ABOUT THE CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT & INNOVATION CONFERENCE
Salina sits in the central part of our beautiful state. We feel that leadership in improvement and innovation also needs to sit in the central part of our state. All organizations strive to produce results, but producing short-term results does little to move us toward our goals. Product quality, service superiority, and increased contribution to the bottom line are all marks of organizational excellence.
The Fourth Annual 2017 Continuous Improvement and Innovation Conference is an opportunity to share an in-depth look at success stories that demonstrate results from the applications of Lean, continuous improvement, and innovation management. Our vision is to connect, network, and share the resources of our beautiful state!
