Welcome to the Summer School on Quality and Organizational Excellence 2019, at the University of Minho, Portugal.

Our goal is to bring people together from across the globe, sharing experiences and discussing Quality. The Summer School promotes more than 40 hours of contact, across which you will have the opportunity to learn, share experiences and meet new colleagues who share the same passion for Quality. This year’s edition focuses on Lean Six Sigma improvement projects. By attending the Summer School you will have the chance to learn more about this improvement methodology and see real life implementation projects, become familiar with unique examples and approaches that will be shared by the Speakers – Lance Coleman and Liz Keim – and participate in a Lean Six-sigma workshop.

The courses will take place throughout the week, with daily classes, group work and industrial visits, balancing theoretical and practical examples of the best practices in the field of Lean Six Sigma. The program is composed by a series of different opportunities to learn, improve knowledge, and contact with tools, methods and industrial best practices in the implementation of Lean Six Sigma.

You are invited to apply!
