Lean Transformation Study Trip
Where: Seattle, WA, Bellevue, WA, and Ogden, UT
When: June 15-18, 2015

In the midst of your organization’s Lean transformation, wouldn’t it help to have your key leaders see what the finished result looks like? The Lean Transformation Study Trip does just that, overseeing structured, in-depth trips to organizations that are successfully reaping the benefits of their own Lean practices and allowing your leadership team to see it firsthand—at every organizational level.

Our Study Trip takes you into the inner workings of a successful Lean organization, in both hospital and manufacturing settings. At each location, your leadership gets insight into best practices, tricks of the trade, and success stories. This unique and energizing experience to learn from advanced Lean practitioners and to reflect on how to apply these principles to your organization can be the key to your successful Lean transformation.
