Lean Enterprise Institute Announces Withdrawal from 2020 Lean Coaching Summit

5/1/2020

Today, the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) canceled its participation in the 2020 Lean Coaching Summit due to the ongoing Covid-19 public health threat.

“The decision to not participate in the July event was made to ensure the safety of our community and team members,” said LEI President Josh Howell. “Guidance from medical authorities is that the need to maintain social distancing will continue for several months.”

In conjunction with the decision, LEI Team Leader Karen Gaudet will not lead a workshop, as previously scheduled.
