Developing People in the Lean Enterprise

You and your company are not alone. You want a lean culture and an engaged workforce, but this “target condition” is far from your “current condition.” And traversing the space between the two is daunting.

The Lean People Development Summit is designed to address this gap by developing Talent Development Strategies for…

  • defining key improvement skills and behaviors
  • identifying the existing gap in workforce skills and behaviors
  • laying out strategies for deploying these skills and behaviors from front-line staff to executive leaders

Why Attend?

Learn more in 2-days at this Summit than you could in 12 months on your own.
