Member Presentation:
CHUTES International is in the process of implementing the new “CHUTES Production System,” a transformation allowing them to increase their quality, productivity, and output, while meeting the increasing demand of their customers. Kris Quade & James Archie from CHUTES will explain and present tools and methodologies they are using; such as One-Piece Flow, Shop Floor Management, Cross-Training and Bumping. 

Keynote Presentation:
Charlie Protzman, President, Business Improvement Group

Charlie Protzman will present the flow system™ a brand-new holistic flow-based approach to delivering customer 1st value in lean and agile organizational transformations while reducing costs and creating growth. This system was created by Nigel Thurlow, former Chief of Agile for Toyota, Professor John Turner of the University of North Texas and Brian Rivera, former top gun fighter pilot. 

For the first time ever the scientific fields of complexity thinking, distributed leadership, and team science have been combined to create the triple helix of Flow™ which highlights the interconnected nature of these three fields. (Click here for full description.)
