Sharing Best Practices

We will have a best practice sharing program where conference attendees and other plant personnel can submit their improvement ideas in a simple one page format to be shared with other attendees. Ideas submitted in advance of the conference will be judged with the best ideas being recognized during the conference. Attendees will get copies of all the best ideas during the conference. 

  • Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
  • Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
  • Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
  • Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
