Step out of (or into) your comfort zone with this month’s lively topic on performance improvement!

Process improvement, through Lean Six Sigma has dominated the manufacturing industry, quickly spilling into day to day operations. This much we know, but how can it be applied to organizational development, employee development or any process within human resources? The one constant, change, is constantly undergoing change to improve how to do it better, faster, and more impactful. Lean principles can and do work here! 

Join us to learn the key concepts of this growing discipline, and gain insight on how to apply these concepts in your organization through interactive exercises and lively discussion with our very own expert in Continuous Improvement.

During this informative meeting, Mr. McIver will share with us:

  • Learn what continuous improvement is through key concepts and terminology 
  • Explore how these tools/methodologies can be applied to OD/HR Functions
  • Engage in a hands-on exercise
  • Experience a case study – Dycom recruiting and onboarding – lessons learned
