COE is committed to helping you and your team develop those capabilities with our second-annual Leading Through Excellence summit.
At this event, you'll get up-close access to Fisher researchers and professors presenting cases, studies, and workshops that offer valuable tools and insights. You'll hear from celebrated authors and industry experts - and you'll see operational excellence in action through tours to companies throughout Ohio practicing operational excellence.
