The 2020 Lean Practitioners Association of Saskatchewan Conference is Going Virtual!

Uncertainty Drives Innovation and Change

October 22, 2020

​​Because 2020 has been anything but 20/20! The COVID-19 crisis has meant that few if any organizations have escaped the need to make changes to the way they have typically provided products and/or services to their customers.  

This is certainly the case for LPAS. We have been forced into, what is for us, some quite unfamiliar territory - Delivering the conference virtually. Initially, there was a great deal of uncertainty.  But with the input, and innovative thinking, of our first-ever conference planning team, and a recently expanded executive, necessary changes have been made to ensure you and your team will receive a highly memorable learning opportunity.  

One advantage, for all of us, of a virtual event, is the chance to connect with a much wider network of fellow continuous improvement practitioners from all across Saskatchewan. 

So join us on October 22nd to hear, and see, a great roster of multi-sector presenters. All eager to share how their organizations have innovated and changed in response to different forms of uncertainty. 

And, if that’s not enough, you'll also learn from one of the best. Internationally renowned author, leadership coach, and Lean practitioner, Karyn Ross who will provide guidance for the breakout and networking sessions and, of course, facilitate an interactive keynote address that you'll be talking about for a long time.
