Who Should Attend the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit?

2021 Global TapRooT® Summit

In 1993, the Global TapRooT® Summit started out as a three-day meeting of the best TapRooT® Users. Over 30 years, it has grown to an international event with world-renowned speakers and multiple tracks designed to share performance improvement and root cause analysis best practices across industries and professions. Sometimes people ask me these questions:

  • What kind of people would I meet at the Summit?
  • What industries typically attend?
  • Who should go to the Summit?
  • Why should I go to the Summit?
  • Do past participants recommend the Summit?

Let me answer these questions to help you decide if you, and others from your company, should attend the 2021 Global TapRooT® Summit.
