Rolls-Royce Training Facility.

Register for November 14th meeting

Aneatria Bailey from Rolls-Royce will be sharing her expertise and experience with one of improvement's hottest topics, Design Sprints.  Her presentation is entitled:  Design Sprint 2.0 based on the book, ‘Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days, by Jake Knapp.

Think of Kaizen, Design Thinking and a step by step process and you start having an idea about  Design Sprints are all about.  Developed by Google Ventures, Design Sprints are providing solutions in numerous industries.  If you have done Kaizen Events before, much of the Design Sprint process will seem familiar.

In addition to a stellar presentation, we will have a hands-on exercise covering part of the design sprint process.

Join us for a full morning of learning and thought provoking ideas.

Register for November 14th meeting

As fabulous as the presentations are in providing new ideas and training that we can actively use in our organization and personal lives, the profound power of the group is the opportunity to meet, engage, and network with highly motivated individuals and leaders driving improvement in their organizations.

And there will be time for networking, discussion and sharing before, during and after the meeting.

We are looking to benchmark companies who have implemented Total Productive Maintenance as part of their Lean deployment.  If your company is doing TPM and you would like to be part of this benchmarking group, please contact Humberto DeLuca at Lilly or email me and I will make the introductions.

Non-members of WVLN can attend one or two of our meetings as guests (at no-cost), so feel free to invite a friend/peer who might have interest in attending this special program.

Note: We are always looking for member companies to present an improvement project.  Do you have a project you would like to share with the group?  Do you have a subject you are passionate and knowledgeable about and would like to share? Drop me an email and we will fit you in during an upcoming meeting.
