The 11th Annual Northeast L.E.A.N. Conference: Putting the Pieces Together

L.E.A.N. = Lead, Enable And Nurture

  • Where do we begin?
  • How can we sustain the gains we've made?
  • How do we progress from operational excellence to enterprise excellence? How can Lean and improvement become continuous and ingrained in the fabric of the organization?
  • What must we do to create Lean culture? How can we see our gaps and evaluate our true Lean progress?

There are so many questions like these surrounding Lean transformation, and even more answers! Is there an as-yet-undiscovered puzzle piece that will complete the puzzle? Or is there a combination and sequence of employee and management practices that will unlock your organization's Lean potential? How does it all fit together? Not surprisingly, integrating the manifold aspects of Lean implementation can be a confounding task.

Join us in 2015 as we address these questions together, engaging the most respected authorities from our Lean community and from around the world. From frontline to front office, this conference is for you. Come get your key questions answered and take your organization to a deeper and broader Lean understanding.

"The speakers at this conference were EXCELLENT! I learned new things in ALL of the sessions I went to. After each presentation I thought the next one can't be better, and then it was. WOW!"

"The speakers were all so engaging, passionate and knowledgeable, and not just just on the theories but on the actual application and implementation of the tools and philosophies of Lean. Tons of takeaways. Thanks!"
