Steven J. Spear Podcast for the upcoming IQPC Lean Six Sigma Summit

I’m happy to be a media partner for the upcoming IQPC Lean Six Sigma & Process Improvement Summit, to be held January 17-20 2011 in Orlando, Florida.

One of their keynote speakers is Professor Steven J. Spear, a previous guest on my Podcast series (episodes #58 and #87) and the author of the book The High-Velocity Edge: How Market Leaders Leverage Operational Excellence to Beat the Competition.

As a preview to their conference, IQPC has a new podcast discussion of their own with Spear, which you can find on this page.

In the podcast, they talk about topics including:

  • What is a “high-velocity” company?
  • How are some companies able to generate far better performance than the rest in their industry, across every relevant measure?
  • How is Toyota an example of this, even with recent problems?
  • What common themes are there with the U.S. nuclear navy and its safety record?

You can see their event agenda here and their list of speakers here.
