What I’d like from the AMED network is…
Access to a community of peers who share a passion for organizational improvement.
Welcome to AMED. How did you find out about us? I am thrilled when my networks overlap. We met when you came to Scotland 10 years or so ago to speak to the Deming group. AMED and DLN are on distinct but complementary lines - systems thinkers all (or almost).
