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
