Optima’s Leaders Roundtable group provides Executive CI Leaders an opportunity to meet other CI Leaders and learn from one another. Members of each Roundtable group are from non-competing organizations who have been on the Continuous Improvement journey and are willing to share their successes and their struggles along the way. Discussions help members to determine strengths and weaknesses in their organization’s CI journey and to gauge where their organization is at on the CI journey. Members not only get the chance to share their knowledge and experience, but also get to “sharpen the saw” by benefiting from others’ knowledge and experience. Roundtable groups meet quarterly.
The Paradigm President’s Group in MN and the Paradigm Group in ND were designed to foster strong relationships between our members and to unlock the value of real-world best practices. We meet monthly for ½ day at a member site and this is an opportunity for each member to benchmark the best practices (and the not so best practices) of other companies. Members, in utmost confidentiality, discuss their successes and failures and ask their fellow members for advice and analysis.
The Lean Product Development Network was launched to introduce lean and continuous improvement methodologies and concepts into the product development process and to provide a networking group to assist in the transformation. Members determine the events, discussion topics and host companies.
