Lean Summits & Conferences

Leaper LEI summits and conferences raise consciousness, generate enthusiasm, and explore new frontiers in Lean Thinking. You'll learn from leading lean practitioners and colleagues who have faced the same challenges you face now. You'll also enjoy the industry's best networking to build (or continue to build) your own network of lean thinkers. Summits are two-day events designed for mid- to upper-level managers, with a focus on sustaining the lean journey, and insights into innovative ways to enhance your lean journey. Conferences are one- or two-day events that are more narrow-scoped, and could range from lean manager fundamentals to other topical themes.

Why LEI Summits & Conferences

  • Deep knowledge and exceptional presenters and facilitators, like the best lean practitioners/leaders as well as the best known sensei in the lean world
  • Superior networking
  • Variety of learning situations, including keynotes, interactive learning sessions, and a panel discussion
  • Possibility to maximize the time at the conference by attending a pre- or post-conference workshops as well (there is a discount for attending both the conference and a workshop)
  • Various discounts for combining a summit or conference with associated workshops as well as sending a team from the same organization

This June 19 and 20 join Jim Morgan, Jim Womack, and other thought leaders in product and process development in Traverse City at the first annual Designing the Future Summit. Plus, you will hear from internationally known companies on how LPPD has changed their approach to product and process development, creating better products for their companies.

For the past 4 years LEI’s Lean Product and Process Development initiative has gained a foothold and is beginning to change how companies develop the right product, at the right time, for the right customer.

For the first time, we are creating a unique event for designers, product, process, and quality engineers, supply chain professionals, and development leaders as well as thought leaders to come together, learn from each other. We expect this to be a remarkably hands on learning experience with the goal of each session to give you something you can apply the minute you return to work.

LEI has built a reputation for delivering outstanding learning experiences, and our promise to you is that this first-time LPPD event will not feel like that for you.

The 2018 Designing the Future Summit will be held June 19-20, 2018 in Traverse City, Michigan.Sign up to be notified when more information is available »
