2016 Process Excellence Benchmarking Forum - Europe

Build Enterprise Continuous Improvement Capability

February 23-24, 2016

WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management

MoreSteam.com, the global leader in online Process Improvement training tools, is hosting its European Process Excellence Benchmarking Forum for a third time. This invitation-only event gathers MoreSteam's European customers to benchmark, network, and share the best features and challenges of their Process Excellence deployments.

Benchmark and Share Best Practices

  • A Forum of Your Peers: We connect deployment leaders building Process Excellence across Europe in a relaxed and conversational setting. Conference participants are experienced process improvement leaders but may be new to using online technologies in their deployments. This conference is the best place to learn more!
  • An Exclusive Gathering: Access to the event is by invitation-only and limited to no more than 50 MoreSteam customers and friends.
  • Free to Attend: There is no cost to attend beyond your time and travel. To offer access to all interested customers, we request that registered attendees notify MoreSteam in advance if it becomes necessary to cancel. This allows us to extend an invitation to a wait-listed person.
  • Presentations are offered by deployment leaders building Process Excellence within Europe. We focus on practical knowledge you can take home and use in your own program.
  • To foster conversation, registration is limited, with no more than 2-3 participants from any one company.

Parking Update

The city of Vallendar has recently made changes to parking policies in municipal lots. There is now a 4 hour time limit and a cost to parking in public parking lots. MoreSteam recommends that conference attendees purchase a 10 Euro/day parking pass to park in the WHU parking garage. It is located on campus and adjacent to the conference meeting rooms. The passes must be pre-ordered. If you would like a pass reserved for you, please send Kathy Miller (kmiller@moresteam.com) your first, last name + license plate number (Autokennzeichen) by Tuesday, February 9th. We will arrange a pass for you. Representatives from WHU will be on-site to collect the necessary funds.

If you do not order a parking pass, plan to have a lot of small change in your pocket. The parking ticket machine does not accept paper money. And you will need to frequently refresh your access throughout the day.

Questions? Need More Information?

Email Kathy Miller, kmiller@moresteam.com. If you have a suggestion for a discussion topic or would like to share a best practice from your deployment, please let Kathy know so we can incorporate your idea into the conference agenda.
