We understand that you probably have a ton of things on your mind. You’re constantly under pressure to deliver results, delight customers and do more with less. You spend all of your time trying to motivate John. We also know that you’re going about many changes - perhaps a flavor of the month fad that the boss heard about at a recent conference. We’ve read the same books and bought the same t-shirts. Our thought is, if everybody is doing it there has to be something wrong.

In fact, there is a better way...a better, faster, cheaper way to do what you are trying to do. The mission of the Center for Radical Improvement is to bring passionate people together around radical ideas to solve bring problems. We do this by consistently challenging common thought and conventional wisdom around the ways organizations typically try to improve. In the end, your people will never believe what they can change until they change what they believe.

Would continuous improvement have saved the slide rule? Would Lean Six sigma have helped Smith Corona maintain customer loyalty? As Peter Drucker once said “it is entirely possible to make absolutely perfect that which should not be made at all.” Today’s organizations are delving deeply into increasingly sophisticated continuous improvement methods, striving to achieve ever-higher levels of technical perfection. Yet one simple fact continues to elude them – customers don’t buy products, they buy results.

How do you know if your product/service is about to be put to pasture? How can you anticipate the next innovation that will fundamentally change your business, whether you’re in manufacturing, service, healthcare or education? Once you can see the future, how do you overcome intertia and implement your new ideas? The future belongs not to the perfect, but to the innovative.

We invite you to join us for Better, Faster, Cheaper 2009, an event dedicated to conquering all of the issues mentioned above with a focus on process improvement, customer satisfaction and innovation. If you are looking for a fresh approach to overcoming many of the obstacles you face at the office then I encourage you to attend.

We look forward to working with you in Las Vegas!
