Building a Superior Improvement Program Track

Tim Diggs

“Progress cannot be generated when you are satisfied with existing situations.”
– Taiichi Ohno.

Did you know 85% of improvement programs fail over time or revert back to their initial state? Superior improvement programs are the 15% that have lasting and successful results. Whether you are evaluating the health of your current improvement program or just getting started, the Creating a Superior Improvement Program Track is your opportunity to know what you will need to have a successful and sustained improvement program. This track will take you from setting goals and developing improvement measures, to how to identify and investigate problems, to hearing how the first high-reliability organization was built. If we settle for “good enough,” improvement will stop.  Create a superior program that will bring sustained results. Connect with the track leader, Tim Diggs, on LinkedIn to learn more about this track.
