    The workshop will be facilitated by Mike Gratz of MIPRO and will be hosted by Lifebanc in Cleveland, Ohio. The Metric of Urgency Way™ or MoU™ (based on the principles of Lean Six Sigma) is a methodology designed to work within any process improvement framework and deliver meaningful impact. MoU Way™ consists of 7 key components which must be followed to solve any strategic challenge. While the process remains the same, the level of rigor to execute each step may vary significantly with the magnitude of the problem.
