The RELIABILITY Conference

The RELIABILITY Conference (TRC), one of the most significant reliability venues in 2018 was held between April 23-27, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV at the South Point Hotel and Casino. More info can be found at John’s 2nd Edition Book Release and Signing on “Why Execution Fails and What to Do About It” was held at this event!! In this revised edition, there is an added focus on the executive sponsor role. As a key stakeholder for supporting corporate initiatives, there is little to no guidance or training provided for this role.

The new Chapter 4 titled “The ART of Executive Sponsorship” promises to provide a robust framework that will help formalize and operationalize this critical role to coordinate, own and drive change efforts to successful completion.

John’s new SUCCESS ELEMENTS for Sustainable Change poster is being released for use by asset management and reliability practitioners to aid them on their implementation journey to ensure sustainable change for optimal business performance. Download here!
