Developing products for an increasingly complex world is hard. Factors like security, safety, agility, or interconnectivity challenge or even exceed current engineering capabilities. To master this complexity, Method Park developed the process management software Stages and initiated the related annual event series “Stages Insights” - the Engineering Excellence Network.

From the industry for the industry: Our goal is to connect people from different industries with same mindset and talk about efficient processes management – whether they are beginners, experts or leaders in the field of Systems & Software Engineering. During one full day, we will share best practices and provide insights in new approaches.

Proven event concept: In 2017, we have met for the 6th time at Stages Insights in North America. Exciting speeches, networking sessions and enough time for individual 1:1 discussions within a partnering environment characterize our event.


Engineering tomorrows products means we must realize the process landscape today. During our Stages Insights event you will...

Learn how to:

  • Make processes applicable
  • Conform with industry standards and regulations
  • Master engineering complexity, i.e. digitalization, IoT 

Venue: Royal Park Hotel
600 East University Drive Rochester, Michigan 48307

    Profit from:

    • Exclusive insights into the Stages roadmap
    • Experiences from other industries
    • The opportunity to connect with process experts

    Conference room: Presentations about efficient process
    impolementations and how to apply Stages successfully

    Workshop Process Management 4.0

    Right after the Stages Insights conference, we traditionally conduct our one day workshop "Process Management 4.0 - A methodical approach to success". Get more information here.
