Lean Summit + Designing the Future Summit 

By attending, you’ll reap the value of two formerly live, annual events – the Lean Summit and the Designing the Future SummitThis powerful combination promises to catalyze your enterprise learning by demonstrating how LT&P in business operations extends to lean product and process development (LPPD). 

For presenters, we’ve selected lean practitioners who have demonstrated the perseverance and grit to sustain transformations and commitments to lean practice over the long haul, through good times and bad. They’ll deliver not just information but inspiration, which we can all use some of nowadays.  

Typical VLX week overview.

You’ll get at least two, week-long learning sessions weekly -- that's ten weeks ofeducation across the breadth of lean thinking and practice.
