The 2020 Global TapRooT® Summit addresses issues encountered by professionals and industries
The Summit provides the best platform conducive to networking and benchmarking with participants from global industry leaders, performance-improvement experts, and professional TapRooT® Instructors. Summit attendees are encouraged to present their proven best practices and to share ideas.
System Improvements President Mark Paradies states:
“We originated the Summit to bring together people interested in root cause analysis and performance improvement (especially TapRooT® users) in order to share best practices and new techniques to keep attendees’ performance improvement efforts ahead of the competition. When you are planning for the Summit, think, ‘What are the biggest problems I am facing?’ and ‘Which tracks will help improve performance the most?’”
