Fox Cities Operational Excellence Association

The **complimentary** Fox Cities Operational Excellence Association (FCOEA) is committed to helping its members strengthen their business and community through knowledge sharing and networking. Our primary focus will be on the strategy and tools of Lean Six Sigma and their application for competitive advantage and success.

Key objectives of this group are to increase Lean Six Sigma effectiveness through knowledge sharing and networking. Join us for presentations, round table discussions on specific topics; sharing of ideas, resources, lessons learned and frustrations; demonstrations of practical examples vs. theoretical answers; inspiring innovation and transformation results.
