    Lean IT Leadership: Problem Solving Workshop

    Crowne Plaza Hotel

    At the heart of Lean Thinking is the Plan-Do-Check-Act problem solving process popularized by Dr. Deming over fifty years ago. This problem solving discipline is still vital today, and it’s the very core of what it means to be a “learning organization.”

    This workshop provides hands-on, experiential learning by applying this discipline to a problem that is meaningful to you:

    • First comes a little advance homework – choose a problem you and your team face, gather some data and artifacts, and speak to your stakeholders to understand their perspectives and needs
    <li>Then attend the workshop for a six-hour interactive walkthrough of the problem solving process, during which we will tackle the problem you and your team have brought to class</li>
    

  • Take what you’ve learned back to your workplace and share with your associates
    <li>Then participate in a conference call with the course instructor to discuss what you’ve learned, and how you and your team are addressing in a way that it stays solved</li> </ul>

    Portland Retro Gaming Expo
    through
    Crowne Plaza Hotel

    The Portland Retro Gaming Expo is an annual exhibition of classic video games and systems in Portland, Oregon. We aim to recognize the history of video game systems and their authors, manufacturers and players.

    That said, the classic game collecting hobby is most closely associated with the Atari 2600/5200/7800, Nintendo NES and SNES systems, Sega Master System/Genesis, and other systems released in the 1980s and early 1990s. One can expect to see these systems as well as many lesser-known systems at the Retro Gaming Expo.

    In addition to home systems, we have had a larger showing of full-size arcade games to play.
