As ISPI Montreal tries to find its footing once again as a chapter, it has been lining up a slew of interesting events. Up until now it has hosted five events since its relaunch in October 2013.
This webinar will introduce some new ideas that radically simplify process analysis work. In essence, this talk will introduce a scope diagram–a way for a team to quickly define the types of problems one faces in a specific process situation. Having identified possible problems, we will then consider the nature of the solutions that might be appropriate for different types of problems.
July 2014–Rwanda is on the move. It is one of the only countries expected to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, and it is already a leader on the continent in the areas of health care and economic growth.

Cultivating a Culture of Performance Improvement: Agile Response and Tangible Results @WorkerWorkWorkplaceWorld
Only you can contribute your unique perspective! At ISPI Europe/EMEA, we believe that a conference is more than its programs and presenters. Our conference participants are every bit as much a part of the total learning experience as our fabulous presenters. Our conferences are compelling because of their innovative, active-interactive format.
In this issue, Dr. Pershing explores articles from seasoned professionals and new up-and-comers in the industry. Roger Chevalier opens this issue with a powerful piece taking a look at his approach and tools in workplace performance. He then further explores a hot topic of big data and how it can provide companies with more of an edge. Continuing in the workplace, and diving into the topic of performance management, Amanda Trosten-Bloom, Tye Deines, and Tracy Carsten present a different approach on this topic. The issue is then rounded out with an amazing piece from the past, written by none other than Thomas Gilbert. Marilyn Gilbert was kind enough to supply this wonderful piece to the journal readers.
