With many of these programs finally seeing some initial benefits and drawbacks and as the stories of successes and failures continue to be shared, many business improvement professionals are wondering which direction the trends and development within this space heading. This panel discussion will focus on: • What is new in Lean Six Sigma • What new trends and old trends continue • Have any activities failed and gone by the wayside • How to expand the applications outside of production (labs, R&D, etc) • Practices or approaches being adopted from other industries • Tools or programs that are standing the test of time and really sustaining excellence • How to streamline and control the phases of improvement projects Panelists: Dr. Mark Gershon, SSMBB, President, World Class Training Institute Charles Aubrey,Vice President, Anderson Pharmaceutical Packaging9:45 CASE STUDY: “THE NEED FOR SPEED” In today’s fast-paced environment many of us are struggling with how to use the Lean and Six Sigma tools and approaches we grew up with (which are now 50-60 years old) to meet the speed demanded by our businesses. We’ll explore why things are going faster, some orthodoxies that need to be reexamined in light of the changing environment, give specific examples of how some basic Lean Sigma tools and approaches can be tweaked and adjusted to speed up the process and discuss how the “democratization of learning” can be leveraged to make organizations more responsive. Here you will: • Understand todays business and its fast paced environment • Learn a step by step approach to improving your current operations • Determine the best tools and approaches to increase the speed of your operation Speaker: William Favier, Director, Lean Sigma Training, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.

Too often, continuous improvement programs experience a drop off in benefit or “hit the wall” once a manufacturing site or distribution center has optimized its core processes. Driving to the next level of transformation requires that all of the supporting transactional areas adhere to the core principles of a “LEAN Enterprise”, it simply requires practitioners to translate the work to a new environment.

Speaker: Paul Nelson, Operational Excellence Leader, Shire Pharmaceuticals Inc.12:00 CASE STUDY: MANAGING CHANGE IN LEAN SIX SIGMA DEPLOYMENTS IN HIGHLY REGULATED ENVIRONMENTS Continuous improvement deployments can be fragile. One key to their successful uptake is cultivation of strong sponsorship and proper management of natural resistance to the changes the improvement work will bring. Resistance to change is natural in all areas of continuous improvement application. Highly regulated industries such as food and pharmaceuticals have specific considerations in this regard. This session will focus on: • Methods to assess, cultivate and sustain sponsorship for continuous improvement work • Lessons learned from deployment work in food and pharmaceutical continuous improvement start ups • Questions, answers and sharing from the larger group on what works, what doesn’t work, and tips and tricks to manage complex change landscapes Speaker: Brian Eden, Senior Director and Global Head, Operational Excellence, Mylan Pharmaceuticals12:45 NETWORKING LUNCHEON6 1-800-882-8684 | |

TAKE THE NEXT STEP WITH PROJECT & PROGRAMS APPROACHING OR ALREADY IN A MATURE STATE As many organization’s programs/projects for business Performance Excellence move into a mature state, many fail to deliver on the dream of establishing a culture of continuous improvement.

This session will focus on: • Step by step overview of the entire continuous improvement process • Reviving your team and gaining executive team support • Continuous improvement processes across departments Speaker: Nick Ruhmann, Continuous Improvement Leader, Master Black Belt, BD Medical - Diabetes Care Brian Eden, Senior Director and Global Head, Operational Excellence, Mylan Pharmaceuticals2:30 CASE STUDY: LARGE SCALE MERGER: DETERMINE THE NEXT STEPS Lean Six Sigma can offer a number of techniques that can quickly yield operational insights at all stages of the merger & acquisition process, from due diligence through integration and beyond.
