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 HR & 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?

Think of this Summit as an incubator… it’s a concentrated gathering of professionals all focused on developing people in a lean enterprise. Learn more in 2-days at this Summit than you could in 12 months on your own. You’ll interact with the world’s most knowledgeable and experienced lean coaches, company practitioners who will share their experiences, as well as your peers who, like you, who are experimenting and are willing to share their knowledge.

Who Should Attend?
