    Keynote: Mythical Metrics:
    Why Zero Gets You Zero
    Executives and Department heads tend to use quantifiable
    metrics to measure safety, quality, and performance rather
    than qualifiable measurements. Many front-line workers and
    supervisors, routinely surveyed about these ‘goals and targets’,
    question their validity, often referring to them as window
    dressing and optics. Zero Lost Work Day Cases and Target Zero
    Defects can often be indicators of massaging the numbers
    rather than managing the process. During this interactive
    dialogue, the facilitator draws out best practices shared by
    the participants while offering his own experiential examples
    of organizations who have moved beyond Zero to sustain
    operational excellence. Examples of Balanced Scorecards
    created by internal OE/HPI practitioners are shared.

    In 1993, Joe Estey founded Prolepsis Training, a national consulting firm helping businesses throughout North America. Since 2013, Joe has worked with Advanced Technologies and Laboratories (ATL Intl) with operations in 11 states, focused on the primary mission of creating innovative solutions to some of today’s most complex problems from logging operations to laboratory research. His clients include Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, federal and state agencies and educational institutions. In 2016, he accepted the Principal Lead Consulting position with Lucas Engineering and Management Solutions. Featured as an expert in leadership and organizational development, he has provided leadership, quality and process improvement training in multimedia productions. His book, “The Tomorrow Tapestry: Life Woven on the Fabric of Change” was among Publish America’s Top Ten best-selling business books in 2008. As the recipient of three National Awards from the White House Executive Leadership council for his work in public outreach and education, he frequently speaks to thousands of students, public agency leaders, corporate and small business managers and front line workers across the United States. Most importantly, however, Joe has been married to his high school sweetheart for 36 years, and the greatest lessons he has learned about enjoying life come from spending time with his son, daughter, their spouses and three high energy grandsons, all of whom reside in West Richland.
