DoubleTree Suites in Lexington, Kentucky



The Kentucky Center of Performance Excellence is seeking dynamic speakers to facilitate 45 minute Breakout Sessions

The conference committee is looking for speakers who can speak to PLANNING, MONITORING or IMPROVEMENT.


Speakers interested in presenting for the planning track should be prepared to present on any of the following topics: How does your organization accomplish strategic planning, balancing short term and long term planning and succession planning?  Speakers are encouraged to share best practices with the audience including how the planning processes have improved over time.  Planning can be found in the Baldrige Framework in categories 1.1 C(1), 1.2 A(1), 2.1, 2.2 A(6), 4.2 B(1), 5.2 B(3).


For the monitoring track, we would like speakers to describe HOW their organization knows whether or not it’s making progress towards its goals?   How they determine what’s working and what’s not working?  Sharing of approaches and learnings would benefit this audience on their journeys towards performance excellence.  This could be any of the processes that fall under the Baldrige Frameworks categories 3, 4, 5, 6 as well as 7, as long the speaker is describing HOW they are doing the monitoring for any of these categories.



For the improvement track, speakers are encouraged to speak on one of the following topics: Organizational Learning and Agility; Managing Innovation; Measurement, Analysis, and Improvement of Organizational Performance; Performance Improvement Systems.  It would be great to see results here.
