What Makes The TapRooT® Summit So Valuable
Each year we consult with and teach root cause analysis to the world’s leading companies. This interaction makes us premier “knowledge brokers.” Instead of keeping all the best practices we learn to ourselves, we share them once a year at the TapRooT® Summit.
This sharing started out as a simple three day meeting of our best TapRooT® users. Over 20 years, it has grown to an international event with world-renowned speakers and multiple tracks designed to share best practices within and across industries and professions.
2-Day Pre-Summit Courses
To enhance your knowledge even more, before the Summit there are optional two-day courses to pick from! Participants can get CEU credits for both the Summit and the Pre-Summit Courses!
