The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2017.

The collapse of the I-85 bridge near Piedmont Road last spring effected thousands of drivers daily. It also threatened businesses in the area with revenue losses due to rerouted traffic, and it strained auxiliary roadways. City officials projected a year before normalcy could be restored, that is, until a remarkable team pulled it off in record time. Join Adam Grist of C.W. Matthews Construction as he reviews what it took to pull “The Miracle Project” off.
Grist will also discuss labor trends in construction project management. This will truly be one networking sessions not to miss. See you there!

Did you know that you can achieve 15-40% efficiency gains and cost savings in 4-8 weeks using Lean/Agile? And that most of the time, these gains also lead to generating additional revenue? Other organizations and teams have experienced this phenomenon, and you can too if you invest a day in learning how. It doesn’t matter whether your process is technical such as software development or business focused such as issuing an insurance policy; all processes can be improved significantly using Lean/Agile practices.
In RefineM’s Lean/Agile Process Improvement Workshop, you will learn about process flows and optimization using concepts such as value stream mapping, WIP limits, Kanban boards, and Agile. You and your team will identify areas of improvement, organize them into themes, visualize the current process, and build a Kanban board to identify opportunities for immediate improvement. You will leave the course with the ability to optimize and improve upon critical business and technical processes demonstrated by key metrics. By implementing Lean/Agile training and process improvement, you could increase business efficiency by as much as 15-40% within 4-8 weeks.
The benefits of the workshop are increased exponentially when more than one individual from your team or organization participates. This allows you to not only learn the Lean/Agile concepts but apply those to your specific technical/business processes during the workshop and walk away with a value stream map and Kanban board that you can start using right away.
