About the 2012 Workshop

The Ellis R. Ott Workshops in 2012 feature hands-on seminars, this year focusing. data mining, modeling leadership organizational structures, and applying lean methods to institutional quality systems.

The workshop-based model emphasizes skills under the theme of "Learn it Today, Use it Monday" – tools that attendees will receive personalized, capped-class size instructor led tools that can be immediately re-applied upon returning to the office following the conference. As such, the conference provides attendees the opportunity to obtain an immediate return on the time invested. This year’s workshop outputs feature take-home, out of the box quality control methods using Excel macros, creating a "two page quality manual", or a tailored leadership model depending on the attendee’s area of interest.

To preserve the quality of the face to face instruction, class sizes are kept small and seats will be limited.

The 2012 conference featured three all-day workshops:

  • QI Macros and Data Mining — Jay Arthur
  • Leading Organizations to Excellence — Thomas Pyzdek
  • Creating a Leaner Quality Management System — Mike Micklewright

About the Ellis R. Ott Conference

The Ott conference, now in its sixth decade was founded by Ellis R. Ott, Rutgers professor and early proponent of statistical quality control methodologies in American industry.
