Our July meeting is just around the corner! We'll be meeting Wednesday, July 6th. This will be our first meeting in our new space, Xactware. They have a very nice space that they'll be lending to us.

Xactware is located at 1100 W Traverse Pkwy, Lehi, UT 84043, just over a mile from the Pluralsight Lehi office we have been meeting at. The rotating door at the front of the building will be unlocked, and you can come straight in to the classroom to sign in (don't worry, we'll be sure to have people available to help!)

This month, we're starting our discussion of "This Is Lean: Resolving the Efficiency Paradox" (Amazon link: Please read the prologue and chapter 1 so that we can discuss them together.

Our June meeting was the last meeting that we'll be able to hold at Pluralsight. We're currently looking for a new location, and would love to have your input! Please fill out this survey:

You'll notice that we're doing range voting for the locations that we've heard about so far. If you're unfamiliar with this style of voting, feel free to rank each option based on how much you like it independent of any other options
