Lean Product Design

May 9th 2019 07:30 am to 10:00 am at Wurth Adams

Whether you are a contract manufacturer or produce your own branded products the goals are the same: design products that meet customer needs and are simple to manufacture and assemble. Unfortunately, products can be over engineered or lack standardized parts and material types. Likewise, it can be easy to forget to evaluate the characteristics of an assembly or attribute criticality when you’re pressured to meet customer demands. Join us to leverage the experience of senior  practitioners and learn what has worked and what hasn’t when introducing quality products, at the lowest cost, on time. Seating is limited.

Leadership for Leads & Supervisors

June 13th 2019 07:30 am to 10:00 am at Boston Scientific Maple Grove

How do you set others up for success? People join good companies, but stay because of great bosses and as a leader your success depends on your ability to help your team be successful. But it can be tough to know what tasks to delegate and what to complete yourself. Once you get that figured out you must effectively communicate your expectations, ask how you can help, provide resources, and follow up. Then remember to recognize performance often. Join us to leverage the experience of your peers - so you can boost retention and be more than a great boss by becoming a great leader!

Learning to Recognize & Remove Waste

July 11th 2019 07:30 am to 9:30 am at Hennepin Technical College Brooklyn Park Campus

How do you help others see waste? Training all employees how to recognize everyday forms of waste could considerably increase your pace of improvement but barriers always get in the way. How can you get everyone to speak the same improvement language and how do you make sure what’s been identified gets acted on? Join us to hear examples from local practitioners with different operating environments and company cultures, how they have helped their employees be on the same page to really see waste.
