Welcome to the Omaha OD Network

Upcoming events

  Our new Business Imperative theme!

TOPIC: Management Standard Work in Action (new title!)

LOGISTICS: Wednesday, September 24th, 7:30-9am @ UNO Mammel Hall, room 117 (see link to parking pass below)


In many organizations, we hear in our problem solving process that "management support" is needed to provide resources for process improvement implementation and also in sustaining these improvements.

Since we seem to focus so much on the shop floor or direct process workers, we felt it was time to turn the tables and look at what management can do to improve their methods and create procedures to help the workers be better. Also, sustaining productivity improvements have long been plagued by set-backs or slipping back into “old” patterns.

Renee has a light hearted program planned to share insights into the role of management that will continue to inspire and motivate a company to embrace continuous improvement.

The program includes an analogy between management and the onion. Hopefully, no tears will be shed!


Renee Held currently holds the position of Business Consultant with the Nebraska Business Development Center at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She has over thirty years of experience in manufacturing. Her range of experience is from production operator, supervisor, billing, operations, ERP implementation and network management. Her role at the NBDC is that of Lean Manufacturing training, implementation and consulting with companies across the state of Nebraska. Renee continues to learn from her students and share this knowledge with others that she encounters on the journey of Lean sharing.


Renee holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, as well as a NIST Certification in Lean training programs from NIST MEP.
