Attend With Me: Come Learn Statistical Process Control From Don Wheeler


For a long time, I've wanted to attend a “Statistical Process Control” (SPC) class taught by Donald J. Wheeler, Ph.D.

I'm finally doing this in September and I'd like to invite you to join me.

Note: I have no financial relationship with Dr. Wheeler and not receiving a commission or fee for promoting his workshop. I'd just like Lean Blog readers to come and learn alongside me.

The Understanding Statistical Process Control Seminar

I'm attending the session that's being held September 10-13, 2018 in Knoxville.

  • Price: $1595.
  • Includes all books, breakfast buffets,
    and lunches.

From his website: This four-day seminar includes the “Understanding Variation” and “Evaluating the Measurement Process” workshops.

If you're able to attend with me, we can enjoy dinners and the opportunity to compare notes on the class, Lean healthcare, and other topics.

You probably know that Wheeler's work is the basis for my new book Measures of Success. Dr. Wheeler has agreed to write a foreword for the book, which is very exciting for me.

If you're a long-time blog reader, you'll know that I've seen Dr. Wheeler speak at a conference and I've blogged about him before:

I hope you can join us in September.

  1. It’s sort of funny that you’d choose that particular book that ‘changed you.’ I had the good fortune to sit in on Dr. Wheeler’s course many years ago, and he told us the funny story of the photo on the front cover. You’ll have to ask him about it.
