Kevin McManus

All of us at TapRooT® would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Kevin McManus who received The Fellows Award among 250 leaders in education and business at the 2016 IISE Honors & Awards Dinner held at the Disneyland Resort.

The Fellows Award recognizes outstanding leaders of the profession (IISE – Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers) who have made significant nationally recognized contributions to Industrial engineering. A Fellow is the highest classification of IISE membership, and has been given to only 400 individuals globally.

Kevin was nominated and selected for his contributions to Industrial Engineering through his volunteer activities. He has been a supporter of IISE for more than 35 years.  He has written 200 articles for the IISE monthly publication; held workshops; spoke at their conferences; and taught as a guest professor at universities globally.  Kevin is an examiner for the National Baldrige Performance Excellence Award (previously the Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award), a position he has held for 16 years.

Kevin will be co-teaching Advanced Trending Techniques during 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit week (August 1 & 2, San Antonio, Texas) with Mark Paradies, System Improvements’ President.  He will also be presenting “What’s Holding You Back – Common Barriers to Process Excellence” and “Who Really Owns a Quality Defect” at the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit August 3-5, 2016.

Congratulations, Kevin, on your incredible contributions and hard-earned accomplishments!
