CQI Lunch and Learn with Eric Budd

Join us for this month’s fun and educational Lunch and Learn session.

Improvement's Two Prime Directives

1) Learn a key to making your organization better

2) Select measures that enlighten rather than blind

Get your ‘exercise’ with two fun learning activities. 

First, you will experience and apply one of the fundamental principles in making improvement happen. Patterns of work quickly and easily become habits that are challenging to alter. Together we will explore what it takes to innovate and create breakthrough levels of improvement.

Second, you will help to demonstrate why our choices of what we measure can support or hinder improvement. Many of our current management practices misdirect our attention. Those practices shift our focus toward measuring elements of our work and systems that cannot produce the progress we seek. Our session will help us gain a more useful and productive perspective.

Enjoy lunch, meet new people, visit with old friends and share your ideas.

Then, if you wish, apply what you learned in the afternoon, perhaps even lead your own exercise session back at work. When you attend, you will be provided with the materials and slides to be able to conduct your own learning exercises.

Eric Budd is this month’s facilitator. He is the Improvement Coordinator at Peaker Services, Inc. Peaker is a successful, 47-year old company based in Brighton, MI. Their workforce and management team seek to implement approaches to leadership, feedback processes, compensation and improvement based on the work of W. Edwards Deming. Eric was a co-developer of the original version of the CQI Academy and has led and updated the CQI Academy since 2012. He holds a B.S in Information Management and an M.S. in Quality Systems Management. In addition to participating in the Michigan Lean Consortium, Eric serves on the CQI Board of Directors.
