Lean Transformation Summit Reveals Keys to “Lean for the Long Term”

A unique group of companies, including two that have sustained lean transformations since the mid-1990s, will reveal how they are developing lean longevity at the Lean Transformation Summit conference sponsored by the Lean Enterprise Institute, March 3-4, 2010, Orlando.

Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 13, 2010 -- Many companies begin lean transformations only to succumb to cultural, management, and leadership challenges or the tough realities of a turbulent economy.

“But lean transformations at a handful of businesses have endured for a decade or more, and other companies have consciously built foundations for long-term success,” said Rachel Regan, LEI director of lean events and community support. “How these companies are pursuing lean longevity is the subject of the 2010 Lean Transformation Summit.”

The conference, sponsored by the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI), runs March 3-4 in Orlando, FL. Pre-conference workshops run March 1-2.

- How Goodrich Aerostructures steadily advanced a 1995 lean effort from the shop floor to today’s complete business system.
- How leadership behavior and employee training at FedEx Express turned airplane mechanics and other staff from skeptics into change agents.
- Keynote by Jim Womack, who led the MIT research team that coined the term "lean," on how to introduce an enduring lean management system.
