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.
â€œBut 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,â€ said Rachel Regan, LEI director of lean events and community support. â€œHow these companies are pursuing lean longevity is the subject of the 2010 Lean Transformation Summit.â€
The conference, sponsored by the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI), runs March 3-4 in Orlando, FL. Pre-conference workshops run March 1-2.
