Our 75-minute presentations, grouped in 8 different tracks, have been, and are still the backbone of THE Performance Improvement Conference.

Bringing Everyday Innovation to ISPI’s 2014 International Conference

Bringing Everyday Innovation to ISPI’s 2014 International Conference

Recently, Terry Farmer and I had the pleasure of participating in the 2014 International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) Conference. I will share, up front, that I have a strong appreciation for ISPI, and I’ve presented at various ISPI conferences over the years. The first time I presented at an ISPI Conference was in San Francisco all the way back in 2001, and the day after my presentation, while walking across the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge, I proposed to my best friend, now wife of 12 years.

Roundtable Presentations at THE Conference

Roundtable Presentations at THE Conference

Yes, they are a digestive and intellectual duo of every ISPI conference. With names like “Cracker Barrel,” “Lunch-n-Learn,” “Bagel Barrel,” and even “Chat-n-Chew,” ISPI conferences are known for their General Sessions where eating and learning go together like milk and cookies! Roundtables are an excellent way for participants to invest just 20 minutes, at three different tables of choice, and walk away with a functional understanding of a model, approach, concept, or tool that they can really use tomorrow. Attendees are invited to grab a complimentary sandwich and select a table.

Why Attend THE Performance Improvement Conference?

Why Attend THE Performance Improvement Conference?

Eileen Banchoff wrote a great article last month about attending the conference in which she touched on some excellent points; you should check it out if you have not read it already. These articles come across my desk first, and this is one article I was super-excited to share. Had Eileen not sat through that “one more” educational session and received the Kicks and Whacks she spoke of, then she would still be on the same path and not seen things from a different perspective.

The ISPI Conference: A First-Timer’s Perspective

If you have not been to one of the annual International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) conferences, then you do not know what you are missing.
