Shark Tank – Taking the ‘Bite’ out of Project Idea Generation”


Based loosely on the hit “Shark Tank” TV program, Dave will present a unique process improvement case study and methodology centered around a model to change and sustain an organizational problem-solving culture. How do you gather project ideas and reward employees? Using several engaging polling tools, the ASQ Section attendees will learn:

  • Employees find the “Shark Tank” format is a fun, engaging method to share best process improvement ideas while competing for rewards and recognition
  • Leaders understand the format is a method to sort and rank employees’ new process improvement ideas
  • Your organization can easily tailor “Shark Tank” ideas for different organizations to change cultures from disengaged employees to engaged and excited problem-solvers.
