Lean and Six Sigma in the Digital Age
Organizations are transforming at an exponential rate! This transformation is being driven by changes to the workforce, the workplace, and the markets organizations serve. There is both challenge and opportunity that exist within this extreme rate of change, and this extends to the role quality practitioners can play within all organizations. The organizational opportunities offered through disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and the internet of things (IoT) are coupled with the challenges of cybersecurity, big data analytics, block chain, data management, and digital transformation.
Within this dynamic is an opportunity for quality professionals to evolve from members who support organizations to individuals who can lead the transformation organizations must implement. Successful organizations of the future must expand the scope of quality and IT functions so both can work together to lead the digital transformation that all organizations must achieve.
ASQ is looking for leading lean and Six Sigma practitioners who are able to share their best practices, tested solutions, and proven results that address these challenges and demonstrate their success within an ever-changing digital landscape. This search specifically seeks presentations that can integrate the conference theme with one or more of the focus areas outlined below. We invite you to share your successes and proven techniques to an audience representing an array of countries, backgrounds, and industries. To learn more and submit a proposal, please click here.
