Upcoming Lean Conferences

Fall is conference season, and several good lean conferences are on the calendar.

Journey to Greatness, the annual conference of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence, is taking place Oct. 19-23 in Covington, Kentucky. Under an arrangement with Productivity Press, you can get a 15 percent discount on registration by using the discount code PRODP.

A week later, Oct. 26-29, the Institute of Industrial Engineers is holding its Operational Excellence Conference and Expo in St. Louis, Missouri.

And a week after that, our friends at Productivity, Inc. (a separate company) are sponsoring Lean in the Process Industry – Beyond TPM. That event is scheduled for Nov. 2-5 in Houston, Texas.

Conferences can be a great opportunity to learn and network. While conference spending is often one of the first areas to be cut back in tough times, the insights and connections you can gain at a conference may be just what you need to move ahead of the competition. I hope you can find away to attend one of these events.
