an in-depth and interactive discussion.
