Amid the continuing disruption in today’s business world, operational agility and continuous improvement have never been more important.

Since 2012, business leaders from across North America have gathered annually for the Ohio State University Center for Operational Excellence Summit, a 3-day event dedicated to connecting diverse industries and organizations to the latest best practices in leadership and problem-solving. This year’s event will return to an in-person format for the first time since 2019 and will feature relevant topics ranging from leadership and continuous improvement to lean management and innovation, all presented by leading authors, top researchers at Ohio State, and industry experts.

With 4 dynamic keynotes, 15 breakout sessions, engaging entertainment, and multiple opportunities to network with peers, speakers, and sponsors, the COE Summit is a high-value opportunity for your team to explore what it means to change, adapt, and excel through operational excellence.
