European CM2 Summit 2020

Sustainable Business Calibration and Digital Transformation

To achieve successful transformation in the landscape of tomorrow, businesses must invest in modern organizational change management principles in conjunction with reshaping legacy business processes and systems. Achieving sustained improvement requires the organization to address silo competency mind-sets, antiquated capabilities, and global workforce dynamics.

For a company to successfully transform, that transformation initiative has to be core to the business.

The Institute for Process Excellence has created a best practice approach called "True North Enterprise Calibration (TM)" to sustainable business and digital transfomation. It is based on the world-wide accepted CM2 standard for Configuration and Change Management.

Who should attend

The European CM2 Summit 2020 is the perfect networking platform for leaders in

  • Digital Transformation projects,
  • Configuration and Change Management (reduced fee for CM2 grads),
  • Requirements Management,
  • Business Process Management and Process Improvement,
  • Product Development and Introduction,
  • PLM, ERP, MES, CLM and
  • Integrated Logistics Support.

Speakers from Europe, the U.S. and Turkey will share business and digital transformation best practices and lessons learned

For attendees that are new to CM2 and the True North Enterprise Calibration model there will be a half day Pre Summit CM2 awareness and introductions session on Monday afternoon. In parallel to that we are hosting an introduction session into Obsolescence Management with our partner AmSys.
