SHS offers a wide network of colleagues, experts and resources outside your organization, along with the latest and best process analytics, tools, techniques and methodologies for performance improvement and opportunities for professional development.

Aaron Kanne “Membership has helped me in my career because it has given me an avenue of continual learning and growth. Plus, I have had the chance to meet so many others that I've been able to build relationships with and I can call on them whenever I need advice or another perspective on my specific problems. I also enjoy mentoring others, and I feel I've been able to positively impact the careers and lives of others, which gives me a sense of fulfillment in my career and professional life.”
