This is a hybrid event, with in-person and online attendance. This registration page is to register for in-person attendance at Red Hat, Cork Road, Waterford (X91 NY33). If you wish to register for the online event please visit: and select the online (Google Meet) event. 


Red Hat has a culture of openness and transparency. A strong value that emerged from that is that decisions should be made with careful consideration and consultation. We favour feedback loops and involvement from leadership down to the teams to refine the outcomes before they get implemented. This is akin to the approach recommended to execute Hoshin Kanri in a Lean environment. The result of our experience in working this way for almost 30 years is available as a free guiding tool called the Open Decision Framework. In our SELN talk, come discover how Red Hat has used this tool over the past 4 months to shape a continuous improvement journey that will impact 12,000 people this year. Discover how you can take and deploy it in your teams for any decision that requires both input and engagement in equal measure.


Dr. Leigh Griffin, Red Hat.
