About Lean Leadership: Accounting, People Development, Management

The annual Lean Leadership Week event, spanning the weeks of September 13 and September 20th, is designed for Accounting, People Development, HR, Management and continuous improvement professionals.

The Summit is focused on action, not theory; so, prepare to log in, learn, network, discuss and practice key skills. 

We're going virtual...
And we're excited about it!

Just because we can’t meet face-to-face, again, in 2021 doesn’t mean we can’t gather and share!  We at Lean Frontiers have learned quite a bit about the virtual experience over this past year. So, we’re ready to bring you some new developments to the agenda.

Join your peers for a lively online learning and networking exchange. Join us for a virtual experience with a personal touch.

Join us for the 2021 Lean Leadership Events!
