[Fort Myers, FL, 11/5/2019 ] –® has announced the agenda for the 34th International Maintenance Conference (IMC), to be held on Marco Island, Florida, December 9-12, 2019. Aimed at maintenance and reliability leaders, asset managers, and anyone who is involved with condition monitoring, IMC-2019 is a learning and networking conference designed to support the creation of effective high-reliability organizational cultures. It will benefit anyone who is responsible for planning, scheduling, managing or implementing any part of an organization’s maintenance reliability, operational excellence or asset management function.

IMC-2019 highlights include:

  • The Welcome Keynote delivered by CEO, Terrence O’Hanlon.
  • The Keynote Address by Tom Peters on “The Excellence Dividend.” An acclaimed management guru, Tom Peters is also a best-selling author who regularly appears on lists of the world’s most influential speakers.
  • The Closing Keynote by Ernie Richardson and Tracey Richardson on “The Toyota Engagement Equation.” Ernie and Tracey Richardson have extensive experience with the Toyota Production System and Continuous Improvement, and both are currently on the faculty at the Lean Enterprise Institute.

Breaks and lunches for both workshops coincide with the IMC-2019 schedule, and workshop attendees will be able to participate in all evening social events. Both will offer optional exams. 
  • The Diversity in Reliability and Asset Management Hackathon offers an opportunity for reliability and asset management enthusiasts to create new approaches, technology, applications and ideas to build and promote greater diversity in the reliability and asset management community.

Just added:

The Reliability Leadership “Zombie Apocalypse” Game closes out the conference with a fun game that poses thought-provoking questions and judgements about the path from being a Maintenance Zombie to becoming a Reliability Leader. This Reliability Leadership game places participants in a world where many humans have been infected with a highly reactive virus. This virus turns humans into reliability zombies, who work without planning and with little cross-functional collaboration, focusing only on the immediate task at hand and simply reacting to what they see around them. As a result, the world will be filled with emergency breakdowns and other setbacks.

To fight off the virus, humans must become engaged and empowered. Whether this happens through one’s own insights or through the support of a larger team, the result is an individual who has become a Reliability Leader.

Participants in the game must strive to become Reliability Leaders. This fun and popular game includes many thought-provoking questions and discussions, and to be successful, players must fully engage, with no judgement and an open mind.

Sign up to play when you register for IMC-2019. Additional fee is required.

Throughout the conference, participants will have the opportunity to meet with the world’s most advanced solution providers offering products, services, training and software. IMC-2019 also offers high-value networking opportunities, including a Welcome Reception, Reliability Leader Networking, the Women in Reliability and Asset Management program, open-table breakfast and lunch daily, and exciting evening social events.

IMC-2019 will be held at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, Marco Island, Florida. More information and registration for IMC-2019 is available at Registration for the CRL Workshop. Registration for the CMM Workshop
