Thank you for your interest in our inaugural lean product and process development (LPPD) conference "Designing the Future"

Why call it "Designing the Future"?  Because that’s exactly what organizations do when they develop new products and processes – nothing less than designing their future because the decisions made during development will impact them for years to come. 

I am thrilled that some of the most successful practitioners and leading thinkers have agreed to speak at this important learning and sharing event. 

LPPD principles and practices comprise a unique and powerful system that has been successfully applied to transform development capability in automotive, construction, robotics, health care, aerospace, furniture and others. Consider joining us in Traverse City to meet others who are on this journey and learn how a diverse group of organizations are applying LPPD methods to create new value in their industry.

We are working diligently to make this conference the most important lean conference you will attend this year.

Best Regards,
Jim Morgan
