THE 2018 International Society for Performance Improvement's Regional Symposium

October 18-20, 2018

Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan 

In 2018, ISPI will embark on twelve months of storytelling...The Story of Performance Improvement. The art of understanding, listening, and telling are key elements to compelling and driving change. As consultants, we seek to understand the problems a client faces; as researchers, we try to listen to what the data tells us and compare to trends; and as trainers, we strive to tell a story that is compelling enough to transform the way we engage with and learn from one another. Each story begins with a problem, is filled with action, and ends with real results. ISPI has a story to tell!

More information on a special summer storytelling institute in Washington DC is coming soon!
