The Generis Experience

  • Senior Level Executives
  • 100+ Business Meetings On-Site
  • Thought-Provoking Case Studies
  • Implementable Ideas

I’m in a room filled with people that, when I say ‘DMAIC’, they immediately know what I’m talking about. When I say ‘Gemba Walk’, they know exactly what I’m talking about. Not only do they know what I’m talking about, they provide me with stories of their own that now I’m absorbing and I’m going to use when I go back to my office.Bill Seaton – SVP, Global Engineering, Bayer
I was impressed by the quality of the audience, speakers, and what Generis has been able to assemble. I’ve been able to have conversations that will be beneficial to the transformation that I'm driving.
