Lean Summits & Conferences

Training Without Traveling
Here’s a reminder of the many ways we support remote training:

  • Distance Learning for social distancing. Train yourself and your team online with our webinarsonline workshopsarticles, and other resources, many of them free.
  • Self-education. Leaders are readers. Use the time once spent commuting and traveling to advance the organization’s lean management goals and your career by gaining new knowledge. Visit the bookstore.
  • Pivot with us. We canceled our in-person annual conference, the Lean Summit, but we’re working hard to put all the thought-leading insights and how-to content online for the Virtual Lean Summit (VLX). Get on the email list for the latest news.

Learn, network, and be inspired.

We curate and vet each speaker to ensure that they deliver unique actionable insights with high energy.

LEI’s summits bring people from all sorts of industries who experience common challenges and share how they were overcome. Join us and make meaningful connections, learn fresh tactics, and return to work energized with new skills you can apply right away.

We also provide the best networking opportunities even for those who are not as comfortable in traditional networking environments.
