Between the 2 events is a unique offering of workshops applicable to both sets of attendees. Join executives and their teams from around the globe and explore best practices as it relates to developing people and managing the business of the lean enterprise. Lean Leadership Week takes place September 11-15, 2017 in the charming Southern city of Savannah, GA! More information can be found at http://www.leanfrontiers.com/lean-leadership-week/.
Dwayne Butcher, a principle at Lean Frontiers, states; “The Lean Leadership Week is a unique opportunity to foster collaborative atmosphere through the different silos of the organization. Though the Leadership Workshops is just one day, it allows for the diversity of a much larger conference. We provide the focus in Lean People Development and Lean Accounting but a greater collaborative atmosphere in the Leadership Workshops.”
Lean People Development Summit, held September 11-12, is designed for those companies who realize the importance of engaging people, creating a supportive culture and developing leaders at all levels. The Summit will draw professionals from HR, continuous improvement, and leadership to explore how best to design job roles aimed at improvement, build problem-solving skills, define process improvement competencies, and develop leaders at all levels of the organization. This summit was formally known as the Lean HR Summit and has been offered for six years.
Optional Leadership Workshops, held September 13th, serving as a bridge between the Lean People Development and Accounting & Management Summits is a day of optional, intensive workshops. Space is limited for these workshops.
The Lean Accounting & Management Summit, September 14-15, will continue the 13year history of aligning the accounting function with lean operations and extending it to all part of running a lean organization. A learning track for Finance and Accounting professionals will address how best to measure and motivate lean improvements, while a management track will focus on managing the process from product development, to sales, to HR, and beyond.
