Barry and Genie will share “What’s in it for you?” and the impact you can make for your organization or those you work with. They will share their combined experience of over 50 years highlighting what Examiners learn, what Examiners contribute to the assessment process, and why being an Examiner can help you meet your goals. Yes, the transfer of learning from being an Examiner can positively affect all aspects of your life – come learn about being an Examiner and consider it for your personal growth and success.
The second presentation will shift focus from the individual Examiner topic to a focus on an organization that elects to pursue excellence using assessments and the Baldrige criteria. Barry will share his insights on the positive difference made for an organization as well as candid responses to the questions: “What does it really take to do this?” and “How do we get started?”.

Fabrice is a licensed professional engineer and holds a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and a Master in Business Administration from the University of Miami. Fabrice founded and manages ProcessZen Consulting. His mission is to help you facilitate, improve and transform the organization to get the most out your existing systems, processes & resources to achieve optimal levels of satisfaction for stakeholders, employees and customers. His publication “Kaizen Kanban” presents a visual facilitation approach that leverages fundamental quality and lean tools to compile prioritized project pipelines for organizations.

Fabrice frequently presents at conferences where he emphasizes the importance of adapting fundamental tools, improvement approaches and mindsets to meet today’s innovation, quality and project management challenges.

Fabrice holds the following certifications:

• PMI Certified PMP and Agile Practitioner
• APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management
• ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, Quality Auditor, Quality Engineer and Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence

What will the audience walk away with after attending your presentation?
Those within various levels of an organization, from supervisors and managers through executives, in a wide range of industries will find the concepts and approaches discussed in Kaizen Kanban useful to drive performance improvement.

The practical guidance provided will help strengthen the facilitation and problem-solving skills of organizational members. In so doing, organizations can transform themselves from firefighters and reactionaries to proactive identifiers of opportunities for improvement and effective problem solvers.

This approach is designed to complement and enhance the effectiveness of quality, lean, continuous improvement, and project management initiatives that may already be in place in an organization.

In this session, we will discuss how fundamental tools and techniques from various toolboxes can be combined into a coherent, dynamic, and customizable improvement strategy. Our unique approach to facilitation leverages best practices and minimizes the unnecessary customization of well-known tools. This enables us to combine various toolboxes and the experience of participants to quickly identify improvement opportunities for entire value streams.
