SEPG Asia-Pacific 2009

September 16-18, 2009 | Osaka, Japan

Technical Program

A special focus of the technical program is The Next Generation of Process. Think back on how your approach to performance improvement was different 20 years ago? Now imagine that change going forward in the next 5, 10, or 20 years. How might we prepare to meet the challenges and opportunities? A new track in the program focuses on this stimulating topic.
