Learn, Discover, Inspire: using CI to reduce every day frustrations

After our very successful first conference last year, we are delighted to be running our second event on Thursday 6 July at the Mathematical Institute. It will give you an opportunity to hear inspiring stories about how colleagues are using continuous improvement (CI) approaches to affect positive change in their local area and learn about tools that you can use to help you in your role.  

There will be a mixture of talks, activities and a showcase, where you can speak to colleagues from across the University about how they are using CI, and discover how small steps can lead to big changes. If you’re not already doing so, we hope you’ll leave the conference inspired to use CI in your work.
