 WVLN In-Person and Live Streamed Events

WVLN In-Person and Live Streamed Event - Lafayette, Indiana 
Wednesday, December 7 - 9:00 AM - 11:30 PM
River City Community Center, 
2842 Old U.S. 231, Lafayette, IN

What a year it has been.  For many of us, there is more that needs to be done and we have fewer resources to get it all accomplished. 
Some of the things we struggle with:
  • I have too many things to focus on.
  • How do I get results and move the metrics?
  • How do I prioritize?
  • What do I do next?

Brian Hudson will be presenting and discussing some tools and techniques to utilize, to help identify the priority items on which to focus, how to clarify the work to be done, and how to drive to successful completion.

We will also continue our discussions on lean tools and philosophies and how to get more done in less time, with reduced resources.  This is an event not only for lean practitioners but for anyone striving to prioritize and add focus to their work life.

We will be meeting in person and live streaming for this event.  Plan to join us in person if possible.  Our live attendance has been slowly growing, but we are not close to our pre-covid numbers. 

Top 5 Reasons to Attend In-Person

Brian is with Franciscan Health.  He is a graduate of Purdue University in Industrial Technology and spent 15 years as a Manufacturing Engineer and Production Manager prior to joining Franciscan Health in 2006.  He is currently the Director of Strategy Deployment for Western Indiana, and works with hospital leaders on improvement initiatives in all areas of the ministry.

Brian is also a long-time member of WVLN and has led the WVLN Steering Committee for many years.

WVLN is a state-wide, member-driven group, focused on applying Lean principles and continuous improvement methods to eliminate waste in business processes so member organizations can gain a competitive edge.  WVLN helps train, connect and encourage members on their lean journeys through the exchange of knowledge and experience.

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 and after the meeting.

Whether you’re new to process improvement and lean or an experienced practitioner, join us for our next meeting. Connect with peers and share experiences of implementing Lean processes in a wide variety of fields, from manufacturing to healthcare to finance.

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