Leading with a Systems View
Take Your Organization’s Performance to the Next Level
Aileron is excited to host The W. Edwards Deming Institute and two Deming experts. They’ll present a two-and-a-half-day workshop that shows how to apply professional management to your business using core concepts from Deming. Through small-group breakouts, work sessions, and discussion, you’ll develop a systems view of your organization and see how you can improve effectiveness through reduced costs, increased productivity, and accelerated growth and innovation.
