WHAT IS PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT?
Our company IPA Slovakia has been organising this conference for the sixth time in Žilina. This two-day event connects 200 directors and managers who come to learn and are inspired by the speakers and by each other as well. Also this year we have done our best to choose the best speakers, who would show you their unique culture, dynamic strategies, the zest to risk, to fall and then to risk again. The conference is a place of enriching the mutual relations and new business partnerships for you to prepare better for your personal and professional challenges. The evening is enriched by a non-traditional programme and informal discussion. This year we organise a workshop about continuous improvement Toyota KATA hosted by Tilo Schwarz one day before the conference. The number of places for both actions is limited.
