Northeast L.E.A.N. Conference

The annual event was created by the non-profit GBMP to provide information and inspiration to lean practitioners – from those just starting out to seasoned lean leaders from manufacturing, healthcare, insurance and other business sectors. The practical learning format features exceptional keynote and breakout, panel and poster presentations, peer-to-peer discussions, hands-on simulations, interactive learning and sharing, and unlimited networking opportunities for more than 600 attendees. This year’s theme, “Lean-By-Doing: Accelerate Continuous Improvement” emphasizes the tacit nature of implementing lean, the importance of tying together the technical and social sides of lean, the significance of management’s involvement and the ability of organizations to sustain the gains. The Silver Toaster Award is presented annually at the conference to one outstanding employee who has embraced lean, performing his or her job always with lean in mind, who helps others implement lean concepts and who exemplifies the Vision, Values and Standards of the Award.
The theme this year – Lean-By-Doing: Accelerating Continuous Improvement – emphasizes the tacit nature of implementing Lean, the importance of tying together the technical and social sides of Lean, the significance of management’s involvement and the ability of organizations to sustain the gains.
