I had to take a minute and tell everyone why I am excited about the second half of the year for APICS Phoenix. If you've looked at the schedule for the past year you will no doubt notice that our events were lacking. This fiscal year—starting in July—we already have five dynamic events booked. Keep an eye out for more details and remember to block off your calendars for the third Thursday of every month.
OnTrac's Mike Harris will be our speaker in August. I met Mike on a site tour a few months back. Not only does he have an approachable personality, he is very knowledgeable. Most of us are dealing with a transition from intuition based decisions to data driven decision making. Mike was open about what that meant for his team and gave my group a great view of the OnTrac world. Later in the year we have two partner events with other organizations in health care and quality management. These will provide a great opportunity to network and hear business solutions from a different perspective. Be sure to keep an eye on the calendar for what's coming up and when to register.
