Networks Print

The Iowa Quality Center believes that sharing of best practices and building relationships among organizations may be the biggest advantage for learning.  Organizational members gather monthly in various locations across the state of Iowa to learn from each other and share the knowledge gained in their experiences.  The network attendees are the main focus and select the topics for the monthly discussions.

Monthly meetings are held in Iowa City, Des Moines, and Cedar Rapids; joint partnership meetings with the Jones County economic development group and the Southwest Iowa Manufacturing and Quality group in Council Bluffs.  Although the topics vary from month to month the different locations focus on areas of interest such as:

  • Lean Six Sigma
  • Speed of Trust
  • Team Building Skills
  • Organizational tours
  • Culture change
  • Innovation
  • Data analysis
  • Performance Excellence
  • Workforce engagement

We will help you be the best you can be!!

Does your job require presenting material and facilitating professional discussions?  Does your annual performance review have Communication or Leadership as a core competency?  If so, the Iowa Quality Center can provide you with a relaxed environment to practice in these areas.  We are seeking presenters for our monthly network meetings.  You can present material of your own or we can provide you material to present.  Professional growth does not happen by magic.  It will happen by the intentionality that comes from leading a group of success-minded people in sharing their best practices.

It's a great accomplishment to add to your personal development plan and share with your leaders.  Please contact Organizational Development Professional Deb Oliver ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) for more information.
