The Lean Education Academic Network (LEAN) is having their Spring meeting [the broken link was removed] at the University of Kentucky in Lexington May 10th – May 12th. This is targeted at educators and students (a fairly small slice of our audience): still it looks interesting so here are some details.
The agenda [the broken link was removed] includes:
Tour Summit Polymer, considered by the Toyota Supplier Support Center to be the leanest manufacturing facility in the US. And a tour of the Lean Boot Camp in groups, meet with students, see learning factories.
The LEAN site includes some presentations from the winter meeting [the broken link was removed].
I will be co-presenting the How to Create Unethical, Ineffective Organizations That Go Out of Business [the broken link was removed] seminar sponsored by the Deming Institute coming up in Boston April 24th to 26th.
Jussi Kyllonen, John Hunter and Joyce Orsini (President of The W. Edwards Deming Institute, and Director of The Deming Scholars MBA Program at Fordham University) will facilitate the seminar. Louis E. Lataif, Dean of Boston University’s School of Management, former President of Ford Europe, and a leader in transformation will present a session titled: “Every management system is perfectly designed (to get what it’s getting).”
