THE 2018 International Society for Performance Improvement's Annual Conference

April 5-10, 2018

Hyatt Regency
Seattle, Washington

This year’s conference is about thinking differently. We invite you to share your knowledge, insight, research, and practices to broaden our perspective, expand our knowledge, and to think in new ways!

The conference theme will be Meaningful Work by Design, focusing on the application of design thinking to performance improvement, and how to create and sustain meaning at work. It’s a way of expanding our thinking about the practice of performance improvement, and achieving extraordinary results for the people, departments, and organizations we work with.
