Getting Outside Help

We posted a mini survey this month to ask organizations what kind of information they would seek from a conference if they, or someone else from their organization, were to attend.

At the moment the largest number of respondents say they would be seeking information on how to manage a process improvement effort.  The next three largest responses suggest they would seek information on how to implement process change using human performance improvement, using IT practices or using Lean techniques.

The more specialized concerns, like establishing a center of excellence or a business architecture get fewer responses.

This suggests that organizations are interested in basics — how to generate and manage process change with basic techniques — like Lean, IT and human performance change.

As usual with our mini-surveys we don't have as many responses as we'd like so these conclusions are only tentative.  There's still time for others to add their votes.
