A facility needs to continuously improve in order to stay effective. To reduce overhead costs or costs per unit, to improve product safety and quality, to improve operational efficiencies facilities must continuously look for ways to improve. In addition, when an issue does emerge, ensuring the issue is not going to repeat is imperative to continuous improvement strategies. But how do you make sure a problem does not continue to happen again and again and again? The team must find the true root cause and correct it. Only after a facility has found the true root cause and put in the appropriate policies, procedures, and possibly capital expense will a problem go away. Too often, band-aids are used, or the response of “re-train operator” is the solution.

In 2021, we sprint as pioneers toward the imminent together. We are blazing the trail for Boise’s future.
In this spirit, our theme this year is Venture Forward.
Now in its sixth year, Idaho's largest community-driven event will Venture Forward with a new name. Boise Entrepreneur Week will continue to be a platform for collaboration and new beginnings that inspire growth-focused outcomes.
