10th Annual GBMP Northeast Lean Conference

About L.E.A.N..: The 10th Annual Northeast Lean Conference will showcase organizations who have not only embraced the technical aspects of operational excellence, but who are also creating a leadership model and favorable work environment that enables floor employees to develop as change agents. Employee teams and managers from America’s most successful organizations such as: Billy Ray Taylor, Jamie Bonini, Kim Barnas, and Russ Scaffede will share their stories and provide valuable takeaways from their Lean journeys. Whether you are a top manager seeking ideas to motivate and engage your leadership team, a middle manager trying to better understand how to balance improvement and daily management, or a floor employee who wants to take charge of improvement in your department, the two-day Northeast Conference is the single best, most time and cost-effective means to drive your organization to a new, sustainable level of improvement.   Combining keynotes, workshops, simulations and our unique “Lean Lounge”, the 10th Annual Northeast Lean Conference provides multiple opportunities to network and learn from peers in your industry.

What L.E.A.N offers: The event provides attendees with the knowledge, resources and tools they need to make their organization exceptional. Attendees will learn not only the technical aspects of operational excellence, but also how to create leadership models and favorable work environments to enable floor employees to develop as change agents. The focus of the event is on the technical and cultural challenges every organization faces in its lean transformation and pursuit of perfection and shining a light on the relationship between guiding principles, management systems and improvement tools (the Human, Strategic and Tactical components of Lean) as the foundation for achieving operational excellence.
