Regardless of whether you’ve been lean for years or just got started, come join us in Lexington and delve deeper into one of the key tools for a successful, sustainable true lean transformation. You know the basics, come hear peers from other lean companies discuss topics like executive engagement, prioritizing problems, sustaining the culture, following through all eight steps, and spreading it beyond the model area.

We’ll also have most of our instructors there to guide the event and network with you. This year we are planning to add panel discussions with instructors and speakers leading the way.

Registration is open now! Sign up to join us for an intense two day immersion with other lean thinkers. Bookmark this page to keep up with more news about the theme and speakers as we get closer to the event.

Why attend?

Attend for affirmation…

Whether you feel the challenges on your true lean journey are overwhelming or your journey is going smoothly, hearing how others are progressing will increase your knowledge and boost your confidence. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions, perhaps questions you wouldn’t have known to ask before hearing about other companies’ implementations.

Attend for confirmation…

Is my company on track? Are we moving in the right direction? Are we performing the correct activities? Is our experience in line with that of others?

Attend to build relationships…

Connect to people in your industry and see a different perspective from those in other industries. Spend time sharing your lean stories with those who will have their own stories to share.

Attend for a status check…kikuchi

How far has my company traveled and how quickly did we get here? Is our rate of implementation OK? How do we compare with other companies?
